I’m trying to install code onto a Rachel-Plus 3, when I was physically at the Archive this was easy, I could plug it into the Ethernet and then have my laptop connect to the Rachel WiFi, the laptop accessed the net via the Rachel, and the Rachel had direct access - great.
BUT I’m now trying to install at a different location without a convenient ethernet connection, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to do it since the Rachel box doesn’t seem to be able to use WiFi to connect to the Internet.
I’m presuming I’m missing something, because someone told me that a use case was teachers taking the box to a cafe in town with unmetered internet access where they could have it update its software, and I’ve yet to find a cafe with an ethernet connection.
Am I missing something obvious, or is this a significant limitation, and in which case can anyone suggest an optimum configuration for a laptop able to talk to a Rachel box and the net, and the Rachel box also able to talk to the net. (So the laptop can tell the Rachel box to download code/content).
