To do that, please follow the below steps. Step by step procedure To follow this guide, you will need an SD card reader (check examples here). If you do not have an SD card reader, you can supply it from your local tech store. First of all, in the Yodeck Portal Monitor Settings, add your wireless network’s WiFi credentials to the Yodeck Portal 💡(Monitor Settings->Network) and click Save. Keep in mind that WiFi network names are case-sensitive. 2. Power off the player and remove the SD card from it.3. Using an SD card reader, place the SD card on your Laptop or PC and go to the SETTINGS.TXT file that resides in the first partition of the SD card.💡Ignore any pop-up messages. Find the SETTINGS.TXT file that resides in the first boot partition. 4. Edit the SETTINGS.TXT file, and add the same Wireless credentials in the relative fields “ssid” and “key”. Like those, you have set in Step 1. 5. Place the SD card back into the Yodeck Player and plug in the power cable. 6. After powering on the player, a blinking message “Configuring ” will display at the bottom right of your screen. Please do not unplug or reboot the player at this stage. If the WiFi credentials are correct, the player should connect to your wireless network without any issues. 7. Try to make some content changes to ensure that the player responds via your wireless network to the new pushed content. infoWiFi credentials obfuscationWhen the player connects to your Yodeck account successfully, the WiFi credentials in the SD card will be obfuscated for security reasons. If you edit the SETTINGS.TXT file again, you will see something like that on the “SSID” and the “key” text fields.ssid = <__e__AfdfERhoddfA__e__>key = <__e__WedghppaADEWV__e__>If you want to pair your player to a new WiFi network, delete everything in the relative fields (SSID, key) and type the new WiFi credentials accordingly, as you did in the Portal WiFi settings.No need to type anything like that: <__e__ssid,key__e__> .
