    I reset it to the default settings and reconfigured everything.
    I rebooted all my Ethernet modem/switches.
    It seems to be working so far with the correct local time
    Thanks for your help.

    Does anybody know how to set the CLOCK? I don’t want to use NTP sync.
    My system is now completely unusable after following Ray’s suggestion of removing/replacing the battery.
    I keeps resetting to 0:00 every time I connect to the web server.

    Now it seems to be resetting the RTC every time I reboot.
    Sat, 1 Jan 2000 00:00:08 UTC-7:00
    Any ideas?

    I don’t care about drift right now. I just need to get it working.

    It’s a wired connection.
    So there is no way to set the clock?

    Hi Ray,

    I did look at the second suggestion you gave me and the time was changing. Maybe I misunderstood what you meant but it was always exactly 3 hours ahead of my local time.

    Anyway, I took out the battery and put it back in. The time is now 0:0 and the date is 1/1 so I guess it’s not getting time from the internet.

    I don’t have time right now to chase down this connection issue so I just want to run disconnected (NTP off)
    So how do I set the clock with NTP off? I walked throught all the steps on the device (using B3) and looked at the options on the web page but can’t see any way to do this.

    Thanks again,

    Hi Ray,

    Thank you for your quick responses. I really appreciate the help.

    So this problem just isn’t making sense to me. No matter what I do, the local time is UTC-4.

    In my first email I included the login I get when I power-on.
    “6 May 2013 09:48:04 UTC-7:00”. It is 06:48 AM local time.

    Doesn’t this show that the time has been saved as UTC-7:00 and the the local time is calculated wrong?
    So it seems like I saved it correctly. Is there something I need to do to make it ‘use’ the UTC offset that is shown?
    I have tried saving the time zone by using the B3 button on the device and also from the web interface using ‘reboot’.
    But nothing gives me the correct local time.

    Incidentally, I have saved it many times with different UTC offsets.
    Each time I power on, the UTC offset is correct, but the local time shown always incorrectly corresponds to UTC-4.

    So it seems that the problem is not saving the setup, but in calculating the local time from the UTC offset.
    Or it is not using the UTC offset that I save and is somehow stuck at UTC-4:00.

    I have tried changing the Location to different time zones and even leaving it blank but nothing changes the time to local time.

    Also the time does change so it is tracking.

    This is driving me crazy. Please help.
    I know it’s probably something dumb that I’m doing but I can’t seem to figure it out.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Here are my setting from the web page, maybe they will help.

    Hi Ray,
    Thanks for the quick response.
    I can connect ok with the IP address which I have set to (static).
    Sometimes I change IP addresses on my network & the only reason I want to connect with the name is to make it easier for my wife to connect.
    She manages all the water on our 2 ac mini-farm.
    I just thought there might be something dumb I was doing.
