Fill in details about the networking system #833
I'm a bit hazy on what the Rpi in the cabinet is doing (apart from no longer running the MQTT broker), so are there some details we could fill in here: https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/wiki/wiki/Digital-infrastructure#networking
It would be good to state exactly how much internet/bandwidth we should be getting in here, (and reference bandwidth tests that might have been done with a computer plugged into a cable). Maybe that funny rpi server (which is running some program I'd like to know the name of) has a feature where it can regularly check and record the internet speed every morning to see if things are improving or deteriorating.
I hit a wall trying to set up the Sonoff-Tasmota (competitor to espurna), which requires me to fill in various things on this file:
I don't know what these numbers do, but their default numbers look invalid for our stuff. We probably need to know what they should be set to here if doing an IoT stuff.
The Sonoff POW2 that was wired to the far-too-long extension lead appears bricked now too.
Even when you get something uploaded, it's unresponsive.
I've checked the USB-UART bridge (the BAITE B75937 one in the components cabinet) and it's reading 3.4V, so shouldn't have blown it, but I'm not going to use it again, just in case. There are reports of things working by changing your flasher. arendst/Sonoff-Tasmota#1027
Sometimes there are bad solder joints that can be fixed. But this is two in a row, from something that had been working. I've spent a lot of time on this, and getting quite discouraged.
Basically, the best options are to:
PS I've stowed the POW2s in the Tosca box on the shelves where it is visible through the side.
Just looking at this, if you're using DHCP you shouldn't need any parameters should you? Our network is actually a 10.0.0.0 network not a 192.168.0.0 network but like I say your parameters seem to suggest you don't need to put stuff in if you're using DHCP.
