Can't Connect

I recently purchased the developers kit for my son. We made a simple roli type robot and tried to connect to the ez-b v4 for the first time tonight. I cannot get it to connect. As far as I can tell I need to change the connection mode, but when I click on the circular icon in ez builder, it takes me to a page that asks for my username and password (unlike in the tutorial). I enter my ez robot username/password, which it says isn't correct, but I don't think it's even an ez page. I'm stuck. Please help. *stress*

welcome! sounds like you have not connected to the wifi network

The webpage you see that asks for a password is actually your router. You don't want that. You need to connect to the ez-bs wifi network and then go to ARC.

OK, so we got the ez-b v4 connected to the computer, but then everything disconnects from the internet. I changed the mode, still no luck...

@SV, once you power up the ezb go to you wifi connection on your computer then connect to the ezb4 list, once connected connect using ARC.

Then click on the radius button that opens the webpage to the ezb4, select client mode then enter your routers SSID and password.

It will reboot the ezb4 then just reconnect with your computer and you will have Internet access is well

You can use the ping button or look in your router config to see what IP address the client is now getting put that in the ARC and you're good to go

I just powered up my ezb, and the little voice said, "I have successfully connected to your network.", and the light flashes green, but I can't connect to it in the ARC, and I can't find it in my network list.

Did that, then I lost internet. So, I unplugged the ez and when I plugged it back in it did what I last described.

There is a button next to the radius button and it looks like an antenna click on that and start a scan by the way what IP address is your DHCP in your router set for if it's 192.168.0.one then you will need to change The IP address in the connection box to 192,168,0.xxx you might even have it set for 10.address check that and see how you do

Here's the tutorial for connection types for the ezb: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Lesson/15?courseId=5

Yes, you will lose connection to the Internet in adhoc mode. If you have ever purchased any iot devices, this is the default mode. This is how wireless technology works in default mode. There is absolutely no other way to configure a device via wireless connectivity that does not require connecting to it first.

Now that you have connected it to your network, follow everyone's instructions to scan and find the device on the network. The way networks work, is each device is given a random IP address from within a specified pool of addresses. The scan will find the ezb on your network.

Also, I should add that if you press the ? Question mark on the connection control, it will bring you to a page with a dozen tutorial that will be useful: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Help.aspx?id=171

Every control has a question mark. Also, every option has a question mark that you can hover over. There's a lot to learn but we made it easy and accessible:)

OK, I'm getting there. I've successfully connected to my ez-b and stayed connected to the internet. I selected DJ as who my question was resolved by, but truthfully all three of you guys are great, thanks so much. I'm gaining understanding and starting to see how helpful and useful the tutorials are. I'm sure I'll have more questions, but so far, I am very pleased with my ez robot purchase and overall experience. My son is very enthusiastic about robotics and I'm sure we'll keep going for a long while. Thanks guys.:D
