So first I must ask why are you using CdC via ASCOM and Explorestars.
As you watch the video Jerry make the point that ascom communicates via TCP and Explorestars communicates via UDP. You set the communication mode using the Configuration Manager. Note the iExos will not communicate with Explorestars if the PMC8 has been put into TCP mode for ASCOM.
So that is your problem. You have to have the wireless mode specific to the purpose. It's just the way the iExos wifi module works.
