I seem to get on here only when things are not working, Dang, sorry, I do wish I could make a better contribution but… This logon system is being a bear and I don’t know why. Lets see if we can figure it out.
And thank you for your patient input, I will forever be a noob.
First, some notes for clarification purposes:
I - Client mode is configured like this (I guess)
USER INTERFACE DEVICE (laptop, desktop, phone?, etc) <> ROUTER <> SERVERS “SOMEWHERE IN THE SKY” <> ROUTER AGAIN <> PIXELBLAZE
Perhaps that is right?
Anyway my laptop that melted down partly a while back seems to have been hacked… ( I know, I have all the luck, right?) So, what are the security protocols involved here in this configuration, if I might ask?
II - AP Mode is configured like this I’m pretty sure -
UI DEVICE <> PB… OR DOES IT GO THROUGH MY ROUTER? (I know amateur hour questions here)
Are there security questions here, also?
ANYWAY, the laptop I was running last night shut down around 2AM (all sleep modes were turned off) and now won’t do much of anything. I think I was in AP mode, testing stability of operations in that mode. All kinds of funny shenanigans ensued including clicking on desktop icons for news services and voilla, the PB is launched… um …
Running on my backup Chromebook this AM I got things running in Client Mode, then setup AP mode, got a Chrome message about a “data breach”…
So now I’m wondering about security protocols in AP Mode.
As I understand it this is how to hook up in AP Mode with the V3 WiFi tab
- Make up an AP WiFi name and PW… enter them.
As this morning’s final adventure, I can no longer log on to the PB even in client mode. It is “discovered” but I get this message
http://192.168.10.101/ is unreachable.
Well, I hope and expect its something simple because I have a pretty big presentation to give tomorrow using this system. Murphy’s Law I suppose. Think I’ll go take a shower.
