                             WiFiDir Wireless WiFi Telescope Control For Skywatcher / Orion mounts:  The adapter has 2 modes of work: TTL Mode and RS232 Mode Connected directly to the mount`s body bypassing the Synscan hand controller (with the switch in TTL mode) Connected to the Synscan hand controller (with the switch in RS232 position) In both cases the adapter is autopowered from mount`s or Synscan hand controller. You will need tu use the apropiate software depending if you connect via mount`s body or Synscan hand controller according to this table; For LX200 - Style Mounts. Include LX200 LX400 LX600 Classic / GPS and other Meade mounts with 6 pin RJ11 RS232 port. For this mounts the adapter must be in RS232 position to work. How it works: The adapter creates a TCP data conection between the software and microcontroller, the conection settings are made from the adapter web interface, to enter the configuration pages you need to connect to WiFiDir ssid and type on your browser the adapter IP address, by default is: the default password is “password” You can change then the adapter settings to mach your aplication or change your aplication settings to mach the adapter settings. The data conection is made throught the adapter configurable “Data port” Web server port is only used for serve the configuration pages and should be 80 or 23, can be config to any but 80 & 23 are the standart web ports that browsers check firts when you enter a IP address. The adapter can work as access point (smartphone conects to the adapter) or as station (the adapter connects to you wifi network). For station mode “Static IP” option from WiFiDir adapter must be unchecked unless your previously configured your router to accept the adapter Static IP. Restore default settings: If you enter wrong credentials for your ap in station mode or you do not remember them, the adapter can reboot with default settings in this way: About 0,5 seconds after power on the module press the "RESET" button for 4 seconds, then release the button, the adapter will reset automatically with default setings.
