Updated gateway now connection problems
« on: June 19, 2017, 08:19:45 pm »
I just updated the gateway to v0.9 (both host and app) and now the gateway will not connect via wifi (it was prior to the update). It will, however work over ethernet.

It's been a pretty frustrating experience between Losant not functioning and now this...

Have you been connecting to WIFI using WPS? If so, please try that again.

You can also enter your SSID and password into the gateway configuration when connected via Ethernet. This way, your gateway will always connect to your WIFI network.

This YouTube video should help you out too

Thanks again for your reply. I was using SSID and that was working fine. After the update I was only able to connect using WPS. The SSID did not work.

After entering the SSID and password, make sure you power cycle the gateway so that those changes take affect.

Can you try this and let us know?
Thanks

Can you please let me know what power cycling the gateway means?
I am able to connect gateway using WPS and I have entered SSID and password. How can I reconfigure the gateway if I want to change SSID and password?

Hi lukevikas,

Answers:

1) Power cycling - This is just either pressing the reset button the gateway OR unplugging the gateway from power and then plugging it back in. Basically, you are resetting the gateway.

2) Re-Configuring - You can enter the SSID within the gateway configuration in mcStudio. If you want to change the confifguration, you can connect via WPS and then go and enter the SSID OR connect with ethernet and then change the SSID for your WIFI. Check out this video to help:
