Received OSMC wifi-ac adapter - ISSUES


#223

The whole issue is really strange. Did you actually tried the Wifi Stick maybe on your PC to exclude it is a Software issue?


#224

The stick is working well on my pro laptop Win10 on 5ghz


#225

Can you SSH to the router?


#226

no I cant


#227

Well, try the other two ping tests.


#228

test ping from laptop win10 wireless, ping failed
same when laptop is wired on router


#229

On the Pi run: sudo tcpdump -n "icmp" -i wlan0

Then run ping -c3 10.0.0.12 from another machine.

We’ll then see if the pings are being received on the Pi.


#230

I have issue uploading photo right now but yes I can see the raspberry receiving packets.
try to upload photo later


#231

You probably see something like this (with different IP addresses):

18:17:04.641798 IP 192.168.8.100 > 192.168.8.33: ICMP echo request, id 9059, seq 1, length 64
18:17:04.641894 IP 192.168.8.33 > 192.168.8.100: ICMP echo reply, id 9059, seq 1, length 64

a request and a reply. It looks very much like the reply traffic is being blocked either at the WiFi stick or (more likely) at the router.

You need to check all firewall settings on the router and anywhere else that might be blocking traffic from IP address 10.0.0.12.

One other thing. Try a different IP address on the Pi.


#232

Yes it looks like this.
Firewall is off on router and static IP address with right mac address is set


#233

Did you try a different IP address?


#234

Yes same result than previous IP


#235

Then I’m out of ideas, I’m afraid. The best I can suggest is that you go through all the router settings and see if anything looks like it might be blocking some of the traffic.


#236

Maybe try a fresh install of OSMC on a second SD Card to exclude any possible misconfiguration.


#237

Windows computers using same stick on 5ghz have no issue . I will be surprised if due to router config. (In addition I had same issue testing with another router). I will continue my investigations

thx


#238

A Windows computer would have been given a different IP address, but we’ve now eliminated that possibility.

Other than installing a fresh copy of OSMC, as recommended by @fzinken, together with a reboot of the router, I can’t think of a way forward.


#239

ok thanks but I m already using a fresh dedicated install to test wifi


#240

I guess I will try another dongle, any model to recommend me?


#241

HI,

If its a fresh install you need to do this again:

sudo cp /lib/firmware/mt7610u_sta.template.dat /lib/firmware/mt7610u_sta.dat

and reboot, it should then establish a connection. Removing mt7610u_sta.dat and rebooting should get the auto-confgiration to then work.

Tom.


#242

@Tom_Doyle, auto-configuration doesn’t work neither.
arping validated the connection but tcp/ip configuration is not effective on 5GHZ and ping not working.

Thanks
