Connecting via Wi-Fi

Establish a Wi-Fi connection between a mobile device and the device that you want to connect to.

Note

  • Be sure to connect your mobile device to the CBK-WA100/101 Wireless Adapter or a device supported by this application (hereafter called “compatible device”) via a Wi-Fi connection beforehand. If the compatible device is set to “AP” (access point mode), connect your mobile device to the compatible device. If the device is set to “ST” (station mode), connect your mobile device to the same access point as the compatible device.
  • A device that supports “ST” can connect to a mobile device via Wi-Fi tethering. Be sure to connect the compatible device to the mobile device beforehand.
  • When using an “ST”-supported device with the Camera Remote Control setting, set this setting to “Enable.”
  • When using a compatible device without an access authentication setting, step 4 is not required.
    Perform step 4 only when using a compatible device without a default access authentication setting or when the default access authentication setting has been changed.

To remotely control a camcorder

Set the camcorder to be the access point (AP) and remotely control the camcorder using a mobile device.

To upload a file from an ST (station mode) compatible device

Set the mobile device to be the access point (AP) and remotely control the camcorder, then upload the file from the camcorder to the server.

Set a mobile Wi-Fi router to be the access point (AP) and remotely control the camcorder, then upload the file from the camcorder to the server.

  1. Tap (Menu) – [Connect].
  2. Tap [Refresh].
    Compatible devices that can be connected appear.
  3. Tap a device to connect.
  4. Enter a [user name] and [password] which are set on the compatible device.

    If authentication is successful, the connection is established and the menu screen appears.

Note

  • From a security standpoint, we recommend changing your password regularly.
  • Checking the [Show password] checkbox in the authentication dialog box displays the input password as plain text. Be aware that this may allow your password to be intercepted by a third party.
  • On the next connection, step 4 is not required because the successfully authenticated user name and password are saved to this application.
    If you want to delete the saved user name and password, see “Deleting the Registered User Name and Password.”

Hint

  • To disconnect, tap the connected device.
  • To view device information, tap of the connected device.
  • When the network client mode of the connected device is set to on, the connection status of the network client mode is displayed. The connection status is indicated by 3 icons; (connecting(flashing)), (connected), and (connection error). To view detailed error reasons, etc., tap to display a screen with the NCM status.
  • Targeted network interfaces (Wi-Fi, Tethering, Wired LAN, No active I/F) are displayed on the top of the screen.
