I’ve managed to get the WI-ME working and talking over the internet (no custom code) but I’ve got a few questions that need to be clarified.
We’re testing with a php script on our website which returns some characters through the serial port. For a test we killed the internet connection to see what it would return, but we observed no change on the receiving end of the serial port. It would be great if an error character/string was returned so that our device knows there is no connection to the internet. For example the Lantronix Xport returns an ‘N’ if there is no connection.
I’m not 100% sure on how a customer should be expected to set up their device. We can set it up initially so that everything is fine, but if they change their SSID and WPA key then the connection between the wi-me and the router is broken. Since we do not want a wired ethernet option that really only leaves the option of setting it up through the serial port. Is this doable and how do I manage it? Or perhaps there is a way for a laptop to connect directly to the wi-me to change the settings?
Thanks for any help,
