Thank you for balena-os / wifi-connect. It’s exactly what I’m looking for. I may have made a mistake in initial configuration. I installed balena-os / wifi-connect in the shell via SSH over a WiFi connection following you instructions to do…
I saw no errors until it got to the following:
Fetched 6,316 kB in 6s (984 kB/s)
Download complete and in download only mode
WiFi Connect Raspbian Installer: Deactivating and disabling dhcpcd…
client_loop: send disconnect: Broken pipe
That last line was me being kicked out of the SSH connection, which makes sense because the Pi was being reconfigured by your software. But now I realize that I don’t know what state it leaves the machine in when your install is complete. I cannot SSH to that IP anymore. I’m sure I can connect a keyboard and mouse to it and get a shell (at least I hope so) but your documentation doesn’t really tell me how I “finish” the configuration so that if the device cannot connect on startup (or whatever) it will create that Access Point. Right now, after restarting the Pi and all, there’s no “WiFi Connect” networking showing on my other devices.
Your help in analyzing what to do next, much appreciated!
