hi guys, i have a little problem with connecting the ez-b to my computer. My ez-b will not connect to my computer's wifi receiver, it is very strange because it will connect to every other computer i try it on, just not mine. I even tried plugging in a usb wifi dongle and it still will not connect to my ez-b through this computer, but it will connect to other computers that I use that dongle with. i tried disabling windows defender and fire wall and i don't have any other spyware programs installed on this pc. I also tried updating my wifi receivers drivers. It is very strange. I would like to use my ez-b in adhoc mode vs client mode. I have also reset the ez-b by holding the button and restarting my computer. My laptop is an hp pavilion x360 and it’s running on windows 8.1. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to help me out.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
Can you connect to anything else with that laptop?
I looked up the x360 and it is a convertible so it might have and be in an airplane mode.
EZB supports two modes:
1) Client Mode
EZB connects to 2.4 Ghz wifi network with SSID and a password, EZB connects to a router.
2) Access Point Mode
EZB acts as a wireless router with SSID and computers(clients) connect to EZB network.
You wrote this:
In both cases EZB does not connect to your PC or wifi receiver.
So If i understood well you don't want to use the "Client Mode" so the only available option is Access Point Mode although there is an adhoc mode and asfaik nowhere is mentioned as supported.
Can you clarify which mode 1 or 2 you are trying to use ?
Go to the properties of your wifi adapter and click on the advanced tab and check with wireless mode it is set to.
I have mine set to 6. Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g.
Also just look at the other settings and see if anything jumps out at you as wrong.
You could try comparing them with another PC that connects.
I believe he is trying to connect to the EZBv4 from his PC not connect PC to Access Point and EBZ to Access Point.
The details are important, the way he wrote it seems EZB is not connecting to the computer when should be the opposite.
Let's assume EZB is configured in Access Point Mode, the first thing unplug any Ethernet connection and keep only the WIFI dongle or if is a laptop keep the built in wifi on then try to connect to the EZB's network.
The version with the Bluegiga module or the newer slash 2 (MXchip module)?
I know the Bluegiga module early firmware had issues connecting to HP computers due to incompatibility of the WiFi chips they had in them.
If you have a Bluegiga module version a firmware update should take care of it, but you'll need a PICKIT programmer. Otherwise, I'd suggest updating to the slash 2 WiFi board.
If that is the case EZB does not support that mode. In adhoc mode Windows creates the network but does not provide a DHCP server, so EZB eventually connects to network but can't get an IP from windows, for that to work you will need to assign a static IP in EZB, and that option does not exist so is not supported.
Check this url:
btw i have an adhoc network:
Is a windows 7 sharing the network, I use to quarantine bad applications, I can connect but nothing gets out from there, and is called Phoenix, because frequently the environment is regenerated.
Yes. Check the hack nights videos.
The available firmwares do not support Audio, although is possible if you use a more powerful Arduino e.g. Teensy 3.2 and off-course you will need a firmware to support the audio.
I can't find the EZB + usb tutorial can you fill in the details ?
Ezrobot has it on their website here: http://www.ez-robot.com/Shop/AccessoriesDetails.aspx?prevCat=9&productNumber=51
side note... wow I’m surprised I got this message to work on iOS 13. The copy and paste is worse than ever before. Copying a url doesn’t have a select all option anymore. So you have to drag the little blue dots and they keep bouncing around the screen. Also spell check doesn’t work anymore. It highlights but clicking on it opens the copy paste options only lol. Lastly the auto correct grabs weird words and mostly doesn’t work at all. So this paragraph has taken for ever to write lol
