    Intel Edison WAN access - Network Unreachable

    Bill.

      Hi,

       

      This is a repeat of a reply I made on the 9th to this discussion:

      Re: Intel Edison WAN access - Network Unreachable

       

      It did not seem to appear at or near the top of :

      Intel® Edison

       

      Maybe it got lost, so I am  reposting my reply.

      Hi,

       

      My version of Edison/Yocto is:  201603141535  (hmmm Pi Day

       

      When I ping elsewhere I get network unreachable.

       

      netstat -rn

       

              Kernel IP routing table

              Destination    Gateway        Genmask        Flags  MSS Window  irtt Iface

              192.168.2.0    0.0.0.0        255.255.255.0  U        0 0          0 usb0

              192.168.42.0    0.0.0.0        255.255.255.0  U        0 0          0 wlan0

       

      No 0.0.0.0 for the Gateway.

       

      Question: should do the following:  route add default gw 192.168.42.0 wlan0

       

      Regards,

      Bill

          Hi Bill,

          Thank you for reaching out! Let me try to help you with this issue.
          First, I would like to know if you need to use the image you’re currently using or if you are able to update to the latest image. In case you have no problem with that, here’s the link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads.
          Now regarding the issue:

          1. Did you connect to your WiFi network successfully?
          2. Did you make sure to connect your Edison to the same network of your host computer?
          3. I’m still a bit unsure about your last statement, the one about the command route add default gw 192.168.42.0 wlan0. Did you try to add this at some point? What results did you get?
          We’ll be waiting for your reply.

          Kind regards,
          -Pablo

            Hi Pablo,

             

            Good News!

             

            Executing configure_edison --wifi solved the problem. I thought I had done this last spring.

             

            Now I have good netstat -rn output. Edison can ping the router and the PC host and the PC host can ping edison.

             

             

            Regarding: do I need the current image?

             

            I don't need it. I am in experiment mode trying various things. WiFi was next on my list. I could update to the current image but I am afraid something will go wrong and then I'll spend time dealing with that.

             

            Regarding: your other questions.

             

            No need to answer those questions. Especially about the 192.168.42.0 wlan0 in the route command. That was absolutely stupid on my part.

             

            This was not a good use of your time.

             

            Embarrassed,

            Bill
