If you're having trouble connecting a DAKboard Wall Display or CPU to your Wi-Fi network, here are a few things to check and confirm.

  • Make sure your Wi-Fi network and router are turned on.
  • If your Wi-Fi network is not showing up as an option, try rebooting your router.
  • DAKboard can only connect to 2.4GHz networks, so if you have a dual band router or access point, make sure DAKboard is connecting to the proper 2.4 GHz network and not the 5GHz network.
  • DAKboard should not be connected to unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Make sure you're security level is at least WPA2, and a Wi-Fi password is configured.
  • Make sure you're entering your network name and password correctly into DAKboard. Pay attention to any capitalization, spaces or special characters in the Wi-Fi password.
  • Verify DAKboard is not outside of the in range of the Wi-Fi network. Move DAKboard closer to your router/access point and see if it connects when moved closer. 


A few other advanced things to check:

  • Hidden SSID: If your network's SSID is hidden or set to not broadcast, you may need to temporarily unhide or broadcast this SSID to get DAKboard to connect.
  • MAC Address Filtering: If you've enabled "MAC address filtering" on your router previously, you'll need to disable it or add an exception for your DAKboard. Find your DAKboard MAC address here: How to find the MAC address

  • ICMP/ping: Make sure nothing is blocking outbound ICMP/ping traffic on the network, as DAKboard will need to ping a public IP address (8.8.8.8) to test for connectivity.
