Trouble with LOR contollers

Hey guys, I have been doing this for a few yrs now and have never had trouble like this before. I run my 12 ccr on comm 3 and my 4 LOR boxes on Comm 4. For some reason this year its been nothing but pure hell. First the hardware utility will only recognize the box it is directly plugged into. If it's box one it will only see box one, if its box 2 it will only see box 2 so I can't daisy chain them together. The odd thing is that the lights will all be solid. Now if I try to run the LOR boxes and the 12 crr show together it jams the ccr strips and I can't stop the sequencer on my pc. I have no idea what is going on here but this is a freakin mess. I don't know if I need to start from ground zero or what. Any suggestions would be great. The other odd thing is that I can control the lights from the HU with no issues.  .

I wish it was that easy,lol... I have been running them at 500k since last yr. Something is not right somewhere, it doesnt choke if I run  it has a show it does do it when I run it off the sequencer.

Well I think I found the problem,maybe.. I took box number 1 and put it on the same network has the CCR's and ran a cable directly to the box. That seems to be working and the other 3 boxes are all recognized by the hardware utility. I also found some channels that we not on the right network. I ran them tonight and all seemed good. I have never tried unchecking move grid with play, I will keep that in mind, thanks

Check the wire fingers of the RJ45 connectors inside each controller. They are easily pushed in and don't always retract back out when the cable is disconnected. This will mess you up in huge ways. I just had one controller than flat out wouldn't talk on either RJ45. The wire fingers looked fine till I brought it inside, magnifying glass and flashlight up close...they were all pushed in. Tiny tweezers, very, very carefully, pulled them back up. That controller is now back in the yard and running normally.
