Detecting a device's Hotspot
Re: wipy as a wifi device sensor
Can the Sipy or Wipy detect a cellphone when its HotSpot is turned on? When I use WLAN.scan(), it doesn't appear in the list.
updated my Sipy last wednesday, so it should all be up to date.
check version by calling
I used static at first when configuring with wlan.ifconfig(...) and it only picked up the general wifi from my router, NOT the hotspot.
I then commented out the ifconfig() but even then it only picked up the general wifi.
I reinstalled Pymkr and updated my Sipy last wednesday, so it should all be up to date.
Did you use a static IP or DHCP when you try?
And what is your firmware version?
Current is 1.6.3
@livius No it can't connect to the hotspot, even if i write the SSID and key.
import machine from network import WLAN # configure the WLAN subsystem in station mode (the default is AP) wlan = WLAN(mode=WLAN.STA) # go for fixed IP settings (IP, Subnet, Gateway, DNS) wlan.ifconfig(config=('192.168.0.107', '255.255.255.0', '192.168.0.1', '192.168.0.1')) wlan.scan() # scan for available networks wlan.connect(ssid='mynetwork', auth=(WLAN.WPA2, 'my_network_key')) while not wlan.isconnected(): pass print(wlan.ifconfig())
@livius How do I do that? My current program is like this:
import machine from network import WLAN import pycom import time #WLAN test #Doc = https://goo.gl/hHOcbV #configure the WLAN subsystem in station mode (the default is AP) wlan = WLAN(mode=WLAN.STA) #Setup WLAN as a STAtion while (True): # scan for available networks, returns a tuple of scanned networks tup = wlan.scan() for i in range(len(tup)): #For all scanned networks for j in range (4): print(tup[i:j]) #Print networks ssid, bssid, sec, channel, rssi time.sleep_ms(2000) print("RESCAN")
what if you manually write ssid of hotspot wfif?
can you connect? If yes than it is strange that you do not see it on the list..
