How to access the Firmware Settings

To access the firmware settings, the Scoppy app must have established a connection to the Scoppy firmware on the Pico W (ie. the connection badge at the lower left of the app screen should show a status of OK). For help with this see Getting started with Scoppy and the Pico W.

Tap the connection badge at the the lower left of the screen and then tap Connected device and then Firmware settings.

AP Password

The password of the Pico W access point.

AP Authorization Type

Station/Client

The Pico W will function as a Wi-Fi station (aka client). In other words, it will connect to your network just like any other device. This is probably the mode you want.

SSID

The SSID of your network’s Wi-Fi access point (or router or modem if these incorporate an access point)

Password

The password used by your network’s access point. This might also be referred to as a key.

Authorization Type

The method of security used by your access point. You should be able to find this in your access point’s settings. If in doubt use WPA2/WPA Mixed which should work on most networks.

Scoppy Access Code

Use this used to restrict who can access the Pico W when in station/client mode. See Wi-Fi Connection Settings for more information about connecting using an access code.

You will most probably want to leave this field blank.
