|Re: [agail-dev] Setting up a resin hotspot on RPi|
(Hope you’re well, and,) This is in response to your AGAIL-DEV list query.
First things first, is the device you’re using an RPi 3? If so, RPi3 defaults to wlan0, not wlan1 — just make sure you’re using the correct one. You can run ifconfig on the device host container and it'll show list of interfaces.
Also, I went through the instructions and perhaps they can be a bit more obvious — especially when it comes to the directory structure. We will look to fix this.
From the documentation, it should be noted that you will not see a new file created in resin-boot/system-connections because there isn't a two way binding.
The way it works is that on device boot, the files in resin-boot/system-connections are copied into /mnt/state/root-overlay/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections without removing any files from the destination.
That directory is then bind mounted to /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections in the root filesystem on the Host.
So, basically, delete your existing resin-wifi-1 file in /mnt/boot/system-connections and in /mnt/state/root-overlay/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/
Your resin-hotspot files should then look like:
Reboot, and with: nmcli c up resin-hotspotYou should have your WiFi hotspot up.
Hope this helps,
