Re: Pi-3B+ Not locking in selected Mode w/ v4.0 RC3

A couple possibilities: Incorrect radio/modem selected, for example, a simplex radio/modem is selected but the hardware is duplex (or vice versa), or simply a mismatch. Verify your Radio/Modem Type selected in the General Configuration settings. Firmware corrupted, very out of date, or the incorrect...

Re: Can't get to dashboard

And did you then tell your host to connect to THAT access point (and not your regular WiFi router)? You will NOT have INTERNET connectivity during this connection. That's a really important point. Good eye, thanks for catching that, Dennis! When you're using Auto AP, you're creating a new wireless ...

Re: pi-star update

I have managed to update to 4.0.0-RC4 today without difficulty. I don't know whether there was any change but it has now worked. Glad things worked out. Similar experiences happen to me all the time. So much so, that when I've been fighting with a problem for awhile, one of my own troubleshooting s...

Re: Can't get to dashboard

Very strange. The only thing I can think of is that some radio/modem boards require the WPA or WPA2 security standard, and won't work with WEP. You might also try an IP scanner app. There's one for Windows called https://www.advanced-ip-scanner.com/. Then you can try connecting via the IP address. B...

Re: Can't get to dashboard

Alright, so I did understand the issue you're having. Take a look at this and see if it helps you understand how to use Auto AP in order to configure your wireless network in Pi-Star:

Re: Can't get to dashboard

Not many details to go on, but here's a guess. The first time you boot up a Pi-Star hotspot that is running on a Raspberry Pi 3B, Zero W, 3B+, or 3A+, Pi-Star will go into Auto AP mode after a few minutes (this would also happen if you changed the password for your wireless network, invalidating a p...

Re: Default Reflector Setting

Just a quick additional note. The reflector1 and atStartup1 settings reflect what you have set up on the main Pi-Star Configuration page, in the D-Star Configuration section > Default Reflector. So the only thing you need to set up using the Expert Editor on the ircDDBGateway tab is reconnect1, as p...

Re: DVMEGA or Zumspot?

I've got both those boards (and several others; for some basic overviews, see: https://amateurradionotes.com/hotspots.htm#thehotspots). They are both good boards. If I had to choose just one, I'd go with the ZUMspot for these reasons: It's a dependable, high-quality board designed by Jim, KI6ZUM, wh...

Re: European date / time-format on Nextion display (24-Hour time)

As far as I know, the locale affects the date format, for example, DD/MM/YYYY vs MM/DD/YYYY. The 24-hour time format is used in the U.S. as much as anywhere else (try making an afternoon/evening appointment with someone who is or has recently been serving in the military). You might want to take a l...

Re: YSF Reflector List format - "Not Linked"

I'm pretty sure it's in the /usr/local/etc folder. That's where all the other hosts files I've looked at are located.
