v1.5.1 is out! This release is filled to bursting with bugfixes, some of which were quite major (turns out that the moonrise/moonset times have been an day off this entire time!). It also includes improved Network Meter iconography and some other minor tweaks. You can grab it from the update notification.

I'll need more details. What are your system specs? What skins are you running? Did you enable hardware acceleration in the Rainmeter settings?

Hi,

With release 1.5.1, I have noticed a minor issue with the Network Meter's display of the external IP. On one Windows 7 VM, where I use a VPN, the external IP shows the VPN IP regardless of whether to VPN is connected or not. When disconnecting the VPN, the external address is no longer updating to show my normal public IP. On a second Windows 7 VM, the Network Meter's external IP just sits at "fetching..." and also does not display the public IP address.

Both VM's had NetMonitor installed. On both NetMonitor was uninstalled to see if that would have an effect but it does not appear to have made a difference.

If there is any information that I can provide or anything else I can do to assist with diagnosing this issue, please let me know.

Thanks for all you efforts!

As you noticed, uninstalling NetMonitor won't make any difference; the service just watches your adapters and reports the number of bytes in and out. To help debug your issue, open the Rainmeter About log and connect/disconnect your VPN. You should see messages in the log if it detects changes to the active network adapter. If it does not report a change is detected, that could be the source of the issue.

That said, there is a chance that some code is missing in the Network Meter. Edit the skin and find the measure [MeasureInternalIp]. Add the following line at the end:

Code: Select all

OnChangeAction=[!SetOptionGroup ActiveNet Refresh "ya"][!UpdateMeasureGroup ActiveNet][!UpdateMeasure MeasureNetworkIcon]
Save the file, refresh the Network Meter, and see if the issue is resolved.

Hi,

Thanks for the quick response. I did take a look at the skin and found the code you indicated but it was under the [MeasureAdapterName] section (and it also included a log message action). It was not present in the [MeasureInternalIp] section. I have not yet added it there as the InternalIP seems to refresh OK on VPN connect/disconnect, it is the ExternalIP that exhibits the issue.

I did also enable logging and then looked at the log as you suggested and did find something there that seemed to point to the cause of the problem. I found the following noted in the log at the point I clicked on the "Refresh external IP" button

NOTE (09:46:00.263) ModernGadgets\NetworkMeter\NetworkMeter.ini: Refreshing external IP address
DBUG (09:46:00.794) ModernGadgets\NetworkMeter\NetworkMeter.ini - [MeasureExternalIp]: Fetching: https://api.ipify.org/
ERRO (09:46:03.104) ModernGadgets\NetworkMeter\NetworkMeter.ini - [MeasureExternalIp]: (Fetch error) The server name or address could not be resolved (ErrorCode=12007)


Following the inline documentation in the skin file, I changed the URL to an alternate service, reloaded the skin, and now the External IP refreshes as it should.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!

Just installed this... WOW! Great work! :17good

I dumped 8GadgetPack literally 2 min after installing this skin.

The only thing I'm missing (I know others have brought this up, so consider this a +1 vote) is a real ping monitor like this one...

Pretty please? :rosegift:
