The FlashAir can be controlled by changing /SD_WLAN/CONFIG. To activate changed settings, you have to restart the FlashAir by removing and re-inserting it.

There are hidden attributes attached to this directory, therefore you need tools to handle this hidden folder.

Please note that any setting changes made by config.cgi may take some time to be reflected in the CONFIG file. Restart the FlashAir, then change the CONFIG file.

Set the Wireless LAN mode. The following modes are available:

AP mode
In AP mode (i.e. Access Point Mode), the FlashAir behaves like a normal wireless access point - although with no direct internet access
The config file parameters APPSSID and APPNETWORKKEY set the SSID and Network Security Key respectively.i
The security mode is WPA2-AES.
STA mode
In STA mode (ie. Station Mode), the FlashAir becomes a Wireless LAN client. This requires another device to act as the access point.
The config file parameters APPSSID and APPNETWORKKEY set the SSID and Network Security Key respectively.i

Please refer to Advanced Tutorials - Using Station Mode for further information.
Internet pass-thru mode
In Internet pass-thru mode, the FlashAir becomes both a Wireless Access Point, and a Wireless LAN client.
This allows you to connect to the internet while also connected to your FlashAir.
If the card fails to connect to the second access point, only AP mode functionality will be enabled.
The config file parameters APPSSID and APPNETWORKKEY set the SSID and Network Security Key respectively.i
The security mode is WPA2-AES.
The config file parameters BRGSSID and BRGNETWORKKEY set the SSID and Network Security Key to use for the second access point.
Please refer to Advanced Tutorials - Using Internet Pass-Thru Mode for more information.
