I currently have an apache webserver running on my Jetson Nano. I have a Waveshare Wireless NIC module installed on the Nano so I can connect it to Wi-Fi networks . I can access the web pages I created if I connect the Nano to the same network as my laptop or phone and enter the Nano’s IP address in my device’s browser. I want to be able to access these pages wirelessly without connecting the Nano to a network and without having to get it’s IP address.
I’ve tried enabling the Wi-Fi hotspot and connecting my phone to it, but I keep getting an alert that the activation of the network connection failed. I also tried turning the Nano into a hotspot using hostapd and connecting my computer to it. But I am not sure how to view the webpages that way, or if it even is possible. I tried typing localhost in my computer’s browser while it was connected but that did not work either.
What should I do next?
