ssh (wifi) issues - D01200

I'm following this guide to make an old KT into a touch screen kiosk for Home Assistant.

The kindle seems invisible to my network - despite clearly having an internet connection (the experimental browser reaches BBC news)

I've got to step 25. ssh in using wifi.

Bizarrely I can't get the kindle to register on my router's "attached devices" page. A
Code:
 ;711
gets me the IP:

Code:
Lease of [IP] obtained, lease time ...
But:

- I can't ping the IP "Destination Host Unreachable"
-
Code:
ssh root@kindleIP
just hangs - not even no route to host.

I'm lost as to how I'd debug further.

The only thing I'm not sure about with my setup is that:

- there was no
Code:
/mnt/us/usbnet/etc/authorized_keys
file on my kindle.
- So I created it by copying over my PC's ID_RSA.pub file and renaming it
Code:
authorized_keys
(which was a suggestion from this forum)

I can't delete the above - but this has magically foxed itself with no restarts or anything.

This morning ssh worked fine
