First boot, can't find access point...



  • Just got the omega, slapped it on the expansion dock, waited for the omega led to stop blinking.... and can't find the access point with any of my machines. Did a full SSID scan, can't find it. Anyone have this issue when they first got theirs?

    @Erik-Leisch Have you tried connecting to the Omega via the serial terminal?



  • @Lazar-Demin Thanks for the reply! Yes, I' connected via serial and I've looked at the wireless config file. Everything seems to be in order:

    config wifi-device 'radio0'
    option type 'mac80211'
    option hwmode '11g'
    option path 'platform/ar933x_wmac'
    option htmode 'HT20'
    option disabled '0'
    option channel '11'
    option txpower '30'
    option country 'US'

    config wifi-iface
    option device 'radio0'
    option network 'wlan'
    option mode 'ap'
    option encryption 'psk2'
    option ssid 'omega-test-server'
    option key 'onioneer'

    Doesn't broadcast the ap. Also, when I scan for SSIDs via the wifisetup tool, it says no networks detected and if I try and connect to my router, the omega crashes and reboots. I'm on firmware 0.0.1 but can't get an internet connection to update.



  • Also, if I run wifi in terminal, I get the following:

    [ 132.770000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0-1: link is not ready
    [ 133.590000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

    and it hangs, I have to ctl+c to exit

    @Erik-Leisch Usually when the link is not ready message shows up, there's an issue with the configuration of the wireless networks.

    Can you try doing a factory restore to bring back the default wifi settings and trying again?



  • @Lazar-Demin just did the factory restart. It is currently hung at the following during boot:

    [ 31.220000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
    [ 31.320000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready
    [ 59.070000] random: nonblocking pool is initialized


  • administrators

    @Erik-Leisch it's not hung, you just need to press Enter to activate the terminal!



  • @Lazar-Demin ;) ahh.



  • still not seeing the ap broadcast



  • Also, trying to connect to a network produces the following:

  • administrators

    @Erik-Leisch Ok I see the issue now... Attempting to connect to a wireless network unsuccessfully will disable the AP network!

    Can you run ifconfigand post the output?



  • Even right after a factory reset though, the ap is not broadcasting. Here is the ifconfig output:

    Yes i got a similar problem. I had to change the ID from my Home WIFi. It was on ID13 and I had to lower to ID9. Otherwise i could not see the Wifi from my home. Just the neighbors WIFI appeared.

    With my smartphone and a Wifi Analyzer i could localize the ID's and changed them in the WIFI settings on the router.

    As mentioned from @Lazar-Demin without WiFi connection the AP (of Omega) is deactivated and not appears.



  • @Luciano-S. thanks for the reply! I can't even scan for wireless networks. Each time I do, it returns "no wireless networks found, try again later..." Any thoughts?

    Did you understand what i wrote? From point of view of the Omega i could also not see my network. Till i found out, that my network uses a frequency where the Omega not can catch the signal (ID higher 9).

    I had to change this on my wifi router! Just after that i could see a network.

    What is your WiFi routers brand/model? Are you still using the manufacturers firmware?



  • @Luciano-S. yes, the problem is there are 20+ wireless networks in range of the omega. If the omega can't find a single SSID, there has got to be a different problem.



  • Sounds very strange. What channel does the Onion Omega AP use? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels ..

    That's the only thing I can see. If Onion Omega Wi-fi uses a channel your router don't check.

    EDIT: And if there are only 5GHZ wi-fi networks around you, your Onion Omega will probably not detect those. But it's very rare that everyone is on the 5GHZ range hehe. And if your router is on the 5GHZ range, I don't know if it can find the 2.4GHZ ones. This is stuff that probably can be googled.

    Thinking of it.. is your wi-fi router on the 5GHZ range?

    EDIT2: Some errors here, this is stuff I don't know too much about. Of course when you scan with your PC it is your wifi-chip that does the job.. :)

    As @Lazar-Demin said, no wifi no AP!

    What happens when you connect via serial and type in wifi then wifisetup? Does your wifi then still get no connection?



  • @Luciano-S. Yes, correct. When connected over serial, I have done the following with the respective results:

    1. action: wifisetup > selection 1 (scan for wifi networks)
      result: ERROR: no networks detected... try again in a little while

    2. action: wifisetup > selection 2 (type network info)
      result:

    [ 325.520000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0-1: link is not ready
    [ 325.790000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready

    root@Omega-220D:/# [ 364.680000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
    [ 364.750000] IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready

    1. action: edited wireless config file (located at /etc/config/wireless) to try and broadcast AP
      result: no AP broadcast

    Maybe I have defective hardware?
