wifi module for AS1289 ?
« on: 2019-06-11, 22:23:47 »
Can the AS1289 use the same wifi module as the RC1258. Is there a header in the AS1289 for wifi and is there info for installing wifi in the AS1289.

No it's not possible, you need a external Wifi client with a ethernet interface

Thanks Mike.
The TP-Link Model TL-WR702N Nano Router operates as a WIFI client. I tested it and have it functioning with the the AS1289 and now have wireless connectivity from the AS1289 to my router. The specifics are TP-LinkModel TL-WR702N, Firmware 4.18.114 build 130314. I don't know if later builds work. I did read one note that said build 130318 does not work.

I also looked at the information for the TP-Link AC750 Wireless Portable Nano Router (Amazon $34 same form factor as the WR702N) and it also has a wifi client mode that should also do the trick. I have confirmation from a user that it works.
