7.02 Hotspot

The MDA interface is equipped with WIFI hotspot functionality.

The default WIFI functionality for the MDA is as a WIFI hotspot. By default the WIFI hotspot is broadcasting under the default WIFI network name (network SSID) mda-hotspot. This name might have been changed to something different. If so, look for the new WIFI hotspot name when trying to connect to the hotspot.

With a PC, Mac, tablet or smartphone, you can search for this WIFI network and connect to it, using the default WIFI password 12345678. (Note for WIFI hotspot use, that if your device is connected to a different WIFI network, you will lose this connection, as your device is only able to connect to one WIFI-network at the time, meaning you’ll lose your internet connection as well unless the MDA has access to the internet).

Through the MDA interface, it is possible to change the name of the WIFI hotspot network and/or the WIFI password. For more information, see chapter 6.07.

With the MDA interface, it is possible to connect the MDA to your own WIFI network (Setup menu, Network setup). When you have established a WIFI connection to your own WIFI network, the MDA wifi-hotspot will automatically stop functioning. The MDA’s hotspot will automatically start again as soon as you terminate the connection between the MDA and your own WIFI network. This can be when you manually disconnect by using the disconnect option on the network setup page, or when the MDA loses connection to the WIFI network; for example when the WIFI network stops broadcasting.
