StellarMate HotSpot disappeared, where did it go?
StellarMate HotSpot is only active when StellarMate is not connected to any network.
If you connect StellarMate to your WiFi network, or if you connect StellarMate to LAN via Ethernet, then the HotSpot is deactivated. It is only reactivated again when there is no network to reach.
1. Failure to bootup: If the unit cannot be reached in any method (WiFi, Ethernet..etc) then connect HDMI cable + keybaord and see the output on the screen. StellarMate is quite tolerance to power off but sometimes part of the SD card gets corrupted and requires manual intervention.
2. Wrong Home WiFi password: If you entered a wrong home WiFi password, this can lead to HotSpot dropping while not being able to establish connection to the Home WiFi Network. The recommended solution is to use HDMI+Keyboard to login to StellarMate OS, and then reset the WiFi network from the StellarMate Tools App on the desktop. After restarting the unit, the HotSpot should automatically come up.
If you have trouble connecting StellarMate to your router via WiFi, please access your router and clear all cache and any entries for StellarMate.
