I'm trying to get my laptop to connect to an EZBv4 and my regular wifi at the same time. Which I can actually do, since I am using a USB -> WiFi adapter.
However, my network is also in the 192.168.1/24 range. I thought I would just connect to the EZBv4 and change it's IP scheme/address and all would be fine. Nope. No options to. After poking around looking for a firmware update, it seems there isn't one. I Don't see a firmware version on the main page, though apparently I'm supposed to. presumably, that means I'm up to date.
I found 2 articles here dealing with firmware:
Firmware Update Question With Ez-b V4
Ez-b V4 Firmware Error
Side note: I work for an electronics company and updating firmware is a routine task, so I am loathe to assume I'm on "the latest" firmware, especially if I don't know what my current version is and what version "the latest" is.
I could conceivably change my network IP scheme around, which is something I've been wanting to do, but I don't want to do it right now.
Can the EZBv4 change it's network scheme in AP mode?
Do I need to telnet into the (presumably) Linux side and change a text file in there?
Can you even telnet in to the Linux side?
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
You could put your EZ-B in client mode and attach it to your network, then no conflict.
If there is some reason you can't put it on your network, see the post from DJ about 3 hours ago in this thread: http://www.ez-robot.com/Community/Forum/Thread?threadId=7229
Apparently the firmware on the wifi chip can be modified with an inexpensive piece of hardware. Presumably you could use that to change the IP address.
To expand on what Alan had mentioned - I am releasing the WiFi firmware opensource for customization. This means you can do more than simply change the default AP IP Network - you will also be able to customize the entire wifi web GUI, etc..
I should have the files and instructions up this week, stay tuned!
I thought that saying something like "The Ezbv4 Can Have Any <whatever> You Want, As Long As It's <this specific value>" would be immediately apparent that I was joking. I've heard the saying used referring to colors of products, so I didn't make it up. If it wasn't clear, I was trying to be cute, since there's currently no way to change the IP address in AP mode.
Putting the EZBv4 into client mode would work for now, but once I get going with programming this, I'll be taking it to work with me, so constantly switching networks would be a pain.
I'll wait to see what happens with the wifi release.
This is the router I used, but it does suffer from the slow DHCP reply issue referenced in the linked thread, so if used with multiple EZ-Bs it may not be the best option. With only one EZ-B and starting the computer first, it is fine: http://www.amazon.com/TP-LINK-TL-WR702N-Wireless-Repeater-150Mbps/dp/B007PTCFFW/ref=sr_1_11?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1446342978&sr=1-11&keywords=tp-link
I have the same problem as yours, my router is working in the 192.168.l.l range. EZBv4 will work also in this range
What is the solution for this ?
iezrobot has a great tutorial for their product here: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/Lesson/80?courseId=4
