GoPiGo Bloxter connection tip: just use


We were having problems connecting to after switching wifi networks, I think due to dns caching in the browser, OS, or router. It is nice that connects to and explains your mistake if you are just connected to the internet, but that gets cached and doesn’t always get invalidated when switching back to the gopigo network.

Now we just use and it always works. I understand some people won’t recognize an ip address as a url but you might want to simply say OR in your official instructions. Or you could set up a dns entry for some subdomain like that always points to and then in your instructions say or - one of which should always connect to something.


Fantastic tip! Thanks! I’m going to update our FAQ now to add this in.
