Been working on this for several days now, have viewed all the relevant threads on Balena Discourse and scoured Google for a NetworkManager solution that works.
I’m leveraging a Raspberry Pi 3B+ with balenaOS 2.47.0+rev1.
I create a file, balena-hotspot, and mount the file into the /system-connections/ directory. The files contents are as follows:
[connection] id=balena-hotspot uuid=36060c57-aebd-4ccf-aba4-ef75121b5f77 type=wifi autoconnect=false interface-name=wlan0 permissions= secondaries= [wifi] band=bg mac-address-blacklist= mac-address-randomization=0 mode=ap seen-bssids= ssid=PLACE_SSID_HERE [wifi-security] group= key-mgmt=wpa-psk pairwise= proto=rsn psk=PLACE_YOUR_PASSWORD_HERE [ipv4] dns-search= method=shared [ipv6] addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy dns-search= method=auto
I have messed with static IPs, changing the autoconnect, changing the band and many other settings.
I have set the WiFi Domain Registration as “country”:“US” in the config.json file.
Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong or provide a working balena-hotspot?
Any help is graciously appreciated.
