Hello Madhumati,

I see you configured netPI in Wifi client mode. And I see also that netPI receives the IP address 192.168.10.100 through Wifi router DHCP server.

Have you tried to use the "ping" command like "ping 192.168.10.100" instead of using the web browser and ip address 192.168.10.100?

I have another question. Are there other Wifi clients present in the Wifi network next to netPI also? If there are no others can you please configure other clients next to netPI (your notebook for example or any other device)? And then please repeat "ping" or web browser command to other clients ip address and see if there is the same problem with other clients too.

Thx

Hi Armin,

I changed eth0 to fixed IP addess & set as 192.168.253.1, then I did same setting for wifi as client mode, plse chk screenshot, then it works, I can ping also the wlan IP.

Thx Madhumati for letting us known.

I think the problem was that eth0 and wlan0 in your first case have two DHCP server settings active and hence most important two gateway addresses came alive.

This make a problem in ip addressing scheme. If two gateway addresses are active then netPI Linux system don't know where to send destination IP address to in cases the addressed IP address is not within the same subnet.

A solution for this will come at a later software version of netPI under construction that is able to configure data routing. But today this feature is not supported so you have to take care yourself to specify a single gateway only.
