Pygate & Wifi connection issues

  • Hey, got a strange issue. Pygate+LoPy4 usually connects to WiFi effortlessly, when the WiFi is in an already switched on state.

    But when I switch on both my Pygate & WiFi router simultaneously, the pygate does not connect, once the WiFi connection is stable. It continuously lies in the below loop.

    while not wlan.isconnected():
        print('.', end='')

    I forsee an issue of having a power outage, and then when the power is back, the pygate wont connect.

    Kindly help.

  • You're correct there's no failsafe implemented in the pygate example. You could for example issue a machine.reset() if connecting takes too long, or if the connection is dropped (though you'll have to write your own checking method to verify the connection is still up)
