I thought I would try a different approach and connect a normal Raspberry Pi with the standard operating system to the Ethernet cable attached to my farmbot.
I first set it up in my office and I was able to ping pool.ntp.org successfully. I then took it out to my farmbot and was also able to ping it there but the two IP addresses were totally different.
I just want to check with you to make sure that the following address in the screenshot is the one it should be trying to access ( I had to photoshop it as it is in full sun there). The .static.tpgi.com.au is something that wasn’t on it when I tried in my office and the numbers are totally different as well.
The network switch is located in a house that my school acquired and whilst the IT guys don’t think its any different, they are somewhat confused as to why the address would be so different.
Don’t know why this would be an issue as my farmbot was working previously on the same ethernet cable / port but who knows, there could be something in it.
