SolaX Pocket WiFi Set-Up
Plug in the Wi-Fi dongle into the Wi-Fi port at the bottom of your inverter. Go to your PC or Mac device and open the Wi-Fi settings. Connect to the network named SolaX ######. Once connected, access your web browser, this could be Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer etc. In the URL bar at the top, type the IP address 188.8.131.52 and press enter.
A box will pop up asking for a username and password, type ‘admin’ for both. The next screen will appear, click the ‘DHCP’ tab. In the box titled ‘SSID’ click the blue ‘Find AP’ button, a list of Wi-Fi networks will display, you will need to select your local home Wi-Fi network.
Your local network should now display in the ‘SSID’ box. You should also see a number appear in the ‘IP Address’ box, if you do not see this then the connection has not been successful. A possible reason for this is that you are connected to the 5GHz version of your network. Click ‘Find AP’ again and select your local network that is not the 5GHz version and then click ‘Save’. Check the IP address box again and the number should display. If this still have not been corrected, contact your local SolaX office for further advice. The Australian phone number for SolaX is 1300 476 529.
Once your local network is showing in the ‘SSID’ box and the IP address number is showing, type in your Wi-Fi password into the box labelled ‘key’. Please note, if your home Wi-Fi network has any special characters or spaces in it, they will be replaced by %20 by the system. You will need to manually add the spaces and special characters in. Once complete, click the ‘Save’ button.
