Complete noob here and I think I have done something wrong. I followed the post on Falcon Christmas on running FPP on BBB eMMC. When I try to access thru http://fpp I get "This site cant be reached

fpps server DNS address could not be found."

I have a blue blinking light on BBB. I have an ethernet cable going from BBB to computer. Also have had it connected to my router. I have had a wi fi dongle in. I have a solid green and solid orange light under the ethernet connection. Was I supposed to install a Debian image first? Kind of completely lost here. Thank you for any help.

Connect to the router and restart. Try using FPP/

Nothing happened. When I go into control panel on my laptop under "Network" it shows FPP. When I click on it another folder opens. When I go into a browser it says not available.

Finally got it to show up. Now how can I get it to show without the ethernet cable attached by using the wi fi dongle?

look at your other thread .. .. .. Wi fi dongle


start FPP hardwired
goto network
Select wan0
set SSJID & Password

Is the startup of this kind of buggy? It's not showing up again. I have it hard wired right now.

I had similar issues until I mounted the Dongle away from the HDMI port. Do you have a USB extension cable. try using it on the dongle - 3 feet is good

Getting the interface to come up hard wired. Selected wan0, now the dumb question. What do I put in for the SSID and password. Do I put in my home network SSID and PW or create one?

First - no question is dumb.

Yes, your home SSJID & Password. You need that to talk to your router...or for your router to talk to the FPP WiFi.

Keep working it....we'll get you there

I use chrome to connect to the web browser.

mrGrumpy
08-15-2016, 12:29 AM
Oh, one important fact..... Do not to use Internet Explorer. It doesn't work well, if at all, with FPP. FoxFire, Chrome, Safari, MS Edge all work well

ametsman
08-15-2016, 10:25 AM
I usually use chrome. Haven't been able to get back at it, have been gone. Will try it after work tonight. Thanks for all your help so far.

This is where I get confused I guess. When I have the ethernet cable and dongle connected I get this.33263
I choose wLan0 and get this.33261

When I put in my SSID and password it says saved. When I unplug the ethernet cable and restart it won't connect via wifi.

Sorry, cannot see attachments - try reloading

If they say attachment, the file is not attached.

Do they show up now?

mrGrumpy

You save with UPDATE INTERFACE.
It will display a restart something - do that.

"SAVE" on that page is for the DNS Settings which you don't need to change.

I do all that but when I disconnect the ethernet cable still no connection. If I go into my network on the computer control panel FPP shows up when wired but not when wireless.33270

Error restarting FPPD is beyond me....I guess, try rebooting.

To see if you are connected, go to Status/Control tab, SELECT MultiSync, and see if you are listed there. You should have both IP addresses listed. If
wlan0 isn't shown, go back and relook at your settings in the NETWORK.

Cap and Small case make a big difference. or Typo's ???
Hopping it's this simple.

Thanks for all your help. I still can't get it to work. I'm gonna use it wired for now and get away from it for a few days. It has me ticked off. I have this set up http://doityourselfchristmas.com/forums/showthread.php?43647-Expo-2x2-P10-Matrix-Sequence so want to try this out.

Amentsman, what brand of dongle do you have. I have had problems with many til I got an EDIMAX. If you are not using this brand, I suggest the next step is to buy one.

EDIMAX doesn't need drivers

ametsman
08-15-2016, 08:04 PM
It's a D-Link Wireless N-150 Mbps USB Wi-Fi Network Adapter (DWA-121)

mrGrumpy
08-15-2016, 09:10 PM
That's likely the problem. FPP doesn't have those drivers loaded.
Maybe one of the FPP team can address this

CaptainMurdoch
08-15-2016, 10:20 PM
The driver should auto load if it is supported but the BBB image is running an older Linux kernel so it may not have drivers for newer wifi modules. The Pi image is running a newer kernel which supports more modules.

If you go to the Troubleshooting Commands page and grab the "lsusb" section and paste it here we may be able to determine if it is supported on the BBB image.

EDIT: If wlan0 is listed in the UI then a module is being loaded but it may just be an old buggy version in the kernel on the BBB image.

I have never got my dlink wifi dongle to work on the Pi. I just put it away for PC use.

CaptainMurdoch

That uses the same module as the Edimax which is fairly new but may not be new enough as Jim mentioned issues with his. The Pi has a newer kernel/module so if it doesn't work there it probably won't work on the BBB.

Had a Dlink wi fi dongle plugged into a usb extension cable and it wouldn't show up in FPP. So I got a Edimax and plugged it in. It doesn't show up either. The only network I have is eth0.

ametsman

Reinstalled BBB with the dongle attached. Now it shows in the network settings. Chose it, put in ssid and password. As long as the ethernet cable is connected the wlan0 shows. If I disconnect the ethernet cable then I can't open FPP in a web browser.

I needed to put my dongle on a USB extension cable. I'm told the HDMI port interferes with the WiFi
Since I added cable WiFi has been 100%

It sounds like you may be trying to put both the wired and wireless on the same subnet which isn't supported in the current FPP version. It causes routing issues on the Pi and the packets go out the wrong interface sometimes.

ametsman

It is connected with an extension cable.

Reconnect using your Ethernet cable. Go to multisync tap and write down both ip's. One will be cable and the other wifi. Pull Ethernet cable and try accessing using one address then if not connecting, use the other.
