I am trying to use my robots in class again this year. This did not work so well last year, but we have a new IT staff and I am more optimistic that we might solve this.
I have five GoPiGo 2s. My students are trying to connect to them with Surface Pro 4 computers running Windows 10 EDU. Last year our network was set to actively scramble the signal from rogue WiFis which shut me down. This has been resolved.
Currently our student computers can connect to a robot’s WiFi, however, they cannot acquire an IP address from the robot as is evidenced by seeing a 169 IP address when doing ipconfig from the command line. My personal MacBook Pro and work Surface Book (also Win 10 EDU) do not have this problem and get an address like 10.10.10.xx.
Have you seen this before? If so, how do we fix it?
Also, I noticed that there’s a new version of the Dexter OS. I downloaded it and tried to run it on one of my GPG2s but the unit won’t boot. What is the latest version of the OS these units can run? Can I download that somewhere to get this one guy back up and running?
