I have run into something seriously weird. It used to work and then from one day to the next it has stopped working.
My Setup: - Stream 7 Tablet with Win10 - Raspberry Pi Model 2B with Vilros plug and play Wlan dongle
What I did in the past:
On Win10 tablet:
a. netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=adhocname key=password
b. netsh wlan start hostednetwork
c. Then I simply waited until the RPi automatically connected
d. ping the RPi: ping raspberrypi.mshome.net
e. ....ssh into the pi
but now for some reason when I try ping the pi it returns either;
- request timed out OR
- Reply from 169.254.155.200: Destination net unreachable
anyone got any ideas please? NOTE Windows firewall is turned off completely. Not sure, but that didnt make a difference in the past.
Why would it work perfectly fine the one day yet the next not.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
