Got my Vero 4K today, set it up and updated, and restored some settings/library from the SD back up copy of my old Vero 1. All works brilliantly and super fast compared to Vero 1, with a couple of exception.
Ethernet to WiFi Tethering doesn’t appear to work at all (it did on the v1). I have a stable LAN connection via Ethernet.
I have switched on the WiFi adapter in myosmc, which works after a few minutes. I can see WiFi networks, but I can’t connect to my local WiFi network unless I make it open. It rejects the password each time. I have tried using osmc skin, in case it was the input keyboard but it’s the same. I also strangely now have this issue on my Vero 1 but perhaps it’s always been the same as I never connected it to my network via WiFi…
When I switch tethering on (Ethernet to WiFi) it seems to disable the WiFi altogether. I have checked Connmanctl status and it says WiFi tethering is active.
I used Tethering on my Vero 1 (updated to latest version of osmc) with no issues, so surprised it doesn’t work on 4K.
Thanks for your reply Sam. Sorry to be more specific, this is two issues - Wifi connection and Tethering:
V4K Ethernet connects to network just fine with passphrase.
V4K Wifi adapter can be enabled. It sees wireless network (WPA2-PSK, AES, 2.5Ghz SSID visible) and can connect to it but not consistently. It is on the same network as the ethernet connection so will try a different one.
[Vero 1 has same issue now I notice, as I have moved it to a room without ethernet access]
I disconnect V4K from wifi network (if it’s connected) but leave adapter enabled. When I go to ethernet to wifi tethering, it says it’s enabled as osmc_wifi but I can’t connect to it on my Viera TV or Ipad or macbook. I have tried manually entering the connection in case SSID is hidden, but same result no connection. I looked at Connmanctl via ssh, it says wifi tethering is already enabled.
