Tello wifi connection

Hi, I just started using Tello with drone blocks and things work fine so far except one thing. Once I connect to the tello wifi, my computer loses the internet connection. How can I avoid that? Any hint would be appreciated. Many thanks, Ludwig

Good question. I’ve been thinking about this for a while as I’ve run into the same problem with the Go1 quadruped robot when working on this video:

The only way I’ve been able to achieve this is with a cheap USB → Wifi adapter. That would allow one adapter to be connected to the internet while the other is connected to your drone/robot.

You can configure Tello to connect to a personal/school access point, but that would then cause some complexity to find the IP address and we’d need to enable DroneBlocks to connect to that IP.

Is there anything specifically you’re trying to do or is it just an inconvenience not having internet access. BTW if you use the mobile app on iOS/Android you should have access to both wifi/cellular.
