WiFi Interface

The WiFi offers two operation modes. AccessPoint and StationMode.
You can switch between this modes in the hand controller.


AccessPoint

In this mode TeenAstro works like a wlan router.
You can connect this wlan with any device for example a notebook, smartphone or tablet.
Then you can control TeenAstro for example with SkySafari or ASCOM interface.
Or you can open the Webserver to configure settings.

The AccessPoint mode has a disadvantage.
If you are connected to TeenAstro you have no connection to the Internet.


StationMode

In this mode TeenAstro is connected to a wlan router.
In this case you connect a notebook to your wlan router as usual.
This has the advantage you get access to TeenAstro and you have a Internet connection as well.
But you have to configure this wlan network before in the Webserver.

01. Connect to the TeenAstro wlan with a notebook (the password is "password").

02. Open the Webserver and go to tab WiFi. Input "password" to enter the configuration.
