The device is about 10 feet from the AP. Curious that this occurs at precise 2 hour intervals. That doesn't seem like noise or weak signal. Maybe I'll look at the AP settings to see if there is an inactivity setting or something. Though I've never heard of that.
@Alexander-Peace For example... you should repeat the First Time Setup again.
Please go to http://192.168.3.1/setup-wizard/, follow the steps and finally (re)install the Console if you like this wonderful web based stuff.
Some users had to clear the browser's cache too.
Please browse this forum - it has got a nice Search function.
Index of /console/ - probably this is one of the most frequently asked questions.
@György-Farkas i can see that my failure to use the quote aspect of replying does make it difficult, but in the post of yours that i was replying to you had made the comment,
"BTW - I think - this command is more useful here
opkg list-installed | grep -i console"
and my response to that was,
meaning that it is certainly a possibility, but not a foregone conclusion. so, yep, even though i think the quote functions cause quite a bit of for the most part, unnecessary additional content i can see that i should be making my posts more clear. thanks and sorry for the lack of clarity on my part.
@ZwiebelMax you can either enter wifisetup in the terminal, or if you can get to console select wifi settings. but, since you say you can surf using omega2 that should mean that omega2 has internet access, but the time doesn't update, not sure what to try unless you can try updating time via terminal.
Thanks for the info. I haven't paid too much attention to it since I'm chasing other fun related to getting Python3 running (etc.) . But, the original "correct" name showed up later (seeing it in my list of wifi access points). It may have been after I restarted the wifi on my computer. Not sure. I will check out the hostname and see what it says.
I've got an environment setup on a io board , that I would like to switch the linux console port from ttyS0 to ttyS1. I wasn't sure if that is done in /etc/inittab or in one of the system config files ?
I have an omega2.
I'm not sure how Oninon's kernel does it, but in Mediatek's, Linux detects which UART U-Boot activated and uses that.
You could override this in the kernel if building it from source - I had to as I turned on a second one in a custom U-Boot, and Linux was then not using the one I wanted.
Resolved with wifisetup
Connected to PuTTy via USB and did wifisetup
Everything is back to normal, except for DNS issues.
It does not recognize omega-xxxx.local. I have to enter IP addresses. I can live with that for now.
