Find these settings:
In the Wi-Fi tab of the DS Manager's Settings dialog;
On the Wi-Fi Settings page of the web interface.
The following settings are available:
Disabled — the Wi-Fi port is permanently shut down.
Enabled (on demand) — the Wi-Fi port activates and connects to an access point as soon as the Ethernet cable is unplugged; Wi-Fi port is shut down as soon as live Ethernet cable is detected again.
Enabled (permanently) — the Wi-Fi port is always active and attempts to stay associated with an access point at all times. Communicating through the Wi-Fi port still becomes possible only when the Ethernet port is unplugged. Wi-Fi communications are terminated as soon as live Ethernet cable is detected again. Compared to Enabled (on demand), this option allows for a swifter Ethernet-to-Wi-Fi switchover because it has the Wi-Fi interface ready and associated with an access point even before the switchover becomes necessary.
- Access Point Name.
- Security: Disabled, WEP64, WEP128, WPA-PSK, or WPA2-PSK.
- Password: This is the password for the access point.
- DHCP:(for the Wi-Fi port): Enables/Disables IP address configuration using DHCP.
Note: automatic IP configuration is not suitable for your system if the Wi-Fi port of your Modbus Gateway will be receiving requests from Modbus TCP Masters. In this case, you will need to assign your Gateway's Wi-Fi port a fixed static IP.
IP Address (of the Wi-Fi port):
With the DHCP enabled, shows the current IP address assigned to the Wi-Fi port of your device.
When the DHCP is disabled, allows you to set the desired static IP address assigned to the Wi-Fi port of your device.
- Gateway IP address (of the Wi-Fi port).
- Subnet Mask (of the Wi-Fi port).
