I have my new PowerWall 2 instales but it’s not configured to my WiFi. How can I do that?
When you're installers get to Screen #1, they choose to do it via Ethernet or Wifi. If by Wifi, the admin screen (Screen #1 I think) displays all the nearby Wifi networks and they enter in the password for the appropriate WIFI network. If connected then it goes on to Screen #2, which checks for new software for the Powerwall. Many installers prefer to do Ethernet, but I asked my installers to do it via Wifi and he was successful.
Thanks. I will contact the installer to do that.
This can be done without additional hardware? I.e., without a bridging device? I guess what I'm asking is does the Gateway function as a WiFi device like any device, such as an iPhone or iPad, and can it connect to a foreign router in a different subnet, just by using the wifi password?
Yes, the gateway functions as a standalone WiFi host and via that can be configured to connect to the internet via a WiFi enabled router; hardwired to the router or even via its cellular radio.
Really,, I ,, this is really a conversation,,, I just do not know what to say.
If you change out your wireless router, how do you reconnect the gateway to the new router when yours is on wifi and not ethernet?
ditto to FloriaDave's question. Just bought a new wifi router and want to switch things over without having to pay my worthless solar installer for a service call.
Call Tesla Support. They should be able to walk you through on the phone.
