Well, turns out that most of my problems were related to the fact that I live in Germany, the weather is crap, and there’s not much sun. But wait! I live in Germany! According to Fox News, it’s the sunniest country in the planet! Seriously! Have a look at that! Fox News about solar power in Germany
So, instead of using my balcony, which is pretty much useless, I went to my building’s garage, where I can try stuff a bit longer.
And…. It works! With a small caveat. Turns out that my wifi router is too far from the garage. The signal just can’t get there.
So the distance problem is basically solved! And we have liftoff!!!
