I have a DIY dongle with RPI3. It is connected to the internet through a local hotspot.
On terminal, ifconfig tells me:
uap0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.4.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.4.255 ether b8:27:eb:26:fd:40 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 3784 bytes 519229 (507.0 KiB) RX errors 0 dropped 244 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 3768 bytes 3298558 (3.1 MiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0 wlan0: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 192.168.0.74 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.0.255 ether b8:27:eb:26:fd:40 txqueuelen 1000 (Ethernet) RX packets 3554 bytes 3027701 (2.8 MiB) RX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 frame 0 TX packets 2759 bytes 506723 (494.8 KiB) TX errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 0 carrier 0 collisions 0
This is a fresh install using Etcher to flash latest release.
After I login device through http://local.autopi.io, there does not appear to be anything for me to configure other than Wifi since I don’t have a simcard. After I save, nothing else happens. The dongle is connected to internet through local hotspot, but on https://my.autopi.io/, the dongle remains red.
No matter how many times I restart the dongle, the “AutoPi-Initial” network remains available and I can connect to the local settings page, but the online/cloud page does not detect the dongle.
Also I note that when I access the “status” page on http://local.autopi.io/#/local, it’s not clear whether the dongle itself is being detected properly or not. Is there any terminal command I can run to test status of dongle?
RPI3 can properly access internet through hotspot:
PING google.com (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from syd15s03-in-f14.1e100.net (18.104.22.168): icmp_seq=1 ttl=52 time=7.75 ms 64 bytes from syd15s03-in-f14.1e100.net (22.214.171.124): icmp_seq=2 ttl=52 time=7.74 ms
I don’t what else to do.
