Re: Dashboard connection drop

If your hotspot is losing connectivity after running for awhile, one thing to check is whether WiFi Power Save is on:

Code: Select all

iw wlan0 get power_save
If it is on, see the post in the Pi-Star User Forum by Albert, AF4FA, for some helpful suggestions:

Re: DMR Gateway broken in 4.1

please give more information. If you're using BrandMeister, enabling Hotspot Security in the DMR Configuration section is really important (and it's a somewhat recent change by BrandMeister, so it's still tripping people up).

Re: Newbie: DVMEGA Dualband receive question

Hi Rocky,

When you transmit, have you noticed in the Pi-Star dashboard whether your BER is above 1%? If it is, you might need to adjust your RXOffset, which is pretty commonly needed with some radio/modem boards and DMR radios:

Re: uSD won't boot Jspot

I think it's possible to duplicate a card, but I'm not sure of the correct method when doing so for a Raspbian-based card on a Windows computer. However, there's an alternative method that's really easy: In Pi-Star, create a backup of your configuration. Use the Backup/Restore link in the menu bar. ...
