QUICK START

  • Attach microUSB port to a stable power source, such as a USB charger or computer USB port. DO NOT SUPPLY MORE THAN 6.0V as that will damage your VoCore2.
  • The SSID "VoCore2" should be accessible from other devices within 30 seconds of applying power.
  • Connect to the SSID "VoCore2" from your wireless device (phone, computer, laptop, tablet, ODROID, etc.)
  • Use one of the following two methods to connect:
  •     1. Open an SSH terminal ("ssh" on Linux/Android, "PuTTY" on Windows, etc.) and log in to "VoCore2" (user: root, pass: vocore)
  •     2. Using USB2TTL, you can connect to the VoCore2 through another computer's USB port (no driver required). Once connected, a serial port should show up for the VoCore2. NOTE: UART speed is 115200bps, 8bit, no parity, 1 stop bit. For Windows, USB2TTL device should appear in Device Manager. For Linux/MacOS, USB2TTL device should appear at /dev/tty.usbmodem_1
The VoCore2 is now in AP (Access Point) mode. It is possible to put the VoCore2 in AP + STA mode, which allows the VoCore2 to connect to a wireless hotspot (AP) and provide wireless access from that hotspot to anything connected to the AP and Ethernet port.
  • In order to setup AP + STA Mode, run the following commands in the console after connecting to the VoCore2:
;Enter your AP SSID
uci set wireless.sta.ssid=[HOME AP SSID]
;Enter your AP PASSWORD
uci set wireless.sta.key=[AP PASSWORD] uci set wireless.sta.network=wwan uci set wireless.sta.disabled=0 uci commit
;note: better to set sta to disabled, so next boot if you VoCore2 can not connect to your home ap, you will still able to connect to VoCore2 hotspot. uci set wireless.sta.disabled=0 uci commit
/etc/init.d/network restart sleep 10 uci set wireless.sta.disabled=1 uci commit ;wait around 10 seconds, your VoCore is in AP+STA mode
;note: you might need to setup network to enable dhcp(get ip from your hotspot). uci delete network.wwan uci set network.wwan=interface uci set network.wwan.proto=dhcp uci commit ;note: you might need to setup firewall to enable access to internet through your hotspot. uci del_list firewall.@zone[1].network=wwan uci add_list firewall.@zone[1].network=wwan uci set firewall.@zone[1].input=ACCEPT uci set firewall.@zone[1].output=ACCEPT uci set firewall.@zone[1].forward=ACCEPT uci set firewall.@zone[1].masq=1 uci set firewall.@zone[1].mtu_fix=1 uci commit
;Reboot VoCore2 or call "/etc/init.d/network restart"
;Wait a moment for VoCore2 to appear in AP+STA mode
