Opensprinkler 2.3 DC
App version 1.6.0
Started up my opensprinkler for the summer and noticed that I wasn’t getting any weather updates to adjust the water %. Google lead to me a forum post that said the opensprinkler assumes the router is the dns server but it was an old post and i think it said that issue was fixed. My current setup is dns and router are two different devices. I tried a few reboots and even powered it off for a while and nothing seemed to get the weather calls to work. I plugged in an old router that could act as a DNS server and change my dhcp server to hand out that ip for the gateway and rebooted opensprinker. After reboot “Last successful weather call” updated along with water level %.
Also is there a way through the web ui to get diagnostic info such as network information which would of told me that what dns server the device was using? If there is a way to get more debugging information I would be more than happy to do so I just cant find any docs on it.
In ‘Edit Options’ -> Advanced you should be able to set a custom DNS server. If your OpenSprinkler is in DHCP mode, I think (if I remember correctly) the DNS server is automatically assigned to it by the router through the DHCP process. But as I said, you can also customize it in Edit Options.
