Edison device shows up on router's DHCP client list with no name (only MAC address) ...

Hi -

I'm hoping this is a mere oversight on my part but ... I've connected my Edison (image ww18-15) to Wifi using the Configure_Edison -- wifi command.

It's connected and I can communicate with it both by serial and by SSH over wifi.

Earlier I ran through the configuration to give the machine a name (again, using the Configure_Edison command). I can see from the command prompt that it's called "Edison_Green".

However, when I look at my routers list of connected DHCP clients ... my Edison shows up with no name. I can see the MAC address, the IP Address, and other data. But the name field is blank. Other devices all have a name.

Could someone tell me how to set a name so that it shows up on list of connected devices on my router?

THANKS!

- Dave F.

Hi,

This probably happened because you haven't set an SSID. Run the command configure_edison –setup. When going through the configuration steps, make sure to enter an SSID. The steps are:

  • Set Edison Password
  • SSID
  • Select a Network
  • Network Password

As an additional suggestion, flash to the latest image found in http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/edison-iotdk-image-280915.zip http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25384/eng/edison-iotdk-image-280915.zip using the Flash Tool Lite https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/flash-tool-lite-user-manual IoT

Thanks Sergio.

I followed all your instructions ... except that I used FlashAll.bat to install the latest image.

Then I ran the "configure_edison --setup" command and input all the info.

It didn't fix my of Edison's name not showing up on my DHCP client list on my router, though. (But it DID fix my auto reconnect to wifi problem ... so that works now.)

Thanks again.

What is the model of your router?

Post a picture of the output of your Edison's ifconfig and iwconfig and another picture of your router's DHCP client list.

Try to use connman to connect to the network. To enable and start connman run:

systemctl enable connman

systemctl start connman

Now, follow this guide to scan and connect to network https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/519955 IoT - Connecting to a Wi-Fi Network | Intel® Developer Zone

The guide is for Galileo but the same steps apply for Edison.
