Openspot3 does not connect to iphone

Post by Harald »

I have set up two wifi connections. My home wifi and my share wifi on my iphone.
The first one works fine, but as i move away from my home the os3 will not connect to the shared iphone wifi. Has anyone found a solution to this problem?

Here's a quick tip on setting up the OS3 both for home and phone Wi-Fi connections:

Go to the Network page, Wireless settings section on the OS3 web interface. Make sure Advanced mode is turned on (there's a checkbox for that at the bottom right of the web interface). Set your home Wi-Fi as SSID #1 (and key) and your phone's Wi-Fi as SSID #2 (and key). If your home Wi-Fi (SSID #1) is not reachable then the openSPOT3 will automatically try to connect to your phone's Wi-Fi (SSID #2).

Make sure you enter passwords case sensitive.

If you use an iPhone then:

- Make sure you use the Save button at the Wireless scan list to save the iPhone's Wi-Fi network to SSID #2 as it contains a special apostrophe character which you can't enter using your keyboard
- Make sure you keep the iPhone's Wi-Fi hotspot settings page open while doing a wireless scan on the openSPOT3, because the iPhone only broadcasts it's Wi-Fi network name if that page is kept open on the phone

Make sure your home Wi-Fi network is out of range, otherwise the OS3 will stay connected to it.

I have gone over the Network setup again, mooved far away frm my home wifi, but the os3 will not find the wifi on my iphone. I have tried to to reset both iphone and os3. I have automatisk update on the os3 so it should be on the latest sw.
The reason Why i bought the os3 was that i could move away from home and power.
Please advice!

Try placing your iPhone's SSID and key in SSID slot #1 and your home Wi-Fi in SSID#2.
