how to connect Marty with PI3 to hotspot and home network
Hi, If I understand a reply to a post correctly, with a PI3 you manage to create the wifi hotspot Marty and connect to another wifi network.
I have just dismantled Marty and fitted a wifi dongle to my PI3, re-assembled and then powered up.
The hotspot has not been created, possibly due to the dongle? So I am now about to switch Marty off, dismantle and remove the dongle.
Having done that and re-powered Marty the hotspot is created and I can VNC into Marty.
looking at etc/network/interfaces I believe this file has been edited so that wlan0 is the hotspot and wlan1 set up for another SSID configured in wpa_supplicant.conf.
wpa_supplicant.conf has the network commented out, so in theory I should just have to edit wpa_supplicant.conf with my network details.
Is this correct?
Do I have to do anything else so that wlan0 is associated with the on board wifi and wlan1 the dongle?
I know my dongle works because I use it with an A+ .
I am loathe to dismantle Marty again to fit the dongle in case there is something else I have to do.
Also I am using your PI image, not one I have created myself.
