I’ve tried the Freedombox on a Pine A64+ and a Raspberry 3 B+ and everything seems to work fine (except coquelicot, so sad…): connecting succesfully by its static ip within the home network and by dyn dns domain.
But I want to use the Freedombox over Wifi as it should not stand near the router and I don’t want to lay a long ethernet cable.
On both, Pine and Pi, I’ve tried it using an USB-Wifi-Dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un, realtek-driver).
The result is the same: the Freedombox can connect with the wifi but drops the connection after a few seconds. I’ve rebooted the Freedombox, unplugged the ethernet cable but the Freedombox is not reachable by it’s static ip or domain. I don’t know if it tries to connect automatically and drops the wifi connection or if it does not even try to connect.
Maybe it is intended, to use the Freedombox only by LAN?
Or is it the wifi dongle? Can you recommend one?
Thank you in advance!!
