Configuring the WiFi Module
Purchase a WiFi Configuration Kit to Configure the Wireless Network of your choice and set your password.
This is done through Base Station Software (a free download) and makes configuring the device simple. Just put the Wi-Fi Module into the Configuration Kit, attach the
USB port of the Kit to your Computer and open the Base Station Software. After a few clicks simply fill in the information for your wireless
network and the module will run through a series of commands and you're ready to control your board. For more information on Wi-Fi configuration see
Configuring the Wi-Fi Module.
When using this board over the internet and outside the Local Area Network, Port Forwarding will be required. Port Forwarding is a protocol
used by your router to allow incoming requests for connections to get through to a specific device on a specific port. Below is
an example of how it works. In this example a router has been setup to forward incoming requests for port 2101 to the device at the IP Address 192.168.2.19
on port 2101. Now when any device that tries to access this Port on the External IP Address the router will see the request and automatically forward the request
to the device at the IP Address of 192.168.2.19 on port 2101. If this Port Forwarding rule was not in place and a request came in on port 2101 the router would
not know which port or device to forward it to and the request for connection would be denied. Note: Port Forwarding will not be necessary when using this within
a Local Area Network. For more on Port Forwarding with detailed instructions for every router visit:
board is led free and RoHS Compliant. If your requirements are for RoHS compliant parts this board is manufactured with RoHS compliant
led free parts and solder.

Wi-Fi Configuration Kit
Configuration Kit (ZigMo) plugs into the UPS port on your PC and will mount as a COM port. The ZBT module will pull
off the board and can be installed in the ZigMo for configuration. Using Base Station Software (a free download) select your wireless network,
set the password and the module will run through a series of commands and the module is ready. Reinstall the module on your board and the board
is accessible through your Wi-Fi network.
