Robot C Vexnet connection issues
I tried to connect Vexnet joystick to controller - following pairing instructions using usb cable. Would not work. Robot light on both controller and joystick flashing, will not connect or run anything.
Attempted to download / reinstall firmware to update / reset both. Had switched to Win8 / RobotC 4.0 this fall (just installed). Followed instructions to set communication port, then download firmware for VEX 2.0 Cortex.
Part way through download, I got this message :
I followed these instructions: plugged in batter, turned controller on, checked cables. After that was done, the communication port now will only show as disconnected with the status listed as "offline". Also, the "robot" and "game" lights on the controllers are now flashing (fast), and the computer will not recognize the controller.
What do I try next?
