Actually we are not moaning but reporting issues, as was asked for, and for your information I have posted it on git hub....so anything else you would like to say...?.
Yes it’s an excellent job and not something I could even contemplate doing, and have the upmost respect for those who do it... :)

I have changed the password three times to my own from Astroberry, and still it needs Astroberry password on a few things and my own works on others, which is really annoying as I don’t know which one it wants and have to try both till one works, sometimes my own works and sometimes Astroberry works... ☹️☹️???

Just a FYI, 4k does NOT work on this version of Astroberry, yet I have buster on another card and runs in 4K fine, is there a reason for this not working, as I use a 4k monitor...one of the reasons to move to rpi4 was the 4k option, I have tried editing the config.txt file but no use...or raspi-config does not display the 4k resolutions either, yet they are there in Raspbian buster...

You are absolutely right, the new IP works.
However, from a technical perspective, I understand why the developer wants to force a static IP, so that every user, everywhere, has a StellarMate gadget with a static IP, same for everyone: 10.250.250.1.
It's a standardization matter, for help, support and everything similar: imagine people who are not so able with computers and do barely know what an IP is... ;)

Cheers


Yes, excellent point.... ?

I was able to use 5Ghz band in 1.4.4 as well, with just one issue, that I'm finding also in 1.4.5:

The default hotspot, in my case, always connects to 2.5Ghz band however, I can manually force it to 5Ghz from the Network configuration window, but after saving thew new configuration the line
address1=10.250.250.1/24,10.250.250.1
is automatically overwritten by the system, and you loose the 10.250.250.1 static IP, and the Network Manager automatically chose a dynamic IP in the order if 10.42.0.1 for StellarMate AP.
The only way I solved this was to MANUALLY edit the "stellarmate" Network Configuration file adding again the deleted line, to get the static IP again.
It seems the Network Manager does not permit to set a static IP for an Access Point (IPv4 section of the configuration), so your original stellarmate configuration file is forcing it.
See picture, greyed out IP is not editable.



Yes, this is exactly what is happening, and has on mine too, but seems to run ok with that new ip....so what am I missing...?

The change for RPI4 is the support for 5Ghz, which actually might have brought in these issues. Maybe I should make the Hotspot always default to 2.4Ghz to make it stable?

That’s because you are not using an rpi4, as that’s where the problems lie... :) also with rpi3b+ you are not in 64bit, so really on your system it should be very stable...

Hi, sorry to hear of your issues, I know for a fact that 1.4.4 was reported as very slow with the same symptoms that you have, but the 1.4.5 version, which I have, is much much faster
So not sure why you are still seeing the old issues....but I would certainly check it direct with monitor and mouse and keyboard connected...just to rule out VNC as the issue, I run mine at 2560 x 1600 resolution and all good....
