Needing help... again. 

My Trimble R8 works well with a network, and suddenly, lost radio. In the controller wifi settings, it is showing me that wifi is available, but it will not connect. After one day of not working, yesterday afternoon it worked for a few minutes. So I turned it off, drove to site this morning, and no work. Need help, again! came to the best place to ask. thanks as always.

Thats happen to me a few times and my solution is take the battery out of the controller and let it set for 5 to 10 minutes then return back to controller and reboot.

Are you indeed connecting to WIFI or a cellular network?  Which WIFI network are you connecting too?  Are you hotspotting your phone?If you are trying to connect to an internal SIM card network (like your phone) WIFI has to be disabled, or it wont connect to the cell towers.

Sometimes re-booting will fix that.
