    MyQ Garage Door Opener

    Have a neighbor here not automating adding wireless trinkets...

    Google Home, Alexa, WiFi thermostat ....

    So he just replaced his GDO with a Chamberlein with MyQ. He cannot configure his MyQ button to his wireless. He sees it in the configuration set up.

    He called customer support and they asked him to open up two ports on his firewall. Still not workng.

    I told him to return his MyQ button and get a new one. Personally here never connected my GDO to myQ.

    Any suggestions?

    So opened up ports 53 and 8883 on his firewall for his Android phone. Testing.

      Thank you Chris.

      Yeah here never connected my GDO to the myQ service.

      Always have had my alarm panel configured to it and lately tinkering with the mcsMQTT firmware on a SonOff basic which works great....

      Neighbor called customer support.

      They asked him to open a couple of ports...53 and 8883 on his Cisco-Linksys WAP combo router (which I did). Did not see it being saved so will need to update the firmware on his router.

      Other instructions relate to using channel 1 on his wireless router configuration, changing security methodology et al....lots of hoops just to connect.

      If it doesn't work he will get a replacement wireless module (which now is part of the Chamberlein GDO).

        You may resolve it with the firmware update, as you have noted that is having trouble saving the config, but I'm with you on your initial impression that it is a faulty unit. If all his other wireless devices are connecting without issues and he has a solid signal in the garage it should have configured it in a matter of minutes. Maybe with a little luck your update will do the trick!

          Gonna try the firmware upgrade first. I have suggested replacing the WAP piece of the Cisco-Linksys router with a Ruckus WAP. Only thing is is that I will need to install it.

            Pete How did it go with your firmware update? Or are you busy installing new WAPs?
