Wi-Fi Settings

Find these settings:

The following settings are available:

  • Wi-Fi Mode:

    • 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_warning-wtNote: 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).
