hello , i just got my arduino yun and Arduino yun is not creating wi-fi network . I have installed bonjour and enabled 5353 . My computer doesnt have wi fi on it , is it the reason behind it?
I'm not sure I got it. Your computer does not have a wifi interface? If so, how can you say that the yun is not creating the wifi network?
Try uploading the Yunserialterminal sketch through USB. Open the serial monitor, make sure the line ending box at the bottom is set to newline, press enter.
You should get a linux prompt and ifconfig should show you something similar to this:
root@Arduino:~# ifconfig eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:A2:DA:F9:04:27 UP BROADCAST MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:0 (0.0 B) Interrupt:4 lo Link encap:Local Loopback inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0 UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:16436 Metric:1 RX packets:16 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:16 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 RX bytes:1648 (1.6 KiB) TX bytes:1648 (1.6 KiB) wlan0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 90:A2:DA:F1:04:27 inet addr:192.168.2.204 Bcast:192.168.2.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1 RX packets:274544 errors:0 dropped:1455 overruns:0 frame:0 TX packets:9026 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 RX bytes:67304805 (64.1 MiB) TX bytes:868262 (847.9 KiB)
In the wlan0 section you should see the ipaddress of the AP which will be 192.168.240.1 In the example above my Yun is attached to my wifi and got a address of 192.168.2.204 from the dhcp server.
And as Federico says if your computer doesn't have wifi you won't be able to see it from there. Maybe see if it is there with a smartphone or tablet?
Thank you members , i was under the impression that without having wi fi interface , my computer would still identify yun network. Got it now :)
I haven't confirmed this but I believe if you plug a cable from the ethernet port to your router you will see the arduino.local hostname. The example I posted earlier should show you the address the router gave the yun in the eth1 section.
