RB 1.5.3 Not Linking

Help, my RB is not LINKing to my CDJ2000s (via my DJM2000) frequently and it's becoming frustrating.

I've tried checking all my firewall settings, rebooting the computer etc and still it occurs.

Next attempt will be a new ethernet cable.

 Can anyone help on the matter?

Are you using a laptop?  If so, try actually disabling the wireless network adapter.  RekordBox will, on the whole, refuse to acknowledge Link if there is more than 1 network interface present.  The issue runs deeper than this though, as I have a PC with 1 network adapter, which I can only get to link maybe 5% of the time.

Thanks for that.

Yes I am using a Laptop but it's only over the last couple of months that the LINK has started failing a lot.

Not completely sure how to disable the network adapter? !

Mine failed to link at a gig on Saturday, disabled the wireless, still didnt work..

 

Eventually found the problem was that I had set a static IP on the ethernet adapter. Set it back to automatic then everything came back to life....

It wasn't cable problem Pulse, but then RB Linked up anyway?!

Dunno aye.

Went bought a 64GB USB3.0 for backup just in case.

Hope not to resort too often.

Aussie.

It's Linked successfully the last two times so hopefully this continues.

So it's sporadic in its connection?  Have you tried replacing one or more of the cables?
