So I recently purchased an Omega2+ and the serial expansion dock. It's slick. I like it in principle...
I connected it to a Linux box and followed the set up guide. To my surprise, after running the wifi setup, it didn't connect. After checking /etc/config/wireless and checking the auth settings for my switch, everything appeared fine, with the exception of a connection.
I'm currently using WPA2-AES encryption and my wireless network mode is set to auto for N, G, B etc... and its using 802.11n. I'm not planning on making a switch to TKIP any time soon because it's no longer the mid 2000's and it's well after 2012 when the standard was deprecated.
From what I understand the Omega2+ really struggles to connect with those perimeters.
I should also note that the password for my switch (router) uses % and =
From what I've read this could also be an issue...in 2017...hmmm
So my question is: Is there a plan to fix these issues without users spending hours trouble shooting?
To be clear, I have no issue messing around with this stuff. It's fun.
But the out of the box experience leaves a lot to be desired.
In order to have a tool to mess around with, you need a reliable way to connect to the net. That's the reason I bought the thing. I really didn't expect that connecting to the internet would be the first project...
Anyways, I think you guys/gals are great. I'm even happier your a Canadian company.
Thanks for doing what you're doing.
