Today I received my kit and connected the parts together.
When I connect the powersupply, only a very short weak led flash is seen near the CHIP power connector
and nothing appears on the WiFi.
When I unplug the RTL stick, a bright led is lit on the CHIP and a weaker one. After a while the bright
one starts flashing. The CHIP is accessible via WiFi.
When I connect the RTL stick with or without LNA the leds immediately turn off.
I used an external adapter and the battery pack but the result is the same.
When I plug the RTL SDR into a computer, it is detected as:
Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL2838 DVB-T
So it does not seem it is bad.
What could be wrong?
