asus RT-AC68U connect to Nikon WU 1a wifi


Hi all, I have a Nikon wu a1 wifi dongle and I would like to connect it to my asus router to be able to see it in my home network.
Is there any way to do that?
Thanks

From the description and manual the adapter works as an access point versus managed mode. Many embedded devices have the functionality i.e. act as an AP for initial setup to connect to an existing wireless LAN so it's possible assuming the wireless adapter is capable.

I'm guessing that unless someone has reversed engineered the firmware to add the feature your out of luck at the moment.

One might change the mode of the router to connect to this access point.

I assume michaelk is correct, didn't read manual.

Also a cheap dd-wrt device should be able to do that.

Good idea. I would think it uses something fairly simple for a file transfer protocol. Once connected you could scan for open ports and see what happens.

So here is an app for android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....nikon.wu.wmau
and here is a howto:

I found no official howto/documentation about it, just this one. It looks like the dhcp server on wu 1a cannot be switched off at all. I tried to connect using WDS mode, but no luck. Probably I will try another router to do the job.
