Problems with IotaWatt, appears to lose Wifi

Hi,

Purchased IotaWatt about 6 weeks ago and have been waiting for some renovations to install properly.

I have a metal meter box which it is currently sitting in. I originally was using my home router, but have a second wireless router within a few meters of it so I thought I would use that to improve signal and reduce any losses.

I’m not sure if the wireless is dropping out or it is freezing, but it seems to stop transmitting and cannot be pinged on network after a while.

From the log I can get this (note I changed from WWorld3 to WWorld1 router after a few runs). The power failures seem to coincide with when I turn off/on after it loses signal.

Is there something else I should be looking for? note I have setup a plastic enclosure next to the meter box and when eleco is here next I will get the CT’s run to it and have the IotaWatt box there, but wanted to see if there was anything else I could do to troubleshoot prior to him coming. Any other logs?
