Can't find the post detailing the WiFi steps for the EZB4 ports to establish a connection.

I have found a few conversations, tutorials and activities that may help with your question. Take a look at these links. I've sorted them by what I believe to be most relevant but that is not always the case as I'm still learning.


Also, consider reviewing the Learn section for informative lessons and activities. Check it out!

On the top of the website is a menu item called learn. There is the first video on the page called "Getting Started With EZ-Robot Revolution"

Watch that video please

Robot-Doc,

I'm having the same issue.

I scan wifi and it does not find the EZB4.

You would think with all the delays and such, basic documentation would been
available for release date.

Lumpy, the delays were due to development - sadly we were not sitting around with free time Smile 18 hour days for ~20 months on the product you are holding in your hand.

The first tutorial videos will be up tomorrow as planned. The video editing and filming takes time - lots of time because there have been millions of little tweaks (as you have seen with EZ-Builder updates). We planned for the videos to be released tomorrow as that is about the time the EZ-B v4's start arriving at peoples homes.

We think of everything, did you ever doubt us? Geeez Lumpy Smile

DJ,

I've been a proud supporter of you product. Never doubted you guys.

Just feel a basic quick start tutorial could have been done up somewhere prior to today.

To me that would have been a no brainer.

I'll keep fumbling around with it.

Just anxious to get it working.

The getting started tutorial is on the learn page - first video. It's very detailed and walks you through every step Smile It's been there for months. You can access the learn page by pressing the learn button on the top menu, or here is a directly link: http://www.ez-robot.com/Tutorials/.

The first video on the page is a very detailed walkthrough of the EZ-B.

Tomorrow we will be putting multiple videos up that are split into separate parts.

#7

I guess I'll wait on the next video. The 24 minute video pointed to mentioned something about a reset pin and going ad-hoc and that a complete TCP/IP stack is in the new EZB4 but I have no clue how to access the web page in the EZB4.

I have also watched that learn Video in the past as well as earlier this evening. And didn't pull out the info I need.

#8

Robot-Doc, please watch the entire video and do not skip through it. I cannot help you if you do not watch the video. Start at 3:50, I clearly walk through how to connect. We have a few detailed videos releasing tomorrow.

Remember, the EZ-B v4 is not a COMM. The EZ-B v4 is Wi-Fi. Make sure you have updated to the latest EZ-Builder, otherwise it won't work.

Have you wondered why there is an IP Address in the connection space of EZ-Builder? That number 192.168.1.1? That is the IP Address of the EZ-B v4. Smile

Connect your laptop Wi-Fi to the EZ-B v4 and press the Connect button in EZ-Builder. It's that simple Smile

#9

OK, thanks DJ. I was making it too complicated by powering up the EZB4 then looking for a new ip address via my ASUS router webpage.

So basically I can connect to the internet using one wireless connection OR I can connect to the EZB4 using the EZ-B v4 3D wireless connection.

#10

Well, you can make it connect to your router as well - but you won't know how to do that until tomorrow Smile
