Edison Wifi reconfiguration, python problem

RCopp

question, I tried to switch the intel edison to a new wifi network, after having it setup for another one (new ip adress)

again used configure_edison --wifi for this, All seems to be fine, ifconfig shows also the new network

however now this line in a python script hangs

host = socket.gethostbyname(socket.gethostname())

when i configure the network back to the old one, all is fine again...

a reboot also is not helping...

any idea?

Hi,

What image are you using? What is the output of configure_edison –version?

What is the output of /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf?

Do you have any additional errors? Have you tried with configure_edison –setup?

Sergio
