Hi I am having trouble setting up my WEM3080T on my home wifi.
I did try 2 months ago but the device could not see my home ssid ( its location on the side of my house possibly ) anyhow I tried again today and the Wifi LED is constant RED and I do not see its SSID in my Iphone wifi whilst standing next to it. From my readings if the red light is on it have joining a wlan and the publishing of its own ssid becomes hidden.
Trouble is I do not see it in my "network" on my PC on the same local vlan, I do not see it having a DHCP lease from my router.
How can I hard reset this to start again as now I have an outdoor AP that it should be able to see.
You can temporarily turn off the WiFi of your router, and WEM3080T will enter AP mode after a while.
Hi, there are some additional introduction.
when the WiFi LED is on, it means the energy meter has connected to the AP successfully, then the device will enter STA mode from the AP mode(the AP named iMeter_sn would disappear).
If you want to find the device when it is in sta mode, there are 3 ways.
1 enter your router and find the IP in the DHCP pool.
2 use the ssdp discovery like this (in the same WLAN)
3 MDNS discovery. (in the same WLAN)
Please note, when the WiFi LED is on, it doesn't necessarily indicate that the IP has been allocated successfully 100%
If your router has specific security settings, it might accept the WLAN connection but fail to allocate an IP address to it. Please verify if the correct MAC address has been entered into the MAC table for the VLAN setting, especially if you've utilized VLAN in your router's configuration.
It's important to note that the device operates with different MAC addresses in AP (Access Point) mode and STA (Station) mode. Ensure that you input the MAC address of the STA mode into your VLAN setting, rather than the MAC address of the AP mode.
