    You'll need to program the "dangle" to be on your wifi network. If you go to the link and look at the downloads tab I believe there to be documentation there on how to do all of that.

    RenStick has its own complete assembly and user guide, like all the DIGWDF products. It does not include information on configuring your home wireless network, but it does include some helpful information about configuring the ESP module.

    It may be helpful to review DIGWDF's ESP Snap-In assembly & user guide as it includes screen shots of the ESPixelStick firmware settings.

    Thanks dirk,, I'm good with the stick itself, actually I'm love everything from the digwdf store,,,I was wondering if some one could help me with my pc to router setup. Right now i use a usb to cat 5 dongle to go to the renards and daisy chain them, everything is wired. I am just confused how to work a wifi router in there. Do I just use the dongle to cat 5 to the router, or do I use the ethernet port to the router.

    Thanks for the kind comments!

    If you use a USB dongle to go to the Renards, you're using a Serial connection. As such, your sequencer is using an output plugin that sends the sequence out the serial port. Sequencers can also send the same information out the network port, but it involves using an addition output plugin (often the J1Sys plugin) to send channel data to the network instead of a COM port. Then the wi-fi router typically will transmit data they receive that way. This is a very simplistic explanation because there's more than meets the eye when you deal with wireless networks, but it's essentially it.
