Linking the CyberQ Temperature Control to a Wi-Fi Router in Infrastructure Mode

Linking the CyberQ to a Wi-Fi Router in Infrastructure Mode

This procedure should be performed while you are in range of your Wi-Fi network. To set up a link from scratch, proceed with the following steps:

  1. Power up the CyberQ and wait until the display shows Pairing in Hot-spot Mode. 

  2. Press and hold down the UP and DOWN arrows together to enter SYSTEM SETUP mode. 

  3. When >SYSTEM SETUP is displayed, push the RIGHT arrow to enter WIFI SETUP mode 

  4. Press the DOWN arrow twice to >EDIT: and push the CENTER button. 

  5. Press the UP arrow until Home is displayed, then push the CENTER button. 

  6. Press the DOWN arrow to >LOAD: and push the CENTER BUTTON. 

  7. Press the UP arrow until Home is displayed, then push the CENTER button. 

  8. Scroll down to >SCAN WI-FI and push the RIGHT arrow. 

  9. When you see Networks Found followed by a number, scroll to your Wi-Fi network name and press 
the CENTER button. 

  10. Press the LEFT arrow to go back to WIFI SETUP. 

  11. Scroll down until you see SSID: (Your Network Name should be selected) 

  12. Continue to scroll down to KEY: then push the CENTER button.
  13. Enter your Wi-Fi Network password using the directional arrows (UP for numbers and upper case, 
DOWN for lower case, RIGHT to move to the next character). Leave the cursor on the final character. 

  14. Press the CENTER button to save the password. 

  15. Unplug the unit and plug it back in. The display will show IP ADDRESS INFS CONNECTING. 

  16. The unit should now connect to your network and will briefly display the CyberQ’s Network IP 

  17. To find this IP Address again, press and hold down the UP and DOWN arrows together to enter 
SETUP mode. 

  18. When >SYTEM SETUP is displayed push the Right arrow. 

  19. Scroll down to just below the >SCAN WI-FI and you will see the CyberQ’s Network IP Address. 
(This should look something like 192.168.1.XX or 10.0.0.XX) 

If the display shows NO LINK, it usually means there was an error or mismatch in one of the entries. You will need to repeat the procedure, making sure that your SSID name and password are exact matches.

Once you get an IP address, your CyberQ is now successfully linked, and you can access it by accessing the web browser of a smart device on your network and typing the CyberQ’s Network IP address into the address bar. That will bring up the CyberQ’s Control Status Page. However, one more step is required; to make the CyberQ’s IP address constant, which is convenient for general operation and required for port forwarding. To do this, you need to enter your router’s firmware and find the section dealing with DHCP addresses. With some routers, this function is located in the LAN setup section, while other routers have a section for DHCP assignments.

What you are looking for is a list of the devices that are attached to your LAN, or a tab called IP Allocation. In some cases, there will be a checkbox that lets you define a device address as reserved, while in others you may have to click an add button and define a reserved location, selecting an address or device from a drop-down box, perhaps even entering a MAC address. Whatever the methodology, it will probably be harder to find the list than to change it. Also, some routers (like recent Belkin models and the Verizon Wireless MIFI 6620L) do not apparently have the ability to reserve an address.
