First off Merry Christmas to all and your Family’s.
OK setting up Wifi, so the Raspberry can be “standalone”, that is what I would like to achieve.
I have been using the Raspberry Pi for several months ethernet connected, and all good so I am familiar with the max2play interface
The Wifi USB I am using was recommended/bought at the same store I bought the PI.
I have purchased Premium to install Access Point
Accesspoint is installed and active! is what the Access Point Panel says
Status: WiFi USB adapter status is active. WiFi connection status is active (IP: 192.168.189.1) is what the Wifi/LAN says
I have a Monitor attached to the Raspberry and it shows Logitech Media Server running with 2 IPS, the Ethernet 192.168.1.143 and the Wifi 192.168.189.1
So…how do I access the Raspbery via the Pi?
I have tried putting the Wifi address in both a Browser AND my Squeeze pad App, used to control the Raspberry
Nothing seems to work and am totally confused.
ANY guidance I can get here, would be very much appreciated
Thanx in advance, Fred in Canada5. January 2016 at 17:35 #17583
If you have your RPi set up as an access point, you should be able to access it as an available WiFi network. If you have a WiFi-Router at home, you can just use the WiFi/LAN setup and it should start showing up in your router. Please try using just WiFi connecting to your router or just a fully set up access point to access the Pi and you should be fine.14. January 2016 at 20:06 #17853
Funxer & Heiner thanx so much for your input.
I believe that the root of the problem is my Wifi Dongle, which appears to fail during the necessary drivers loading.
I have ordered a Raspberry Pi approved Wifi Dongle, which I should receive shortly, and when I do will try the setup instructions again
Thank you once again for your input, it is very much appreciated, Fred
