UPDATE: I am now able to access the Onion's browser interface (I apparently had to go through the set up again .. only I skipped the Wifi configuration part this time). Also -- I am now able to access the SD card.
SIDE NOTE: I wish there was some indication that software is installing in the background when I choose to install the console during the setup wizard. The installation takes a while and it'd be nice if the LED on the onion would blink in a specific pattern or something so I know something is happening.
However .. these problems still remain:
I am only able to connect to the device via SSH when I am connected to the Onion's Wifi hotstpot.
I am only able to access the onion's browser interface when I'm connected to the Onion's Wifi hotstpot.
I use to be able to access the Onion's web interface using it's unique hostname (ie: http://omega-XXXX.local/) .. but I now no longer able to do that (regardless as to whether or not I'm connected to the Onion's Wifi hostpot). And yes .. I do have the Bonjour service installed and running (I'm on a Windows 10 PC).
Any idea as to why I'm no longer able to access the Onion while connected to my home's Wifi network? I've been trying to using both the hostname and the IP address and it never resolves.
Btw -- I've confirmed that my Arris Wifi Router is using the expected WPA2-PSK (AES) encryption.Yvan
