Firmware

I was trying to use Hiveon firmware for my L3+. It would not switch to my pools. It would only mine on the dev fee pools. It took forever to get another firmware to install and remove Hiveon. Now my L3+ always says Socket connect failed: Connection refused unless I use Hiveon firmware. Any ideas or suggestions on why this is happening?

Hiveon firmware has been running for a couple hours and still has not mined on my configured pools.
