A storm blew though here this afternoon and we had a brief power outage. Everything appeared to come up OK. I had no problem connecting to the internet from other devices in the house after everything rebooted. But Piaware was unreachable from the local LAN. The Skyview screen would not connect. And after rebooting and checking the logs, it looks like the Pi was not connected to FA either. This is confirmed by the FA stats which shows no data for about an hour. The Pi appeared to be running though…red light on solid, green flashing occasional. It is highly likely that the Pi was up and running before my router and/or cable modem though. Rebooting the Pi fixed the problem today but only because I noticed there was a problem.
Does anyone use a network maintenance script to monitor the connection and restart networking if there is no connectivity? I’d like to ping the router and use systemctl to restart networking if there is no connectivity unless anyone has a better idea.
Is this something that should be a standard part of the Piaware image?
