Upgrade to a wifi router

Hey there,

I’d like to add my Mox the modules/addons to turn it into a Wifi router.
I have a Mox with modules A + F (the Cloud set).

What should I buy to sort it out ?

Thanks

Hi @dadall,

you have following options to add WiFi functionality to your setup:

MOX Wi-Fi add-on (SDIO)

  • This module can be plugged to the module A - no additional module is needed
  • Can be used to create either 2.4 or 5 GHz WiFi network
  • People on this forum are reporting issues with this add-on when using the 5 GHz frequency

MOX Wi-Fi add-on (mPCIe)

  • This add-on offers better performance and I havent seen any complaints on this forum
  • Disadvantage: You need to buy additional modules (B or G) to connect it with your MOX

It is important to understand that none of the add-ons allows to create 2.4 and 5 GHz network at the same time. You need to have 2 add-ons to achieve this. In my case I have the SDIO add-on for 2.4 GHz network and mPCIe add-on seated in the G module for the 5 GHz network.

Next to that, you might be interested in modules C or E in order to add some RJ-45 ports for your wired devices.

Happy routing! :slight_smile:

SDIO card can’t support multiple SSIDs.

Thanks @viktor! I wasnt aware about this limitation. Another reason to go for mPCIe add-on.

Thanks @dkomrska @viktor! I know what to do now :slight_smile:

I have to warn you that I have quite a bad time running A+G+F configuration right now, as evidenced by my dmesg log: Modules G+F interoperability

It depends if you run a NAS on your MOX. If you do, just be aware of my warning.
