Air!Squitter Network Connectivity

USB Network

PC via Mini USB

Air!Squitter provides USB network connectivity. On Windows 7, Windows 10, IOS and Linux it will install a network adapter. In this mode, Air!Squitter is accessible under http://air-scout.radar or http://192.168.73.1 (will be changed to airsquitter)

This is the easiest way for users of above operating system to access and configure the Air!Squitter.

Note: In order to get the 2D maps, either the host PC must have an internet connection or the Air!Squitter has to be connected to internet via wired LAN or as a WiFi Client.

LAN Network Connection

PC via LAN

As a regular network device, Air!Squitter can be connected to a ethernet LAN. By default it uses DHCP and is accessible under http://air-scout.local http://air-scout.fritz.box (see above) or under its IP address, which can be monitored in the OLED screen. Static IP address can be configured in the web configuration menu, too.

WiFi Client Connection

PC via LAN

In order to avoid network cables, or wherever a LAN cable is not feasible, Air!Squitter is able to connect as a client to a wireless network. The configuration dialogue provides the network SSID and password. Static WiFi IP address is possible, too.

Air!Squitter can be configured to work as a WiFi access point. Mobile devices or laptops then can connect to the Air!Squitter directly.

The SSID and password of the network that becomes created can be set up in the configuration dialog.
