If you've acquired a WiFi dongle from us (or you've configured it yourself)
then you should see a WiFi network (probably at the 5 GHz frequency band) named as erle-
Once done, connect to Erle-Brain 2 using
$ ssh firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you are connected to Erle-Brain 2, you need to change
@localhost:~$sudo nano /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf
This is how it looks like:
# Basic configuration interface=wlan0 ssid=erle-robotics #bridge=br0 # WPA and WPA2 configuration macaddr_acl=0 auth_algs=1 ignore_broadcast_ssid=0 wpa=3 wpa_passphrase=holaerle wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK wpa_pairwise=TKIP rsn_pairwise=CCMP # Hardware configuration #driver=rtl871xdrv #driver=nl80211 ieee80211n=1 channel=40 #hw_mode=g hw_mode=a device_name=RTL8812AU manufacturer=Realtek
You need to change
channelvalue from 40 to 9. And Uncomment
hw_mode=g and comment
# Hardware configuration #driver=rtl871xdrv #driver=nl80211 ieee80211n=1 channel=9 hw_mode=g #hw_mode=a device_name=RTL8812AU manufacturer=Realtek
Finally, don not forget restarting Erle-Brain 2!
If you have an Raspberry Pi 3 and you are using the "frambuesa" OS, you can use the external WiFi instead of internal WiFi (we only offer support for our dongles). For to do that, you need make following changes:
Edit the following file:
And add the following lines:
blacklist brcmfmac blacklist brcmutil
Then restart the Raspberry Pi 3.
The name of the WiFi network is erle-
and change the line
erle-<product>, write down desired name.
And do the same with
wpa_passphrase=holaerle to change the password.
Type the following in Erle-Brain 2 to get root access:
