WLAN not available
« on: 19 May 2017, 22:47 »
Anyone else had issues with the Discover Media system, I did at one point connect my phones hotspot to the wlan in the car.

However that was brief, now it constantly says "WLAN not available - another connection is in use", when trying to get car-net registered (yes I have my access code) it seems to think that a car stick is installed, which it certainly isnt.

Anyone else ever suffer this and is there a quick fix?

If not I'll be back to dealers already!

Park the car outside your house and use your home WiFi?

Well...

1. That's no good to me when I want to use car-net in the middle of the Dales
2. Doesn't matter if its phone hotspot or home wifi, whenever I select WLAN on the menu setup it says the connection isn't available due to another connection in use.

Hold down the power button until the MIB unit reboots?

Good ole restart technique! Unfortunately it failed. (I'd already tried)

Go into the setup menu and do a factory reset on the bit that is causing the problem?

Well, after hours yesterday with no avail and having not touched it since 8am this morning, just out of curiosity tried it again just now and all of a sudden WLAN is working again and I was able to register for CarNet finally.

Guess something in the system decided to reset itself.
