Re: WIFI Configuration

If you are having trouble connecting to your WiFi in the house and the hotspot in the car, it may be easier to build a file to drop on the SD card. You can do so here.

Re: Pi-Star not connecting to Talk Groups

I think you'll find the v4 to be worthy of the upgrade. Whether staying on Brandmeister or going to TGIF, you have to get to the configuration page. From the Dashboard, go to the Configuration "tab" and log in. Unless you have changed the defaults, user is "pi-star" and password is "raspberry" and t...

Re: Pi-Star not connecting to Talk Groups

I have an MD-UV380 too. Perhaps these notes -- http://w2xq.com/bm-ar-dmr.html#uv380-notes -- may be of assistance. It is a bit difficult to diagnose your failure to connect to talkgroups. Some ideas. 1. Change your DMR Master to a different server. I opted to go offshore to a European server as the ...

Re: Can't get back to dashboard from laptop

I had a somewhat similar problem. See https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star-n ... #watchdogs and add a Reboot command. Also see http://w2xq.com/bm-ar-dmr.html#remote for a additional note. Hope this works for you. It works well for me; no more having to power off the hotspot.

Re: PC not seeing my Hotspot

See KE0FHS' https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star-updates.htm#upgrading4 for a step-by-step how to move from v3 to v4. Then from the Dashboard > Configuration > Expert and do the upgrade and update as described above. I found the most consuming time was downloading the v4 image, then the rest of the...

Re: Weird dashboard connectivity problem

Belatedly, the default file name is Pi-Star_Config_23-Apr-2019.zip. You'll have to use wild cards for date and month. HTH.

Re: Pi-Star Remote

If implementing the Pi-Star Remote commands on your radio for use with your hotspot, KE0FHS has a good explanation here -- https://amateurradionotes.com/pi-star-notes.htm#watchdogs -- on how to set up the reboot and other commands. However, for my TYT MD-UV380 and probably other radios, there is one...

Re: Running update/upgrade on Ver4 RC3 stops system

Fran, do you need SSH? Configuration>Update doesn't work for you? The overnight updates are working; the current date is 20190402. HTH a bit.

Re: IP address not showing

Just for giggles and grins, turning on your phone's WiFi and using a phone app such as Fing you cannot see the devices on your network? (On my network, the hotspot is identified as "Raspberry Pi".) I also am just wondering if you might be connecting to a neighbor's WiFi? In some developments I can s...
