Hi all, I have one of these kits and have run through some basic atmel training material and all is good so far.

I dont have much experience in the wifi field but what i am trying to achieve is to create a gateway using the kit for wifi and also connect a silabs si4463 via spi to the kit for a local network at 433MHz.

Talking to the 4463 which is a transceiver operating at 433MHz in my application is all sorted.

So my naive question is how do i set up the  ATWINC1500.

Was thinking that maybe an access point but dont think that would work as i need to be able to access the gateway via the net through the household wifi network.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Paul

It would seem that Atmel don't have anything published yet:

Sadly, this seems to be typical of their recent offerings.

So you're probably going to have to contact Atmel direct, and/or your Distributor(s) for support...

Hi awneil, thanks for the reply.

Actually there is info available via the extension manager in AS6.2 which gives several examples.

My question is how do i configure my module in a home network configuration that will allow the home wifi network to access it ?

Dont think it should be configured as an access point.

Sorry if i am using the wrong terminology but i am new to this so hence the post

 

Regards

Paul

No dont mean that at all. 

Was just helping another person out.

I got it from my local FAE.

 

Would still be interested if anyone could help me with my question.

 

Regards

I think your local FAE is likely to be your best bet!

Dont think i will bother my FAE with this as its a generic question really.

So figured some freaks have set this type of thing in a home network

More reading and maybe i set the board up as a wireless client.

There is example code in studio 6.2 for this.

Any comments ?
