I am new to Arduino and just bought a Yun for a project.  I'm an electrical engineer, retired, and have had a lot of experience with micros going back to the "old days" of the Z80, etc. I understand micros at the circuit level and assembly language level, but  I'm new to WiFi and this much more complex programming environment and need some help getting connected to my Yun.

If I understand correctly the Yun is ready to go for WiFi as long as I initialize the WiFi portion of it properly at both my laptop and the Yun.  I can't detect the Yun yet via WiFi from my laptop so presume it needs initializing.  I have downloaded programs to the 32U4, that went smoothly.  But the WiFi baffles me, I have no idea where to start.  SSID? OpenWrt-Yun?  

The Getting started instructions say "When you first power on the Yún, it will create a WiFi network called ArduinoYun-XXXXXXXXXXXX. Connect your computer to this network.  Once you've obtained an IP address, open a web browser, and enter http://arduino.local or 192.168.240.1 in the address bar. After a few moments, a web page will appear asking for a password. Enter "arduino" and click the Log In button. "

I have no idea how to connect my computer to that network.  It does not show up on my laptops network options, only my existing MiFi unit does where I get my internet from (see * below).

My project involves creating a central control station on a notepad or laptop that will communicate with up to 20 or so remote devices on WiFi, all Yun's of course.  I will need to be able to send commands from the controller to each remote device and receive data back from each station, all over WiFi.   Does each Yun have a unique WiFi identifier already programmed in?  

Any help would be appreciated.

* Since posting this I have found that my laptop recognizes that the Yun is out there on WiFi and gives me an Arduino Yun - XXXXXXXX  to connect to, but it won't connect.  And I have no idea how to obtain an IP.   Thanks for any help you can give.

If I get it correctly, your computer see the "Arduino Yun-ABC" wifi but cannot connect to it? Can you tell if the signal is good? Which operating system are you using?

Farmboy

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, I am getting the Arduino-yun-xxxxxxxxx when I click on my WiFi networks icon, along with my Verizon MiFi4510L WiFi connection for internet. 

The signal is excellent if the bar graph is any judge, full bars.  The Yun is sitting right next to my laptop and MiFi device.

I'm using Windows 8.0.  Mozilla Firefox for this forum, Internet Explorer otherwise.

My MiFi of course works fine, but when I click on Arduino Yun it tells me it can't connect.

The getting started guide doesn't help, goes right over my head, so I'm at a loss.

Thanks,

Dean

Getting started won't suffice, we need to troubleshoot this
Can you upload YunSerialTerminal, open serial monitor, press YUN RST, let linux print things for a couple of minutes (I'd say 5 at least) then copy and paste the whole output here?

Farmboy

Thanks!  I did get SerialMonitor uploaded and got a response after I held the reset button for almost a minute.  Looks like gibberish to me.  However, when I try to copy it to this Forum it won't copy.  I get a small subset of what I've copied.  The stuff below is the subset.  Very bizarre.

The 5 minutes of output was about a page long.

Could be way off base here, but have you installed Bonjour if you're using Windows or Linux?

Technically Bonjour would just help you see it, but I though it'd be worth a check.

Farmboy

Okay, this is better.  I shut down all my open webpages and pulled the MicorUSB cable to cycle the Yun power and started over with SerialMonitor and here's what I got, and without pushing the Yun WiFi Reset button.  After the initial message I sent Enter and got a bit more, and then I sent Help and got a bit more.

I'm still not sure what's going on.

Any idea what's wrong?

Do I need to upgrade the Yun OpenWRT Image?  But I can't do that because this doesn't seem to connect - see below.

"Make sure the Yún and your computer are on the same network, and open a browser. Connect to the Yún's web panel page by entering the IP address or the name you gave to the board in the browser. With the default name you reach the Yún at http://arduino.local. "

This is really frustrating.  Am I the only one with this kind of problem?

This is a very simple view of it all (at least, this is the way I did it) - when your Yun has booted for the first time (and it has booted, because you saw that large 'Linino' logo), it has created its own network. From your MS Windows box you should see it in a list of available networks. Click it and make your box connect to it; next point your browser to the url http://192.168.240.1; can you make it that far?

kind regards,

Thanks for jumping in Jos!  I appreciate the help.

I get the Arduino Yun-XXXXXXXX in my list of available networks along with my MiFi internet network.  The MiFi connects when I tell it to.  The Arduino Yun does not connect.  I can't get any farther than that.   

Could this have something to do with my Kaspersky virus protection?  I saw something about making sure that port 5353 wasn't blocked.  I looked in Kaspersky and all I could find was a list of Active ports, 5353 not listed, so added 5353 and made it active.  Not sure if that is the same thing as making sure it's not blocked.  It didn't seem to help.  How do I make sure 5353 isn't blocked?

Thanks,

I don't know anything about Kaspersky but I do know that I only trust that stuff as far as I can throw a rock at it; can you (temporalily) switch that thing off and see what happens? (you won't be swamped with viruses and spam all of a sudden because you also have a firewall in your router ;-)

kind regards,

My MiFi does have a network security key, could that be the problem?  It's WPA2-PSK. The Network type is 802.11g, what is a Yun?  I thought it was g also.

Thanks Jos.  I turned of Kaspersky but it didn't help.  I'll also try restarting with it off.
