Skybridge showing different IP address
« on: February 19, 2021, 09:56:32 pm »
I have a new BridgeCom Skybridge.  The front display shows my IP address.  However, yesterday I could not bring up the Pi-Star dashboard using the display IP address.  I had to search for devices and my hotspot indicated it had a different IP address.  I typed address into my browser and was able to load the dashboard.  Is it common for the Skybridge to display a different IP from what actually works in your browser?

That's a common issue with many of the PiStar based hotspots with the OLED displays. If you want to always know the IP of your hotspot, set up a static DHCP lease in your wifi router.
