Easiest way to connect to FlashAir SD card using a static IP in Windows
Full credit goes out to ksmustang for this idea. I was having problems using SleepMaster to access my new FlashAir SD card in Station mode. I wanted the card to have a static IP, so I would always know where it is on my network. After configuring that in my router, I entered the IP into SleepMaster's IP field & attempted to find the card, but it always tried searching from the .121 subnet instead of using the IP I told it to use. After a bit of Googling, I came upon ksmustang's idea to map the card to a share drive. Perfect!

If you're new at network drives, just follow these instructions for yourself to find the Map Network Drive option in Windows Explorer.

When it comes time to enter an address in the "Folder" field after you've chosen your drive letter, just type it out like this (no quotes): "\\192.168.1.1\" but be sure to use the IP address you statically assigned to your FlashAir in your router! Also make sure those backslashes are facing the right direction!

If you'd like the drive to be always available, check the box saying "Reconnect at sign-in", and if you'd like that process to kick off faster, open an administrative command prompt and type the following (no quotes): "sc config webclient start=auto" which simply auto-starts your WebClient service each time you login. Otherwise, the first time you try to access the drive each bootup, it will take a moment longer to kick off that process. Regardless, that last step is purely optional.

Now whenever I click the CPAP Importer button in SleepyHead, it automatically finds the mapped FlashAir card as if it's plugged directly into my machine. Bonus! If it ever gives you problems, just check out your Windows Explorer (WIN+E) and make sure it doesn't have a red X next to the new network drive you've mapped.

You can set a static IP on the flashair card too. In the CONFIG file in SD_WLAN.

[WLANSD]
DHCP_Enabled=NO
IP_Address=192.168.0.16
Subnet_Mask=255.255.255.0
Default_Gateway=192.168.0.1



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

Welcome

The FlashAir is only available in an SD footprint. They have not released a MicroSD but who knows what the future will hold.

Good find =) Always good to have more options.

There are adapters to fit microSD cards into full sized SD adapters with wifi, but unfortunately I don't see any wifi cards in the actual microSD form factor. It all depends on the slot that's available on the machine itself. No need to rush or guess in your case-- just wait until the machine comes in and assess at that point, unless you already know the make/model. Worst case, you just pop the card each time you want to transfer.

You are right, we finally made a decision on a machine, it should be here Monday, then I will know for sure what is in the xpap. The model we ordered has Bluetooth, but I don't have Bluetooth on my laptop, so I may end up getting a Bluetooth USB adapter thingy??? That should work, right??? We have smartphones, but the only thing I know how to do on that thing is to swipe when hubby calls!!! *smile*

RE: Easiest way to connect to FlashAir SD card using a static IP in Windows
Cute =)

My machine has bluetooth, but I disabled it since it has a cellular module that transmits my data to my provider, which shares the data with the Philips DreamMapper app I used to use. That's good for them, but at this point I could care less about that since I'm using SleepyHead to view the data directly from the machine.

Anyway, disabling bluetooth works for my situation, but I'm not sure what machine you're expecting to see. In any case, I haven't heard of bluetooth being a solution for transferring machine data into SleepyHead.

RE: Easiest way to connect to FlashAir SD card using a static IP in Windows
Update: I've been using this method for about a week now, and it hasn't failed me once even though my FlashAirIII is two floors above me (townhome layout with computer in the basement).

However, I have noticed that the drive doesn't always seem to reconnect automatically when I login, or at least not in a timely manner. It might just be me being impatient, but sometimes I have to wait a minute and click on the FlashAir mapped drive a few times until eventually I see some files show up. At that point, I always know I can hit the import button in SleepyHead which sees the data instantaneously.
