Tellstick not found

Post by tobbe » Thu Apr 16, 2015 7:26 pm

Hi

I'm a happy user of OpenNethome who has run into a little snag.
I have used my Tellstick with my Raspi with no problems for a while now, together with a single port usb to serial adapter.
I decided to upgrade my single port serial to usb cable to a 4 port usb to serial cable, because i need to control some serial devices.
However after doing this, my Tellstick wont connect.
I checked dmesg, and all five serial ports were found and given an /dev/ttyUSB designation.

However, in the config screen for the Tellstick, only USB0, 1 and 2 is a option in the dropdown box.
I tried to manually change the config file to ttyUSB4, however it failed

Does anyone have an idea what I am doing wrong?

Im not sure what u mean usb to serial but 2 possible idea what i get my mind.
1. raspi cant give enough power all devices what are connected
2. if you have 4 serial port in raspberry tellstick is usbTTY0-4 :D
so look all usbtty devices in /dev folder and test each one if tellstick work

Ok, this was actually a limitation in OpenNethome. The RXTX-library I use forces me to list the possible port names, I was a bit lazy and only listed up to /dev/ttyUSB2 (I did not think people would have more serial ports...).

I have added up to /dev/ttyUSB4 now and it is available in the nightly build.
