You get an A+
For your next foray into Outernet, get it connected to your router. I’ll send you the new User Manual if you like, just send me a regular email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Ken
I tried your request, my wifi AP has two different SSIDs, one with a password and one that is open. When I followed your directions per the user guide, I tried it with my open AP. The DC did not connect and I lost connection with the DC, hence my issues stated above and my struggles trying to reimage an SD card and getting the DC to create an OUTERNET AP. I used my 3rd SD card and put the skylark image on it, connected it to my AP using a password and it worked.
So maybe a not in the user guide stating that you can not connect it to an open AP otherwise you will lose connectivity.
