    Once the logger is connected to the internet a 6-­digit code will appear on the logger’s screen that can be used to register the device to DicksonOne.

    Note
    When you connect the DWE logger to Wi-Fi, the logger will only use Wi-Fi, and will not use ethernet even if the device is still connected to an ethernet cable.

    Connect Logger to the Internet via Wi-Fi

    Go to Support > Network Configuration App on your DicksonOne account or go directly to https://www.dicksonone.com/network-configuration-app.

    Download and install the appropriate version to your computer (either MacOS or Windows).

    Open the application.

    Connect the the USB cable to the mini-USB port on the DWE logger and connect the other end of the USB cable to an open port on your computer.

    Make sure the logger is connected to the power source via the AC adapter and is powered on.

    Click on Wi-Fi.

    Wait a moment as your device will reboot so that it can switch from Ethernet to Wi-Fi mode.

    Select your Wi-Fi Network and click Next.

    Review, confirm, and select the appropriate Wi-Fi Settings and password, and then click Next.

    Once your device finishes connecting to the network via Wi-Fi you will see check marks in each circle.
