Toshiba FlashAir 2 with Flashpap configuration

that should be a "hidden" folder.
It might show up in the finder in the "go" menu .. or press (simultaneously) CMD + SHIFT + . (the dot)
(repeat that to hide them again)

It's normally a hidden folder. At least it was in Windows. Having said that, if your machine erased the SD card after you put it in, the folder was deleted. You can recreate the folder and create the CONFIG file in that folder. It's just a simple text file.


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

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 127.0.0.1[2]
        This command removes the 127.0.0.1 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)
      Subnet_Mask=255.255.255.0
      DNSMODE=1
      APPMODE=5
      STA_RETRY_CT=0
      APPSSID=Access Point(SSID) Name(Section 1)
      APPNETWORKKEY=Your Password Here(Section 1)
      MASTERCODE=00223f032dca
      PRODUCT=FlashAir
      DHCP_Enabled=NO
      APPNAME=DSAUTO(Unique name)
      COMMAND=fat cp /SD_WLAN/BCONFIG 1\:/BCONFIG
      LOCK=1
      APPAUTOTIME=0
      VENDOR=TOSHIBA
      UPLOAD=1

    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.

Managed to find the folder thanks to help from AlanE and TBMx. Question: do I overwrite everything with Section 4 configuration or add the lines after [Process Complete]?

Stuck here too Red... can't add the FlashAir Drive letter. When I click on "Browse for FlashAir card (after inserting), nothing happens... even after I remove and add in the flashair card.

I don't have a clue about macs .... BUT: you are supposed to EDIT that file - NOT execute it.

Since Linux is a "Kissin' Cousin" to OS X, I attempted the SD card setup in FlashPAP.   No Joy!    The drive selection step looks for a drive letter, this only works in Windows.  My Linux returns the SD address as /media/sg/FC8E-76EE.  You will have to use a text editor to setup the SD card in Linux.    I'm guessing that this will hold true for Mac (OS X) as well.

When you get to Step 7, enter the IP address that you assigned it instead of selecting the FlashAir Setup option. Jump to Step 10 to complete the setup.


Edit: Since my FlashPAP instruction post is rather long, I have edited my master copy but have chosen not to post the newer version unless required.

I was unable to read the card over the network when it was plugged into the PC.

I just took a leap of faith and configured the card, then dropped it into the Airsense.
When I logged into my router, there is was under the assigned IP.
I changed the hostname in the router, then did the same thing for my wife's card and changed her hostname.

Once I got both cards visible on the network I was able to map the drive letters, but you should be able to access by Hostname as well.

I am running DHCP on my router, but I hard-coded the IP addresses on the cards.  I used addresses in an IP block outside of what is used by DHCP, so if the router reboots while the machines are powered down, it won't assign the same addresses to one of our phones/TV's/etc...

Sorry before I reach step 7, how should I assign the IP address without setting it up?

Manually? I need to know if copy and paste the below content means replacing the entire content in my existing config file. Or do I just add to the last line because my config file doesn't have these setting to edit.

"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)
Subnet_Mask=255.255.255.0
DNSMODE=1
APPMODE=5
STA_RETRY_CT=0
APPSSID=Access Point(SSID) Name(Section 1)
APPNETWORKKEY=Your Password Here(Section 1)
MASTERCODE=00223f032dca
PRODUCT=FlashAir
DHCP_Enabled=NO
APPNAME=DSAUTO(Unique name)
COMMAND=fat cp /SD_WLAN/BCONFIG 1\:/BCONFIG
LOCK=1
APPAUTOTIME=0
VENDOR=TOSHIBA
UPLOAD=1"


My config file below:

Overwrite what is in your config file.
Keep in mind that once you reboot the card, it will execute the file and overwrite your password with *******, so if you make any additional changes you will need to put the password back in.

Copy everything in that list. Replace everything that is in blue type with your settings. Make sure that you use an editor that terminates each line with a CR+LF character or offers it as an option. Most *NIX system editors use only a CR character for line termination.
