CyberQ Wifi Switching Modes Between Home and Away Configurations

Mode Switching

As we have seen above, a key improvement in firmware v2.3/3.1 is being able to store parameters for hot-spot or infrastructure linking away from home and infrastructure linking to your home network, then easily switch between locations. You can accomplish the switch either from the WiFi setup page, or from the unit, using the display and keys.

If you remember to change at the end of your cook, you can click the link for Wifi Setup. In the top table, select WiFi Settings and change the value to the type of connection you will use next. Click the Submit Values button, and the next time you power on the CyberQ it will start in the mode you selected.

If you need to change when you are turning the CyberQ on, here is the procedure for switching from the control unit:

  1. Press and hold both the up and down arrows until the display shows System Setup. 

  2. Press the right arrow key to go to the Wifi Setup menu. 

  3. Press the down arrow twice to EDIT: and press the center button. 

  4. Press the down arrow to change the entry to Home or Away, then press the center button. 

  5. Press the down arrow once more to LOAD: and press the center button. 

  6. Press the down arrow to change the entry to Home or Away, then press the center button. 

  7. Unplug the controller and plug it back in; it should restart in Hot-spot mode
