Wifi Info lost

Post by WT3R »

I have now set up my Zumspot 3 times and the wifi info created from the pi-star site keeps getting deleted. Every time I try and start up the hot spot it does not connect to internet, unable to connect to it, also the zumspot wifi does not show up either.

Another issue is the P25 network never seems to connect. I could connect to it, shows me connecting to it only.

If you mean that the wpa_supplicant.conf file that you copied to the /boot partition keeps getting deleted, well that is how it is supposed to work.

It moves that file to the OS partition where it is needed. Once that is done it doesn't need it anymore so it gets removed and any settings just get read from the OS partition for future bootings.

Is your wifi hidden, or some outdated/bad security choice like WEP?
If someones previous actions are any indication of their future actions, then I predict the deletion and removal of access will happen at any moment. 7-11-2020.

OK. That is why it disappears. No it is the current standard. It is viewable, etc etc. I have it up stairs on a shelf, maybe 9ft from router through a wall. Great signal position. When I had it at computer working on it, I could connect to it on Firefox and work from within the settings. Now that I moved it, nothing, nadda. I don't even see the WiFi it would create if it wasn't connected to anything. Also, when I was able to get into config the P25 Network I think is what it was called was never green. Everything else was, I was never able to get the parrot working either, still no joy. I had this thing running before on an older OS, haven't used in a while. I am at a loss.

With it running, I do see the P25 indicator light up, never see a light when it should be transmitting however.

I don't have any experience with P25.

From the looks of the pictures, it isn't connecting to a P25 server correctly. (P25 net is red and it says Service not started in the p25 network area a bit lower) Check the logs and see what they say.

Whens the last time you did an update and upgrade?

Also, I would suggest updating the firmware of the ZumSpot, 1.3.3 is from Feb 2018.

Thank-you, It has been a while since I have ran this thing. The update was likely the culprit. Thanks again.
