What is Lonely Mode on Open Mesh Access Points?'
- Open Mesh Access Points
Open Mesh Access Points enter Lonely Mode if four Internet checks in a row fail. In this case the node assumes it is operating on the wrong WiFi channel (the channel might have been changed). Normal WiFi operations are disabled.
In Lonely Mode, the node acts as a wifi client and scans all channels to find another internet connection. Scanning all channels takes approximately 5 minutes.
Lonely Mode indication
