RRC cabled or WiFi
« on: 2021-01-15, 23:32:52 »
Hello group,,

When I connect to a remote RRC Radio, is it possible to see if it is connected to its router via cable or via WiFi?

73,

You mean you have connected both a ethernet cable and Wifi card ?

then ethernet will be used by default as long as the ethernet cable is connected

if you look in the router status you can see which mac address the RRC has, the Wifi card has a different mac which is not shown on the RRC info page

Thanks, Mike.

On the Info page of the RRC I get:

Serial number   9934
MAC address   00:23:a7:c7:51:4b
IP address   192.168.38.110
Netmask   255.255.255.0
Gateway   192.168.38.1
DNS   192.168.38.1
Wi-Fi network   Nabo2

Will this MAC always the of the cables connector?
For this particular case, the RRC is not cabled, so this interface is not active.

I can also see that a WiFi network is indicated.

But in the general case, were both WiFi and cable are connected, it could be that either of them are not good for Internet access. If I can connect to the RRC from the outside, then I can not know what interface it is using?

In case it is cabled, it could still be that there is no Internet connection, so it tries the WiFi.

Will it automatically try the other connection if the active one stops working?
Or will a reset be required?

Hi

if it's cabled you will see that mac in the router

if the ethernet connection has link at startup it will select ethernet and will not change if link is lost  without reset
