I received my IoTaWatt over the weekend and would like to thank you for the prompt shipping. One small problem was that the plastic case of the voltage transformer was busted open but everything looked to be intact and it seems to be working correctly.
However, I am having a problem with the setup procedure. On power-up the IoTaWatt does appear as an access point, blinks the correct red-green-green code and my computer does connect to it but then it takes a very long time for the ip address to to show up in the connection status window. When it finally is assigned an ip address the type is an “Automatic Private Address” and the address is 169.254.188.248 with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0. No configuration page is ever displayed. Also, at some point the blink code changes to red-red-green.
Do I need to enter an ip in the address bar or something in order to get to the configuration page?
Thank you for your work on this project and your assistance,
