I am an amateur radio operator looking to connect my Outernet receiver to our local mesh network here in Santa Barbara, Calif. USA. In the event that the public internet goes down, Outernet could provide a vital, satellite-based source for up-to-date content on our local system.
An easy way to get this on our system, or so I thought, would be to get the chip to join my Wi-Fi network which is connected to the mesh. Once on that LAN, I could expose the chip’s IP to the rest of the mesh users. I see some discussions on this thread about getting Skylark to join W-Fi networks but most are related to problems in doing so. Is there a way to get the chip to hop onto a network rather than having it create a hotspot itself?
