Good Evening,
I am trying to utilize a portable Node utilizing a RPi 3 running the Crompton RPi2-3_V1.02beta_Allstar.img and my personal hotspot on my Verizon Wireless iPhone. I have followed the Wireless How-To on the Crompton website, in fact I have even exchanged several emails with Doug and still no luck. 
First and foremost, my node is up and working connected to my home router with an ethernet cable, it's when I go wireless that I have issues. I have cleared the WPA file as suggested and only have my iPhone wireless saved. When I enable the wireless on the RPi3 and do an ifconfig, I see an IP assigned I am assuming by Verizon Wireless? I wait approximately 10-15 minutes for my node to populate and try to connect to another node and my node tells me the connection has failed. Thinking I may have a bad RPi3, I have tried this with two other RPi3's. 
Further when I try and connect wireless to my home router, again I clear the WPA file and save just my home router SSID and passphrase. The ifconfig shows a different IP address on my subnet than the one static ip assigned my wired adapter. When I attempt to ping any other device on my home subnet it says it's unavailable. I also cannot ping the wireless node.
What Am I missing? I have also heard that Verizon Wireless blocks certain ports and some recommend using a VPN.
