yes - just had exactly the same problem. would be best if this were fixed - it’s not exactly intuitive. and as others have mentioned, that option is perfectly valid and necessary in some situations.
Please don’t use old threads. While your problem may be reporting similar results, you are likely doing something different. Please start a new thread. Please explain:
- what you are trying to do?
- what you have tried.
- what is not working as expected.
In the meantime, the issue you have is very common. It can be truthfully said that working with the Arduino Yun can be a challenge and at times frustrating. In the meantime, Please read and follow this canned answer. Also, if the following canned answer solves your issue, please follow up on this thread.
= [Q:] I cannot connect to My Arduino Yún. What do I do? =
First it’s good to know, when Arduino Yun cannot find the AP you have set it for (like your home wifi), it has a script that puts it back into default SSID and AP mode.
Next, you may have already watched this video, but it’s worth watching again. Pay extra attention to the part with the sketches.
Getting started with Arduino Yún - tutorial (6:53)
Then, read the short instructions immediately below. We (the volunteer support group) already know these steps by heart, so be familiar with the different reboot methods, and especially the 30+ second wifi reset. Also, not mentioned on that page, if you reset the Wifi/Linux part of the Yun, it will take from 2-8 minutes for the reboot. Lastly on this part, YOU MUST WAIT for the Linux portion to fully boot BEFORE YOU PRESS ANY of the RESET buttons.
Resetting the processors (AR9331, WiFi, and 32U4)
Then start over, plug your Yun into the USB port, run this sketch, and hit the ‘‘Wifi Reset button’’ (for 5-10 seconds).
The YunSerialTerminal provides a simplified console access to the Linux part of the Yun. It works via the USB port (the one that powers the Yun - the microUSB). From there you’ll be able to run a few commands to give us a better idea of problems.
Also, be ready with this sketch YunWiFiStatus. This sketch will help us see the status of your home AP. The sketch prints the wifi status to the console every 5 seconds or so. This sketch might seem familiar as it was in that first video link (above).
Let us know how it goes.
