(Legacy) TP-Link access point setup (TL-WA701ND)
NOTICE: The TP-Link TL-WA701ND has been discontinued and replaced with the TP-Link TL-WA801ND. If using the TL-WA801ND, please refer to this article.
eGauge offers limited support for the TP-Link TL-WA701ND when configured for use as a WiFi bridge. This allows the eGauge to connect to the WiFi network at a location where wired Ethernet or PLC options are not practical.
Other usage scenarios are possible, but not officially supported. Support queries above and beyond those covered in the documentation below should be directly to TP-Link technical support.
The TL-WA701ND is ideal for use with the EG30xx eGauge hardware - the eGauge2 does not have an Ethernet port, and the EG4xxx hardware supports USB WiFi dongles which don't require an external power source.
