A IT buddy of mine has told me that any time you go from a cable to WIFI your speed automatically halves!
So for those that have the BM close by (i.e.: 12m+-) should run a blue cable and save themselves a heap of speed issues...
At home we're putting all PCs back on cable so that the only things drawing on the WIFI band are phones and iPads!
Just for general information...

Where does the ethernet cable go on the BM?

There is no rj45 connector. The WiFi module connects to one of the other connectors. I think it is just some sort of serial connection between WiFi module and BM

Pretty sure it's just a USB connection...

Yup looks like you are correct, looking at the manual, I can't identify what the actual connection is to the BM but not USB. I stand corrected.

No problem. Today i received a new connector for the wifi antenna. From the letter that came with it i understand that it should improve wifi range

Its like a male-female sma connector. So i think the connector makes a better electrical connection or it has to do with impendance matching for the antenna

I also received this connector after i contacted Speidel about the poor range,the first impressions are that this small connector fixed the range issue !!!
I can connect to the SSID i want and after the network scan i see a lot more SSID's

Cheers,

Hi,
Is this possible with Wifi Module:
- to pilote "manual mode" (change temperature, activate/deactivate pump, activate/deactivate heater) ?
- switch from manual to recipe mode ?

Can we do the same thing remotely than in front of BM ?

I don't find clear answer for that.

Thanks in advance,
JBrew

When I asked about the Wifi module from the distributor that I purchased my 10L from he said that it is only a monitor for now. That is to say you can only look and see what the temperature is and the mode. There is some talk about being able to update firmware on the controller with the wifi device. It is too bad they don't make a ethernet cord for the Braumeister, but maybe the module is making a network interface and cord would require a module in between the BM and a switch anyway.

Speidel has aspirations of control and maybe logging onto a computer, but until then $100 is staying firmly in my pocket.

For less money one could buy a video monitor and even see the video stream from outside your network, if you are fine leaving your BM alone and going to the store.

I have just bought a wifi module. It allows you to update firmware, monitor and remotely control it.

It gives you an IP address to log on to. On this webpage is a duplicate of your Braumeister screen. You can press the buttons on the webpage as if you were stood in front on the Braumeister. A useful feature - when a brew is started is that it also shows the full recipe times, temperatures etc in a side screen.
