I have no problem connecting to the Raspberry with a PC however neither iPhone nor iPad work. After the devices attach via Wifi, they try to launch a login page. One can shortly see an Outernet web page giving a 404 error, then the device disconnects with no way to stop that and the Wifi connection is dropped.
Maybe because there is no working Internet connection, Apple devices try to go to some login page similar to what you get in a hotel? That standard login url probably does not exist, so the device thinks the login failed and it bails out of Wifi.
Else, the system is up and running. Just received the kit yesterday. I have 93.33% signal level and a data rate of 88 kbit (using Galaxy 19 in Southern California). Content is streaming in. So far world news articles from DW along with embedded photos.
