Re: Rigpi has no internet connection #rss

Thanks Bruce. I did not make a backup until I had made changes. I will have to see about getting a new SD card from MFJ for the backup.

Garry,  This is very good news.  This is a reminder to do a complete clone of the original
rigpi card before doing any settings.  You can do this within the PI's system using the
clone utility.  Do this especially before any unique WIFI/LAN settings and before
you do any password changes.  Make 2 clones of the original card, one for safe keeping
then the other to then make changes.  Once all settings/changes are done then again
make another clone.  In other words make a backup to a backup to a backup.
This will save anybody time to get back to a square before the problem.

Bruce, I downloaded the Raspberry pi Raspbian and installed it. I can now get to internet with wifi and ethernet.  Must be something wrong with the Rigpi software. Bruce or anyone, I do not remember how I set up the static port in my Rigpi. What files do I need to change to remove the static address? This may fix my problem or else I need a new MFJ programmed SD card.


Howard, if you read this, I still do not get a green light on the Ethernet port.

The picture when you hovered over the network icon showed the /24 would make it a class c network ( subnet mask which would isolate it from the 0.x network.
it might work if you changed the subnet mask to or a /16 network. it depends on the local addressing settings on the router as well.

But just for funzies i'd try setting it back to dhcp. restart the pi, verify route, then note the network settings handed out by the dhcp server in your router.
then move on from there.
