W-03 is preferred although if you can wait a bit, the W-04 is hitting the market which will drive the cost of the W-03 lower.

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

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

I jumped in on the W-03 @ $44cdn. Arrived this afternoon. Installed the FlashPap java program ran the setup process for station mode & everything worked first time :-).
But I am going to use it in Access Point Mode as I want to be able to use it while I'm on the road for 3 months.
Thanks for the help.

I got it working on my Dreamstaion in STA mode using the setup process from FLASHPAP.
I then tried the AP mode & this I had trouble wih & am still not sure I have it working correctly, after the d/l Sleepyhead would report that it was up to date Thinking-about . So it is a work in progress in the AP mode.

If your computer is normally connecting to your network or the internet via a wireless connection, using the AP mode will require your computer to be disconnected from its normal setup to allow it to connect it to the Flashair.  After the download, it is suppose to reconnect back to the normal setup.   The disconnecting and reconnection seems to be the Achilles heel of the AP mode.   I suggest that the Flashair be setup in the Station mode (STA) to eliminate all the extra processes.   The Station mode has a proven record for being a stable and reproducible connection.

Hi Crimson

Need step by step instructions for Mac please.

First, the disclaimer.  I'm a Windows and Linux nerd.  I never had the money to afford a Mac.  Big Grin
Experienced Mac users please jump in here at anytime.
  • Section 1 - Things you need to know:
    1. Your wireless access point's SSID(name).
    2. The password to connect to it.
  • Section 2 - Determining your internal network IP range (numbering system):
    (If you know your internal IP address range then you can skip this section.)
    • Method 1
      1. Click on the Apple icon on the upper-left corner of the screen.
      2. Scroll down and select System Preferences.
      3. Click Network. This should be on the third row.
      4. Select your connection. Typically you will be connected to the network via AirPort (wireless), or Ethernet (wired). The connection you are using will say Connected next to it. Your IP address will be listed directly beneath your connection status, in smaller print. Note: Your active connection will typically be selected by default.

    • Method 2
      1. Open the Terminal. This can be found in the Utilities section of your Application folder.
      2. Use the ifconfig command. The normal ifconfig command will result in a lot of data displayed that is not necessary and a little confusing. The following command will remove most of the unnecessary stuff and display your internal IP address:
        ifconfig | grep "inet " | grep -v[2]
        This command removes the entry, which will always appear regardless of the machine you are using. This is the feedback loop, and can be ignored when looking for the IP address.

  • Section 3 - Selecting an Available IP Address Number
    For this example, I'm going to use a 192.168.1.xxx network range.  The "xxx" can be a value between 1 and 254.  
    1. We are looking for a number that is not assigned to another device.  The response that we desire is an unreachable or not connected response. (I don't know what a Mac's actual response is)
    2. At the command prompt in the Terminal window, issue this command:  ping -c3 192.168.1.xxx  The "xxx" should be substituted with a number, other than your Macs IP number. . . also avoid the numbers 1 and 254 (they are usually assigned to the router). Note: If you forget to use the "-c3", press the CTRL-C to stop its responding.
    3. If your computer returned a value like, 192.1683.1.10, then try replacing the "10" with the value "20" and see if it's available.  Likewise it your IP is a "100", try a "200".   This may speed up finding an available IP.
    4. Once your found an available IP go to Section 4.
  • Section 4 - Configuring the FlashAir
    1. Insert your FlashAir in the Mac's SD card slot.
    2. Open its directory and navigate to the SD_WLAN directory.
    3. Open the CONFIG file using your favorite text editor.
    4. Copy and paste or type it in the following:  (Note:User supplied responses highlighted in blue)

      IP_Address=192.168.1.xxx (From Section 3)
      APPSSID=Access Point(SSID) Name(Section 1)
      APPNETWORKKEY=Your Password Here(Section 1)
      APPNAME=DSAUTO(Unique name)

    5. Save this file to the SD card.  Make sure that you save it using a CR+LF type of line termination.  Linux and Unix text editors typically only use a CR for line termination.
    6. Close out of the directory and unmount the SD card (if that happens on a Mac)
  • Section 5 - Connecting to the FlashAir
    1. Remove the FlashAir for your computer.
    2. Insert it into your CPAP and allow it to initialize.
    3. On your Mac, Open your web browser and type in the IP address of your FlashAir.
    4. If all has gone well, you should see a directory listing and no further action is required. You can now follow the FlashPAP instructions to setup this card as well.
    5. If not, back to the drawing board and go through the steps above.

I hope this may help.

Hi Crimson

"Open its directory and navigate to the SD_WLAN directory." I do not have this folder in the Flashair. Only DCIM and GUPIXINF folders are there. The P-Series folder is from Dreamstation.

Do you know how to get the SD_WLAN directory setup?
