We are trying to build a raspberry pi bot using the book "building robotics with raspberry pi". We are able to connect to the raspberry pi via the wifi on an ipad, SSH to access for commands when the power is connected via micro USB. However, when we disconnect the USB and connect the power to the battery pack (6 AA through buck converter set to 5.0v), the ipad will not connect to the raspberry pi? The raspberry pi turns on with lights blinking and such, but can't make it connect?
We are new to this and not sure how to proceed? Any thoughts, tips or ideas, would be appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
