Microsoft Edge Bug Workaround for Model DI-808

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditmail

There’s a bug in the Microsoft Edge web browser that prevents the program from working properly with DATAQ Instruments’ model DI-808 Web Data Logger. The problem manifests itself when you attempt to connect to the DI-808 using Edge with a direct connection (no router involvement) and by using the DI-808’s factory default address of http://169.254.67.83. In this situation the browser will connect to the DI-808 to display the instrument’s login screen, but entering login credentials only causes the login screen to refresh while denying access to the device.

Here’s a step-by-step workaround for this problem:

  1. From Windows’ Control Panel select Network and Internet
