Greetings, first post. I started using Piaware on the 10th and love it. I bought a new Pi B+ to use just for Piaware.
I had it running perfectly for a couple of days and decided that I wanted to move the Pi closer to the window so I could hang the antenna outside for better reception. I could just get a 30 foot ethernet cable to do this, but I’d rather do it with Wifi. So yesterday I follow the Optional instructions to set up Wifi on the Pi. Works great. So I unplug the ethernet cable from the Pi and everything seems to look fine at first. My live data is still showing on the local web page and piaware-status looks good. BUT, on the FlightAware My ADS-B page I saw that my feed was no longer showing “Live”. I plugged the ethernet cable back in and it’s live again.
Shouldn’t this work with a Wifi connection only? By the way, when I had the ethernet cable out I could ping out from the Pi and all the networking looked good. Just the connection to FlightAware wasn’t working. I’m not sure the make of the Wifi dongle, but I bought it with the Pi.
