How to configure WiFi on my Mushroom Device?

If your Mushroom device is equipped with WiFi capabilities, you can configure the interface by clicking the Interface Index 1 in the WiFi WAN / Access Point on the “Home” tab of the UI, as shown below:

This will bring up the configuration dialog for the WiFi Interface.  There are 3 different modes of operation for the interface.  If the Mushroom device will be receiving its IP address from the current network infrastructure, the mode should be set to “DHCP” or “Static” depending on the IP addressing scheme desired. 

Alternatively, the WiFi Interface can be configured as a “Wireless Access Point” where it will advertise itself for use on the local network (LAN).

These three modes are discussed below:

DHCP Mode: (To connect to your home WiFi n/w or to your phone hotspot)

The WiFi Interface is expected to get its IP address from a DHCP server with the provided SSID/Key.  Available wireless networks should populate the field so you can choose the desired network.  Alternatively if you know the SSID you may enter it directly, along with the key.

Static Mode: (To connect to your home WiFi n/w or to your phone hotspot)

The WiFi Interface is expected to use the specified static IP along with the other specified network parameters:  Gateway Address, Mask, Primary/Secondary DNS, SSID, and Key.  Available wireless networks should populate the field so you can choose the desired network.  Alternatively if you know the SSID you may enter it directly, along with the key.

Access Point Mode:  The WiFi Interface will act as a wireless access point and advertise to the local network with the provided SSID/Key.  Note that scanning for available wireless networks is not enabled for this mode.  Enter the SSID and Key for the access point.
