How to change CUAV PW-link from server to client?



Title says it all really. I’d like to turn my PW-Link Wifi-module from being a server to a client, so that it can connect to a wireless access point that supports a high gain antenna. It’s been suggested to me before that this is possible, but with the absence of any instructions available for the wifi-module, I haven’t been able to figure out how to do it.

I’ve tried downloading the CUAV Hflight app to an Android phone and connecting to the module, but I can’t see any way to do it from there.

If anyone has any suggestions that would be great.

Thanks, Tom

Flash mavesp8266 to the device, connect to it, then open and change the mode to “1”. This will put the device into station mode.

Thanks very much for responding. I’m not sure how to boot the device in flash mode, and as there’s no manual anywhere for the device. I’d have thought that the firmware on it at the moment would host some kind of http web interface, but I’ve port scanned it and can’t find anything. I’ve tried using the CUAV Hflight app, which will connect to it, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to configure its client/server status (you can change between TCP and UDP but that seems to be about it).

Any further help very much appreciated.
