Zwift (Windows) loses the Ant+ connection with all devices after a few minutes of driving (trainer, heart rate monitor, cadence sensor).
It has happened to me several times. Zwift abandoned connection with all devices. Usually after 10-30 minutes of driving.
Today I wanted to do an FTP test but the connection was broken after 24 minutes. So what did I do:
- I unplugged the Ant+ antenna and plugged it in again. - result, nothing. does not detect any devices.
- I switched the antenna to another USB port. - result, something moved, zwift found devices, connected and suddenly abandoned. And so he went through each device in turn over and over again. trainer - power - cadence - controla - heart, over and over again.
- I restarted the computer, started zwift, turned on the ride, drove 18 minutes and flap, lost connection. Finally irritated, I turned off zwift and started writing this post.
A few weeks earlier it was the same, but the connection was abandoned after 10 minutes - only then I thought maybe the fault of the motherboard and USB controller, or maybe the fault lies on the Ant+ antenna side. I borrowed a laptop from my father, installed Zwift on it and connected the antenna and went through the whole training antenna works.
How to check if it’s the USB controller fault - I don’t know. : /
The keyboard works, the mouse works, the sound card works - is it the USB controller’s fault - the south bridge - I don’t know, the other devices work. : /
Does anyone know the solution to the problem? Please help.
