How to reset vocore2 password to enter LuCI

Mon Sep 16, 2019 4:54 pm

I am new to VoCore2 Ultimate and openwrt but a longtime user of Linux with several distros. I cannot connect to my device after mistakenly changing the root vocore password to that of my internet IPL while attempting to reset to a different inernet IPL at my cottage. Before this happened I could connect to the LuCI GUI and to my home router without security and use the device to access the internet successfully. I was attempting to setup a new connection and WPA2-PSK when I replaced root/vocore password with that of my cottage IPL. Now I can connect to the VoCore2 router in my laptop and linux using my cottage IPL password but not use it in any way. If I try to login using 192.168.16.1 it will not connect to LuCI. When I connect power to VoCore2 the lights come on and begin flashing but I cannot connect to the GUI.

Is this situaTION uBoot live or dead? can it be revived, if so how?

default ip is 192.168.61.1, maybe this is wrong?

I managed to reach the openwrt terminal through windows and 192.168.61.1. As a result I could reinstall the latest LuCI version and log into the system successfully using root/vocore. Thank you for your help.

As in my last post I can login into LuCI using the ethernet cable from VoCore2 to my laptop. I can also ping VoCore successfully and wavemon indicates that the connection to Vocere2-464 is live. The problem is that I cannot connect to the internet presumably because the settings for the VoCore connection to the hotspot (i.e. my home router are inadequate). I set them up according to your tutorial http://vonger.cn/?p=14633, but that does not work. Can you help?

Unfortunately I don't know how to copy and paste a file in openwrt so I shall have to type it here as follows:

config wifi-device 'ra0'
option type 'ralink'
option variant 'mt7628'
option country 'CN'
option channel 'auto'
option disabled '0'
config wifi-iface 'ap'
option device 'ra0'
option mode 'ap'
option network 'lan'
option ifname 'ra0'
option encryption 'none'
option ssid 'VoCore2-a464'
config wifi-iface 'sta'
option device 'ra0'
option mode 'sta'
option network 'wwan'
option ifname 'apcli0'
option encryption 'psk2'
option disable '1'
option ssid 'MY ROUTER SSID'
option bssid 'MY PASSWORD'
option key 'MY PASSWORD'

I hope that I have copied the file correctly. The words in upper case disguise the actual words for my router's name and my password which I don't want to broadcast in this post.

The option Disable with a value of 1 means it is disabled. So change to a 0 if you want it to work.

I made some changes to try VoCore2 with a different hotspot with the different SSID and BSSID and once again, although VoCore2 is clearly flashing and sending data to the new router I cannot connect to the internet. The new file /etc/config/wireless is as follows:-
config wifi-device 'ra0'
option type 'ralink'
option variant 'mt7628'
option country 'CN'
option channel 'auto'
option disabled '0'
config wifi-iface 'ap'
option device 'ra0'
option mode 'ap'
option network 'lan'
option ifname 'ra0'
option encryption 'psk2'
option ssid 'VoCore2-a464'
config wifi-iface 'sta'
option device 'ra0'
option mode 'sta'
option network 'wwan'
option ifname 'apcli0'
option encryption 'psk2'
option disable '0'
option ssid 'MY OTHERROUTER SSID'
option bssid 'MY OTHER PASSWORD'
option key 'MY OTHER PASSWORD'

I don't understand why it's not working? Rather than changing the file SSID and PASSWORD in this file to switch to another hotspot is it possible to enter the details of both enabling VoCore to operate with either location? I'd appreciate your help again. This machine has a steep learning curve.

I should add something I discovered after my last post. I can reach the internet with the ethernet cable connecting VoCore2 to my computer, but not if it is disconnected. I this case VoCore2 is "unreachable".
