FCUSB + Iogear GUWIP204 on e EQ-3

Post by JBD » Thu Jan 30, 2014 8:14 am

There has already been a small jeme'm setup with a head neq-3 pro synscan with goto and Telescope Orion ED-80 for visual and planetary photography.
Long, I tried making the head with this guide for astro-photo, but without success.
I just bought FCUSB and it works well if you plug directly into a USB port on the computer.
By cons, in my setup, I use a IOGear Wireless USB GUWIP204
I connect to my network with a cable that will allow the telescope controlled remotely with software like MaimDL.
The connection between the FCUSB and GUWIP204 not done!
I connection and a message that says the software found FCUSB,but connexte die!
There is something I can do?
I would put my setup outside and me in my house warm for the controlled..;0)

Thank in advance!

I don't know about the wireless USB. Maybe it drops the connection if there is no activity for some period of time.

Is the part of the wireless USB that is connected to the FCUSB connected to a power source?
