How to use the EZ-B Settings robot skill

This skill was created for schools or owners of many robots with dedicated WiFi network configuration. Use this skill to quickly change the WiFi settings to the connected EZ-B v4 inside the ARC software. If the reset button is pressed on the EZ-B v4, the WiFi settings will be set back to default. You can use this tool to configure settings for an EZ-B after reset rather than using the web configuration. With this skill your settings can be saved with the project and easily loaded to the connected EZ-B.

This is where you can enter a new SSID for your network

2. WiFi Password Text Field
This is where you can enter a password for your SSID. Leave blank if you don't require a password.

This is where you can enter a new System Name. EZ-Robot is the default.

4. WiFi Channel Drop-down
This is where you can select a new WiFi channel. Default is 11. The most common WiFi channels are 1, 6, and 11 because they don't overlap with each other.

3) Enter the new settings that you'd like the EZ-B v4 to have.

4) Click the Send Configuration button to push the new settings to the EZ-B v4. Then wait for the EZ-B v4 to reset and after connect to the newly named SSID (the old SSID will disappear from your WiFi Network list).

Question? What happens when your robot has multiple EZ-Bs?  Does this change the network settings for all the EZ-Bs in your project?  If not, how do you use this with multiple EZ-Bs?

One at a time I would guess.
You can have different names for each ezb.

Oh I also should add that I didn’t fully read your question. You were asking how to use this skill with more than one ezrobot wifi ezb at the same time. 

This skill doesn’t operate with more than one. 

to use more than one, simply view the web administration console for any ezrobot ezb with your web browser. For example, if your ezrobot ezb has an IP Address of 192.168.1.5, then open your web browser and type http://192.168.1.5 and press enter 

every ezrobot wifi ezb has a web administration tool. That includes the v4 and iotiny. More info about that on the manufacturers website @ www.ez-robot.com in their learn section
