seneye recomned the following two modules for use with the seneye web server in order to connect to your router if it is too far away to connect directly.
If you have a pond or aquarium a long way from your router but on the same power circuit an ethernet over power adaptor may be better than wifi.
Edimax N300 Universal Wi-Fi Extender
L.E.D. light modes
This set of instructions below is our version to get you up and running as fast as possible.
You do not need the CD to get the edimax running and set up.
Do not connect anything to the edimax ethernet port during setup it will prevent the final step of set up.
The easiest way is to plug the edimax in to a power socket with nothing attached to its Ethernet port.
If you have tried to set anything up I would recommend resetting the edimax to factory setup.
To reset the edimax press the WPS and hold it for over 15 seconds until all the lights have changed.
When the lights change you should then see a new wireless network called edimax from your phone or PC under wifi connections (if not ‘scan’ for available wifi networks) . If you don’t see the connection straight away leave it a few minutes to fully boot. If after 5 minutes or longer you don’t see it and it has its power lights on try a reset as described above.
Attach to the Edimax wifi connection to your phone or PC by selecting the “EdimaxEXT.Setup XX”
When you have selected the edimax connection it shoudl show up as connected on your phone.
Launch your web browser and type "edimaxext.setup/" into the address bar (not search bar).
Then press the get started button shown in blue.
Next select the mode of set up we recommend the middle one (bridge).
Next select the wifi router you want to connect to.You can also see signal strength on the router you are connecting to.
The next step is to enter the password for your wifi network. Remember the password will be case sensitive.
Then click next.
A connection test in now performed.
If you get the password wrong you will get this screen - DO NOT APPLY IT - go back and enter the password again.
If teh set up is successful it will look like below and have a green tick. You can then press apply.
If you see the screen below you have set up your edimax router. The edimax wifi will now disapear off your devices wifi list.
Connect back to your normal wifi network.
