Initial Setup

Initial Setup

1.Prepare storage.

-Choose a MicroSD card or USB storage.

-Make sure the storage device is formatted with one partition, FAT32

or FAT64 (exFAT).

NOTE: FAT32 may be used for storage capacity up to 2TB. FAT64 may be used for storage capacity up to 4TB. USB hard disks with large sector size will not be compatible. Most retail USB hard disks larger than 2TB will have the large sector size.

2.Connect one storage to the WiFi Drive Adapter.

-The WiFi Drive Adapter only supports one storage device at a time.

-If a MicroSD and USB storage are attached, only the MicroSD will work.

-The unit will not support multiple USB storage devices or hubs.

-If a USB storage device with independent power is connected, use the storage device's power supply to power it.

3.Connect the unit to a router using the provided ethernet cable if desired.

4.Connect power to the unit.

5.Use a wireless device with a web browser to connect to the WiFi Drive Adapter.

-Use the Wireless settings on the device to locate the network.

-The WiFi Drive Adapter's default Wireless network name will be “Addonics_WDA” followed by some numbers.

-The default wireless password is “12345678”

-This step may be skipped if the unit is connected to a router using ethernet.

The following steps are optional if customization is desired:

6.Open a web browser and connect to the WiFi Drive Adapter's Web Interface.

-If connected using wireless, type 192.168.99.1 into the address bar and press Enter.

-If connected using ethernet, refer to your router's DHCP Clients table to discover the WiFi Adapter's IP address. The unit's default hostname will be “Addonics_WDA” followed by some numbers. Type that IP address into the address bar on the web browser (instead of 192.168.99.1) and press Enter.

-The web interface will ask for a username and password. Type “admin” into both (without the qoutes).

7.Change the device name if desired.

-This will be the unit's Wireless Network name, as well as its Windows Network name.

-This setting is found in the “System Setting” menu.

8.Change the Web Interface password if desired (recommended):

-the default password is “admin”

-the setting is “Admin Password” in the “System Setting” menu.

-This setting only affects the Web Interface.

9.Change the Date and Time if desired (recommended):

-The setting is “Date & Time” in the “System Setting” menu.

-Change the Time Zone before setting the date and time.

-“Sync from internet” is enabled by default.

Locating the WiFi Drive Adapter on the network

Always refer to the WiFi Drive Adapter using its IP address. If connecting to the unit using wireless networking, the unit's IP address is 192.168.99.1. If connecting to the unit using a router it is attached to using ethernet, refer to the router's DHCP clients table, or use the static IP address configured in the web interface if the unit was configured for Static IP.

Using the WebDAV Interface

To access the WiFi Drive Adapter's storage using a web browser, connect to the WiFi Drive Adapter's web interface, then click the WebShare menu. From there, click “disk1.” The attached storage device's entire contents will be shown on the next page.

To open a folder on the storage device, simply click on it.

To download a file, click on the filename, or to save it to local storage right-click(or on Mac systems,Control-click)the filename then choose your browser's “Save As” menu option (such as “Save target as...”).

Clicking the Options button on the top of any page opens a small menu, where a folder can be created (“Create Folder”), or return to the Web Interface main menu (“Go Home”).

Clicking the option button on a file or folder's line opens a small menu where that item may be renamed or deleted.

Using the SMB Server:

On Windows:

Open a Windows Explorer window, then type two backslashes “\\” followed by the WiFi drive adapter's IP address (see “Locating the WiFi Drive Adapter on the network”). Then press Enter. Next, open the share “disk1.” The attached storage will then be available with full permissions.

On MacOS:

From the Finder menu, choose “Go” then pick “Connect to Server...” In the Server Address box, type “smb://” followed by the WiFi Drive Adapter's IP address (see “Locating the WiFi Drive Adapter on the network”). Then press Enter. Next, open the share “disk1.” The attached storage will then be available with full permissions.
