    Your almost there Tomgru. Highlight THE FIRST instance line where the SOURCe is 192.168.1.101 (your Roomba).
    Then look in the lower Frame and expand the last 2 options, you should see some data. POst the screen shots.

    ADDTIONALLY click View on menu bar and ensure Packet Bytes is checked also. your missing the data window which will show your BLID.
    Here is an exmple though it is NOT the communication of roomba, but shows the area where the data will be.

    Also... this is what I see from Node.js if it means anything:

    Make sure your robot is on the Home Base and powered on (green lights on). Then press and hold the HOME button on your robot until it plays a series of tones (about 2 seconds). Release the button and your robot will flash WIFI light.
    Then press any key here...

    once installed set up your roomba for the node.js capture as outlined in above posts. just before starting it, start the wireshark capture then kick off the process. once complete stop the wireshark capture. review the captured data looking for any instance of your roomba's IP address. Drill down into the details and you will find the roomba BLID. ( I am purely going off memory here, if it doesnt work out for you let me know and I'll try to reproduce it with screen shots).

    This is all I get.

    Update ...
    Ok disregard ... I was able to use wireshark to get the information. So far at first glance it appears to work with the i7 series as well I'll report back once fully tested.

    10/24/18 - sadly I think I have to report this plugin does not work in its current state with the i7. At first glance it appeared to work however it soon It grabs the CPU and runs away. Perhaps in the future there will be an update.

    10/27/18 - Worked with Blade and determined that somehow my password changed. once corrected the plugin works without consuming the CPU. Some of the "features" do not work, could be differences in the new model software. Core functions work though.

    my guess and it is just that, a guess, is that it changed when I changed Wifi networks.

    I am pretty sure this theory is correct. I changed wifi networks again and the password changed again.

    My 960 is still the same password as it was almost a year ago now. I'm going to assume the password change only happens during a certain chain events. Maybe after requesting the password (Holding the home button down) several times it causes that. I still have plugin issues though, high CPU and disconnects until plugin reboot. I now have a plugin (think its called "Restart") that will auto power cycle when the last update time doesn't change after the roomba was requested to run or if CPU starts getting to high. So I no longer see the issue but can see the plugin request.

    I actually went and redid the Doritos process again last time this happens and I saw that I had a different password. This is how I know it isn’t something with the plugin only. My pswd actually changed.

    Are you sure the password is actually changing and the plugin is not just failing to communicate? I have found that if I do some plugin updates not related to BLRoombaWifi for some reason my roomba plugin stops responding shortly after or during those other plugins being updated. After turning the plugin off for a bit and back on or after rebooting homeseer the plugin works again. I have not had to redo the password. I'm still trying to look into why the plugin seems to stops responding after certain other plugins being updated.

    So in you case it would be nice to know if you recently updated other plugins before this happened and if a reboot of HS3 (try this if plugin reboot doesn't fix it) or a long Plugin reboot fixes this. Or you should see the old roomba password and compare to new.

    I also have static IP (in router side, per MAC) on my roomba and don't reboot the router. I use a Unifi USG and Multiple Unifi AP's.

    Sorry for the late response. I have been travelling. So yes I installed a plugin which allows me to auto enable/disable the plugin when certain messages come up. I did this manually today to ensure my events were working right, and I am not seeing any of my roombas update with status. A big key pointing in the direction of a changing password is the fact that it can't even pull my schedule which I can see still clearly exists on my roomba app. I am not sure what is changing my password so often for my roombas, but if anyone has found a way around that I would greatly appreciate sharing that info. I hear alot of people say there passwords arent changing, so maybe it is something on my side that is triggering it? I have assigned static IP addresses to all of my roombas and I do not regularly restart my router. When I get back stateside I might call roomba tech support and try to finesse some answers into what will trigger a change. At least that way we have a reason.

    This is only for the 960 model? Mine is connected now and password has not changed yet. The plugin itself may have some hiccups but has nothing to do with the 960 model. As far as why the passwords change for some I'm unsure. Maybe the reset the roomba, for change wifi.

    I have seen an issue before where after I updated hs3 I have had to cycle this plugin on and off again to get it to work. But that is also not a 960 issue. That's a plugin issue.

    Right now with yours not connected in two days does a plugin on and off fix it? Or do you know what the issue is?

    I think your spreading false info. I have had a 960 and I still do and it works.
