      Sky SC201 wireless connector

      I have two old Sky SC201 wireless connector units, these are rebadged AirTiles products.

      I am dusting them off to make use of them and I have found how to access their built-in web interface to set them up manually. I can see they currently have firmware 1.0.7.4.

      Is this still the current firmware? Is there somewhere I can manually download the latest firmware?

      I have as a test managed to manually configure one and successfully connect to a WiFi network but I have also discovered that with at least the current firmware they don't like WiFi networks which use a password that contains spaces. I am hoping newer firmware might help with this.

      Re: Sky SC201 wireless connector

      The following address will give a report of the connectors configuration:
      http://skywirelessconnector.local/stbadmin?info
      I think that it is only available using the network connector. not Wi-Fi.
      AFAIAA the connector should periodically connect to Sky's server to check for firmware updates.
      As mine also shows firmware="1.0.7.4" I assume that there isn't a newer version.
      http://sc201.skyfirmware.com/timeche...product=skydsl
      should give a link to the update server and path if a newer version is available but it is just returning:
      [SC201]
      downloadHost=sc201.skyfirmware.com
      firmwarePath=/?mac=182861xxxxxx&firmwareVersion=1.0.7.4&model=SC 201&product=skydsl
      timetocheck=3600

      @seawright

      Thanks for the reply, it would seem there is no update if yours is in the same version as mine.
