I am thinking of purchasing the Connect Wireless Stick. But I have a few questions.
Let me clear out something first. I do not intent to plug it on a PC. I intent to plug it on an electronic device that takes measurements from the environment and outputs a csv file to the root folder of a USB stick (in our case this would be the Connect Wireless Stick).
so my questions are:
(a) Will the Stick get an IP address (ie 192.168.1.100) automatically from my modem/router? How? Please note that my electronic device has no screen or keyboard. So all settings (if any) must be applied on a PC and then plugging the Stick to the electronic device. Is this possible?
(b) My electronic device has no option to store data-dumps to a certain folder of the USB Stick. It stores automatically all data on a scheduled basis on the root folder of the USB stick. Will these files be available to retrieve from my laptop? How? (e.g. by HTTP GET or by sharing the root folder of the stick with my laptop (running Windows) through Samba or other sharing protocol?). Is this procedure straightforward or will I have a hard time setting this up?
And finally, is this Stick the product that suits my needs or should I look for something else?
Thank you for your time. Any help would be grately appreciated.
