Phone/Tablet WiFi Connection Issue

Post by carl1954 » 25 Feb 2018, 14:28

Hi all,

In the past, I've used the Sky Controller 1 with the Bebop 2, and have been able to get my phone or tablet to connect with no problem.
Now, when I activate WiFi on the phone or tablet, both the Sky Controller and the Bebop show up in the list of available devices, but selecting either one gives the message "Internet may not be available".
Network speed is given as "very strong".

The phone and the tablet are both Android, and both can get on the internet with no trouble.

FreeFlight Pro 4.0.47 is installed on the phone.
FreeFlight Pro 5.0.2 is installed on the tablet.

It had been a while since I'd flown the Bebop, and I figured it's probably overdue for calibration, but I need a phone or tablet connected to do that.
The Bebop seems to fly fine and responds to the Sky Controller.

Any ideas are welcome,
--Carl

"Internet connection not available" is just your phone knowing it's connected to a wifi Access Point and warning you it's not the Internet you're connected to. It's just a warning, nothing to worry about. Your App and drone should connect just fine...

Thanks, it's good to know that the internet connection comment is just a warning.
However, the phone/tablet are still not connecting to the Bebop.

Just as a follow up, it's decided it wants to work again.
I'm not doing anything differently then I was before, except that now I keep my fingers crossed.
