LED strip bricklet over WiFi.

Recommended Posts



I receive only of timeouts in the BrickViewer when running the LED strip bricklet over a WiFi connection. No way I can controle the LED strip. (Step Down Power + Master Brick + WiFi extension + LED strip Bricklet)


When I run the setup via the USB connection (using localhost connection from the BrickViewer) on the MasterBrick it works fine. Meaning I can controle the LED strip.


So is it correct that I will need to run the LED strip bricklet setup over a direct USB connection (for example using a RaspberryPI) and it will not work over a WiFi connection?


And why will it not work over WiFi? Response is very slow, possible because the LED strip bricklet requires to much bandwidth?

I suspect that the Brick Viewer sensd a bit too much data to be transferred over WIFI. Have you tried it with your own program?


At what rate does it work and and what rate doesn't it work?

No, not yet. But will try some of my own programs.

I was indeed using a very high update frequency from the Brickviewer.


It is not a major problem. And will see what it possible over wifi.


Thanks for the response.
