Setting Up Egg Wi-Fi Using Desktop App


I’ve created a short video below showing how to install and use the Serial Configurator desktop application to connect your Egg to a Wi-Fi network. For reference, the desktop application can be downloaded from here for Windows, Mac, or Linux. If you need them the USB drivers for an Egg can be downloaded from FTDI here. Some quick notes / caveats, Air Quality Egg:

  • cannot connect to 5GHz networks at this time (2.4GHz only).
  • cannot connect to Enterprise security schemas (only Open, WPA, WPA2 or WEP).
  • cannot negotiate Captive Portals; admin must make an exception by MAC address.
