Expedition and Vesper Cortex Network Issues - WIFI or Cable

I purchased a new Vesper Cortex AIS and installed it recently. 
 
I’ve run into two Expedition problems when using the Cortex.
 
[list=1]

  • Wifi – when connecting the Cortex to my PC/Expedition via wifi all seems good until Expedition drops the connection.  Other programs connected to the Cortex (e.g. Navionics on my iPad) continue with no issues.

  •  
     
    [list=1]
  • So, I decided to connect the Cortex NMEA 0183 port to the PC via a USB-CABLE-RS422 USB Breakout Cable.  This seems to work equally well if not better, but occasionally Expedition terminates unexpectedly with no error message.  Expedition does NOT terminate when the cable is not plugged in.

  •  
    Two questions
     

    • Has anyone seen similar issues when using Vesper Cortex with Expedition?
    • Does Expedition have an error log file that I can view to try to begin tracking down cause of the problems?

     
    Thanks for any help!

    Which version of Exp? There was a bug where AIS could cause a crash recently.

    The AIS crash issue was fixed in 11.12.5. 

    There should be an update today for some Middle Sea race requests.

    The update seems to have fixed my problem!

    Thank you, I should learn to be more patient.

    Apologies for the inconvenience. It was an intermittent issue after an hour and I didn't see it in testing.
