Wi-Fi hotspot

Wi-Fi models of the x500 can simultaneously serve as a Wi-Fi client, where it connects to the internet via Wi-Fi, and as a Wi-Fi hotspot, which can be used to:

  • Wirelessly access your machine while you are on-site.
  • Wirelessly access the internet. (More information: Allow machine access to internet.)
  • Wirelessly connect machine components.

Configuration

The Wi-Fi hotspot can remotely be enabled/disabled from X4 Remote. The next steps show you how.

  • Open the Fleet Manager app, which is accessible from the Apps menu  in the top right corner if you are currently in a different X4 Remote app.
  • Open the main menu  , go to Devices  , and select the concerning device.
  • Expand the Network  options and go to [LAN].
  • Tick the box [Enable wifi hotspot] in the “Wi-Fi hotspot”-section.
  • Enter the network name (SSID), set a password, select your preferred channel, and press [Confirm changes].

You have now made the changes in X4 Remote, but these are not yet active in your device. You will need to push your changes to your device for them to take effect.

  • Click [Push config to device] in the top right corner.
