For online installation open SSH connection via Putty and go on with next commands.

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 see example below.
Configuration files are saved in /etc/ directory
