RTF Internet Access

Jump to solution

I was able to connect to the drone via ssh, but now I wish to gain internet access to it by having it connect to my home's wi-fi. I am trying to use the command to disable it's default hotspot based on this instruction https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration# networking-internet-access 08 Aero Network and System Administration · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub but I get the message "Error: 'hotspot' is not an active connection". I've also tried to modify the default ssid and psk, but the message is similar: "Error: Unknown connection 'hotspot'". I am now wondering if there is a different default name to 'hotspot'.

Also, since I am currently only able to connect to the drone via ssh, I'm thinking that if I do succeed in disabling the AP, I would be disconnected from the drone and be unable to reconnect since there would be no AP to connect to.

For clarity's sake, I have originally tried to get video output from the drone via micro HDMI but I was unsuccessful. I then tried to see if I could at least connect to the drone via ssh and this worked but I lack internet access. I now want to gain internet access, but I'm afraid that by disabling the AP I'm currently connected to, I would be unable to reconnect to the drone.

Hello Trixie,

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

Please Make sure you are using the latest software/firmware. You can find the latest software in this link: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/97178/Intel-Aero-Compute-Board

 

 

I tested the commands in the https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/08-Aero-Network-and-System-Administration# networking-wifi guide and the device was called hotspot. You should be on the latest v1.6 software

 

 

If you connect a micro USB cable between your computer and the USB3 OTG port you can ssh to the board using IP 192.168.7.2. The IP can be found by doing ifconfig and it should be listed on the usb0 device on aero.

 

 

Hope this helps.

 

 

Regards,

 

Octavian
