First of all thank you once again...this is the furthest Ive gotten thanks to your advice...here are the steps I went through in order before I got it up and running.
Nano had no internet connection. It did before when I tinkered with it so I think I screwed it up. The app is successfully downloaded, I enabled tethering, ensured file transfer is enabled on my Nexus, and I still get the "waiting for connection" ...
Restarted the device with the nano connected to it ... same result
Restarted the device again with the nano connected to it ... and now the nano's pineapple server address comes up in the address bar on the screen and is attempting to load....and after a while it says "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT"
Ensured that my Nexus device is on the network name I gave the nano...that didn't work...My Nexus connects but there is no internet now.
I will do a factory reset...
Ok...after the factory reset and a couple of restarts on my device it worked.
1. Here is what I learned. I had to be away from any networks that my device picks up in order for the nano to make a connection.
2. I also had to have a good clear view of the sky. In my room it was a 'no-go'. Out on the patio, which has a sheetmetal roof it was in and out. With a clear view of the sky it worked...bulletins did load.
Probably something that is a no brainer for you but it took me resetting it per your instructions along with some troubleshooting to get it right.
Again thank you...If I may ask...
What first nano tool would you recommend I use? How are you using that specific tool(s)?
