Three options are available to provide internet access to the charger:
- WiFi, and
- 3G/4G (optional feature, requires an accessory).
Automatic network configuration is enabled by default in this option via DHCP so the charger will obtain and set the network parameters automatically, provided that the network has an active DHCP server.
It is also possible to set these network parameters manually.
To connect the charger to a WiFi network it is necessary to switch on the charger’s WiFi connection by pressing the Enable button.
Then select the network you want to connect to from the dropdown list of available networks
and enter the password for the WiFi network. Press the Save button to save the configuration and connect.
The charger will connect to the network and the WiFi icon will be displayed. The number of bars on the icon indicates the quality of the link.
The network parameters are obtained automatically from the network’s DHCP server and can be entered manually.
The use of some special characters in the name or password of the WiFi network may not be supported. Regarding WIFI network features and/or password, Wallbox support UTF-8 encoding, i.e. printable ASCII characters
If the charger is equipped with a 3G/4G modem it can be configured in this screen.
Switch on the 3G/4G connection and enter the configuration parameters provided by the SIM provider. Then press the Save button to save the configuration and start the connection process.
Once a connection to the mobile network is established an icon will be displayed in the top-left corner. Note that this icon is static and does not indicate the quality of the connection.
Proxy. The charger can be configured to use a proxy server. By default this option is disabled. To enable this feature press Auto or Manual. For Auto, you only need to enter the proxy Server address. For Manual, you will also need to enter the proxy server port. Press the Save button to save the configuration.
