Hello, I am currently using my turtlebot on an ethernet connection, and it works just fine, but I would like to set it up for a wireless network. I have the laptop and the workstation connected. I can have them ping each other and I can SSH into the laptop. However, when I start the service and try to launch the dashboard, it gives me an error saying it cannot communicate with the master. I have triple-checked my ROS_MASTER_URI and ROS_HOSTNAME environment variables on the laptop and the workstation and they are correct, and I have also checked the ~/.bashrc to make sure they are set correctly (which they are). I cannot seem to figure this out. Any insight that can be provided would be greatly appreciated

Can you please provide the following information: what's the IP addresses of the workstation and the laptop's wifi interface? Which ROS_MASTER_URI settings were you using?

Did you do "ssh -X turtlebot@IPaddress" ? I'm not sure this will help... but when going through the tutorial, I found that it did.
