Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

I think I have figured it out, I just need to make sure that tethering is turned on as the tablet is going to tether TO the Pi-Star device. I think that it was automatically connecting when it did not find and RF path, for whatever reason. Now I just need to turn on tethering when I plug the tablet ...

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

By way the IP address the tablet picks up is 192.168.50.x so it is being assigned
by the Pi-Star device just as though it was over WiFi.

Re: Tether tablet to MMDVM NOT MMDVM to tablet

Has anyone given this thought? I have a tablet I would like to connect to the MMDVM board in this manner, but as I pointed out in the original post it does not always work. I am not sure why.
