No code today, just some tips about a specific network configuration to work with the drone.
In 2 days I’ll share a session about how to do some AI with a Drone, and I just realized that I’ll be live doing this session. And, going back to my post 4 in this series, I realized that
My PC is connected to the drone via Wifi.
That means, I can’t connect to the Internet to host the session line.
In normal times, I’ll buy a couple of adapters and I’ll have everything in wireless mode. However this days, a simple amazon request may take a couple of weeks.
So, I analyze my home network and I realized that I can reuse some of my Linksys Velop nodes in my office. At home, I have 3 nodes to cover all the house, and I decided to move one of the nodes at my office and use one of the Ethernet ports to connect a network cable to my PC. So, my final configuration is something like this (sorry no visio installed)
Thanks to this port, I can be connected to the internet and host the session; and also be connected to the drone and have some fun !

See you in a couple of days!
