http://openspot/ will not load to PC

Post by jack814 »

Hi, When attempting to access http://openspot/, the site will not load on my PC and I cannot change settings on my Openspot. Openspot working fine except for this glitch. Any suggestions?

Make sure your openSPOT is connected to the same router as your computer with the Ethernet cable.

Try to find your openSPOT's IP address by looking at your router's DHCP clients list on the router's web interface. If you have the IP address, enter that in your browser.

I entered IP address into browser and still cannot access web interface. Openspot has firmware upgrade
0141 installed and functioned ok for two months after upgrade. Should I do a factory reset at this time?

Make sure you are connected to the same router with your PC as the openSPOT. Also try plugging the openSPOT to another port on your router. Also make sure you are entering the correct IP address.

If it still does not work and you do not want to try doing a factory reset, then you can open the openSPOT's USB serial console and enter the net command to display the current network status of the device. This will show you it's active IP address and configuration.

You can find more information about the USB serial console in the openSPOT's user manual. https://www.sharkrf.com/products/opensp ... cy/manual/
Look for the Serial console section.
