We strongly recommend using a USB wifi dongle, ordered from us, which is tested and supported in IPLOG units.
1) Plugin WiFi Dongle into USB A connector
2) Download the OPKG package
Connect IPLOG with Internet connection or install the package in offline mode.
For online installation open SSH connection via Putty for example and go on with next commands.

root@iplog:~# opkg update
root@iplog:~# opkg install linux-fw-rtl-81xx

3) Reboot IPLOG unit
Now is WiFi Dongle ready for using. For configuration you can use appropriate configuration files or used configuration via web interface.
Configuration files are saved in /etc/ directory
hostapd.conf - is Host access point daemon
dnsmasq.conf - provides a DNS server and a DHCP server
wpa_supplicant.conf - is configured using a text file that lists all accepted networks and security policies, including pre-shared keys.
