I’ve had a fairly well working farmbot genesis 1.3 which only occasionally had issues with wifi connection.
I messed around with the wifi position over the last few days and changed the names of the APs to distinguish them which I then returned to their original names. I expected farmbot to reset and give me the usual farmbot ap from which to configure it from but this didn’t occur.
I have since tried different versions of farmbot OS (9.1.2, 10, latest one) to no avail,
I’ve changed the SD card to another one - still the same
I’ve checked the LEDs on the rasp pi 3 - only odd thing is that there is no red one lit but the green one does the usual expected blinking when starting up (I don’t think the red led ever worked - fwiw, it’s connected the arduino which is connected to mains power so I’d be surprised if it’s a power issue). I would assume if there wasn’t enough power to run then the green light wouldn’t be doing its intermittent flashing.
This is on a farmbot that has worked with no (major) issues for the last few months since I built it during lockdown.
Next steps I guess would be ethernet which I can do but I think I’ll have to create a special ssh login?
I tried to get something up on 192.168.25.1 but nil worked (my network is 192.168.1.1)
Any pointers would be great!
Thanks in advance
