Hi there, I am currently running OctoPi on a Pi Model 3 B. We recently moved ISP from TalkTalk to Virgin Media with the Hub 3 Modem/Router combo.
We keep getting dropouts on the router which disconnects all devices and when the router is rebooted everything reconnects automatically... except the Pi.
I have tried the solution found here:
But after rebooting, confirming the Pi is connected and OctoPrint is accessible, if i reboot the router the Pi still does not automatically re-connect to eh network.
This leaves me with a problem when the network drops during a long 10 hour+ print when i can't connect to it to monitor it via the connected v2 PiCam as the only way to get the connection back is to force reboot the Pi via the inline power button on the power adaptor and that would obviously stop the print process.
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Note: I am using the built in WiFi-Chip on the Pi.
Also, i have no idea how to find out what version of OctoPi i installed. I can access the Pi through SSH if i need to put a command in the console to get this information.
The printer is an Anet A6 connected directly to the Pi 3 via USB.
Another issue i have had since we got the new router is connecting to the OctoPrint server via the local host name address. It worked fine on the old TalkTalk router but with the new router i can only access it via it's local IPv4 address. I have checked the connected devices in the routers control panel and it does show the correct host name that i set on the pi but i cannot connect to it via .lan or .local
Thanks in advance for any provided assistance
Edit: Just wanted to add another quick question if i may. Is it possible for me to update to the latest version of OctoPi without re-flashing the entire MicroSD card and starting from scratch? Thanks
