Set up as access point

I am trying to set up my wireless bolt as an access point to wirelessly connect to my PLC. I am having troubles getting it to connect to the network after many attempts and even trying a factory reset. The bolt I am working on was previously connected to the network until a plantwide network upgrade.

Hi @DaleP,

It sounds like the corporate firewall is blocking the Bolt’s access to the network. There are a couple of things that you can try:

  1. Make sure to follow these instructions in this Application Note:

    The MAC address to use will be the MAC of the PLC.

  2. Use a second Bolt to create a wireless bridge as explained in this Application Note.

  3. Check with IT to see if they can figure out the setting on the firewall blocking the Bolt.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
