Well at least it's running GCC again. Too bad about the Wi-Fi. I'm going to work on fixing mine this weekend. I had Wi-Fi and myghl but not now.

I've never gotten it to work. Tried all three ways.
Its definitely me or my computer / router.

Ghl support emailed me, just haven't got back to them.
Gcc was stressing me out.

Good luck, let me know how it goes.

Did you get it fixed?
I had to download the new wifi software and ping the p4 via router with wsp.

I can connect to my Profilux 3 ex using GCC and the local network IP.

I want to upgrade the firmware so need to connect via USB.

I notice you have 2 USB-Serial driver packages available depending on the chipset inside the Profilux - is there a way to tell which chipset my Profilux has as I have tried both the FTDI and Prolific drivers and neither seem to connect.

The Prolific has an error in Device Manager and the FTDI does not so I am leaning towards the FTDI driver. I am on Windows 10 and yes the COM ports match. I have also assigned another port on both the computer and GCC with no luck.

Thanks
