I have recently tried to access home assistant running on my Raspberry Pi 3B but I receive the following error in my browser:
This site can’t be reached homeassistant ’s server IP address could not be found.
The software is working, as I can see it continues to run the automatons I’ve set. I can’t seem to find it on my IP network and connecting via Ethernet makes no difference either. Is there any way to fix this? Or is my Pi broken?
My bad, I didn’t realise that was an acceptable url. Seems strange you can’t find the ip with Fing. That suggests your Pi is on a different network to your phone. Might be worth connecting directly to the router with ethernet and then trying to find on your router again. If your router supports it, you could fix that ip and make a note of it for future reference. Might be worth considering the DuckDNS add-on as well, once you get it sorted
So I plugged the pi directly into my router and was able to see it on the network and see its ip address. However, i still can’t connect to it. This makes me think the wireless capability of the pi might be broken?
Is there anything else you’d recommend before replacing the pi?
Unfortunately I don’t have a spare monitor or keyboard and ethernet isn’t really a permanent option. What’s most confusing is that it has been working perfectly for a number of months and has only recently stopped connecting. Could there be an issue with the router?
I’ve now tried another pi and i cant connect to that either, so that rules out the pi as the issue.
