Help
General Directions (1) Start by powering down the PICOwatt® you wish to configure using this procedure.

(2) Enter the appropriate values for your IP network. Once complete, press the apply button and save the network configuration file, picowatt_network_setup.txt, to the top level folder or directory of a USB Flash drive. Do not change the file name, or edit the file manually. Changing the file name or editing the file manually will cause the automatic setup to fail. Any existing wireless settings will not be changed on failure.

Note: The USB thumb drive used to save your network configuration file should be formatted with the FAT32 file system and this formatted file system cannot be encrypted. If your computer or work environment utilizes or requires encrypted file systems, please make sure you temporarily disable file system encryption for removable devices such as USB thumb drives.

(3) Once the network configuration file is saved to your USB Flash drive, insert the USB Flash drive into the USB device connector on the PICOwatt® unit you wish to configure. Power on the PICOwatt®.

(4) Assuming the PICOwatt® can find the network configuration file on your flash drive (this could take some time), the settings will be loaded and the unit will reboot. Please wait a few minutes for the Wi-Fi LED to glow indicating that the Wi-Fi settings have been successfully configured.

Note: The network settings will not be changed if the network configuration file is not found or the network configuration file is damaged in any way.

(5) Access the PICOwatt® administration web site. Assuming you can successfully access the administration web site, you can remove the USB Flash drive.

The following describes the various values you will enter into the form above.

PICOwatt® Serial Number The 12 character serial number assigned PICOwatt®. This value can be found printed on the bottom of the enclosure.
Wireless Network  
Wireless MAC Address Media Access Control address (MAC address), a unique identifier assigned to this PICOwatt® Wi-Fi network interface. This value can be found printed on the bottom of the enclosure. Note that this value is also the PICOwatt® Serial Number.
Wireless Network Setup - DHCP Use this setting if your network has a DHCP server that assigns dynamic IP addresses to network devices such as PICOwatt®.
Wireless Network Setup - Static IP If you want to set a permanent or static IP address for this PICOwatt®, then select the Static IP option.

Note: If you select the Static IP option, then you must complete the following fields: Static IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway, and Primary DNS Server IP Address.
Wireless Static IP Address Enter a unique IP address that will be used to access the PICOwatt®.
Wireless Subnet Mask Enter the subnet mask of your IP network.
Default Gateway Enter the IP address of the default gateway for your network (in most cases, this is the IP address of your router).
Wi-Fi  
Network Name (SSID) The SSID (Service Set Identifier) is a name that identifies a particular 802.11 wireless network. Since a wireless network can contain multiple SSID's, enter the SSID specific to the wireless network this PICOwatt® will join. The SSID is case-sensitive and must not exceed 32 characters (use any characters on the keyboard). For added security, you should change the default SSID of your router to a unique name.
Security Mode - Wi-Fi Security Disabled If you do not want to use wireless security, select Wi-Fi Security Disabled. This mode of operation is strongly discouraged.
Security Mode - WPA2 Personal AES WPA2 is a more advanced, more secure version of WPA. WPA2 supports two encryption methods, TKIP and AES, with dynamic encryption keys. PICOwatt® will try both encryption methods, however it will prefer to use AES.
Passphrase (Shared Secret) Enter the key shared by the PICOwatt® and your wireless router or access point. It must have 8-63 characters.
Domain Name System (DNS)  
Define Domain Name Servers? If you are configuring a static IP address for your network interfaces, you must define the Primary DNS Server IP Address; for redundancy, it recommended that you define at least the Secondary DNS Server IP Address. If you are DHCP to configure your network interfaces and wish to override the DNS Server IP addresses inherited from the DHCP server, you can define a Primary DNS Server IP Address; for redundancy, it recommended that you define at least the Secondary DNS Server IP Address.
Primary DNS Server IP Address Your System Administrator or ISP will provide you with a Primary DNS (Domain Name System) Server IP address.
Secondary DNS Server IP Address Your System Administrator or ISP might provide you with an optional Secondary DNS (Domain Name System) Server IP address. This entry is optional, click Yes to add this entry.
Tertiary DNS Server IP Address Your System Administrator or ISP might provide you with an optional Tertiary DNS (Domain Name System) Server IP address. This entry is optional, click Yes to add this entry.
Quaternary DNS Server IP Address Your System Administrator or ISP might provide you with an optional Quaternary DNS (Domain Name System) Server IP address. This entry is optional, click Yes to add this entry.
Network Time This section includes Network Time Protocol (NTP) settings.
Add Additional Time Servers? By default, PICOwatt® uses well known, public time servers. If you wish to add additional local servers, or if this PICOwatt® is on a closed network with no internet access, click yes. You can add up to 3 additional NTP time servers. Note that if you elect to add time servers, then you must add at least 1 additional time server.
Time Server 1
Prefer If "Yes", this time server is "preferred" over other servers. While the rules do not forbid it, it is usually not useful to designate more than one time server as preferred. If more than one time server is added and designated "preferred", they are used in the order entered (time server 1 down to time server 3).
Domain Name or IP Address Enter the fully qualified domain name or IP address of the time server. Must not exceed 253 characters.
Time Server 2
Prefer If "Yes", this time server is "preferred" over other servers. While the rules do not forbid it, it is usually not useful to designate more than one time server as preferred. If more than one time server is added and designated "preferred", they are used in the order entered (time server 1 down to time server 3).
Domain Name or IP Address Enter the fully qualified domain name or IP address of the time server. Must not exceed 253 characters.
Time Server 3
Prefer If "Yes", this time server is "preferred" over other servers. While the rules do not forbid it, it is usually not useful to designate more than one time server as preferred. If more than one time server is added and designated "preferred", they are used in the order entered (time server 1 down to time server 3).
Domain Name or IP Address Enter the fully qualified domain name or IP address of the time server. Must not exceed 253 characters.
Optional Wired Network  
Configure Wired Network Settings? The Wired Network Settings are used to configure an optional USB Ethernet Adapter allowing you to easily connect your PICOwatt® to an Ethernet network. The adapter would plug into the USB Standard A port of your PICOwatt® and includes an RJ-45 connector that provides a 10/100BASE-T network connection. Note that only certain USB Ethernet Adapters have been qualified to work with your PICOwatt®. If necessary, please contact Tenrehte for more details.
Wired Network Setup - DHCP Use this setting if your network has a DHCP server that assigns dynamic IP addresses to network devices such as PICOwatt®.
Wired Network Setup - Static IP If you want to set a permanent or static IP address for this PICOwatt®, then select the Static IP option.

Note:
If you select the Static IP option, then you must complete the following fields: Static IP Address and Subnet Mask.
Wired Static IP Address Enter a unique IP address that will be used to access the PICOwatt®.
Wired Subnet Mask Enter the subnet mask of your wired IP network.
Wired Default Gateway Enter the IP address of the default gateway for your wired network (in most cases, this is the IP address of your router).
Restore Factory Default Settings? Click Yes to restore your PICOwatt® to the factory default settings.

Note:
If you wish to restore your unit to the factory default settings, this and Confirm Restore Factory Default Settings should be the only settings entered. Any other configuration settings entered using this tool will be cleared once your PICOwatt® is restored to the factory default settings.

This configuration item will be accepted by PICOwatt® software versions v1.012018002001000 and above. Earlier software versions will ignore this configuration item.
