Archil, what did you do to fix it? I’ve been having the same problem the past two days and can’t connect to easel.

Hola ArchilTophuridze, Tiene mucho suerte por conseguir. yo he parecido a ArchilTophuridze (COM3), No puedo conectar callallete a la maquina en la PC

Hola PeterJames y no puedo llamar por telefono porque yo vivo en españa y soy Sorda ( no oir) por eso necesito soporte :tired_face:

Por favor ayudarmeeeeeee…

Trate de emailing help@inventables.com y tal vez tener a alguien que le puede contestar en español.

I was able to fix it with some help from customer support. I think the problem was two fold…my arduino and gshield were not seated properly because the enclosure opening wasn’t low enough, and second, my Firefox browser wouldn’t allow easel to connect to the machine.

just call them they will help or do the remote assistance. mainly you have to flash something
