    Programming your radio

    This guide will show you how to use the 2017 FRC Radio Configuration Utility software to configure your robot's wireless bridge for use outside of FRC events.

    Before you begin using the software:

    1. Disable WiFi connections on your computer, as it may prevent the configuration utility from properly communicating with the bridge
    2. Make sure no devices are connected to your computer via ethernet, other than the wireless bridge. Note that for the OM5P-AN and AC bridge, you must use a particular Ethernet port. See the on screen image and instructions for more information.

    The OM5P-AN and AC use the same power plug as the D-Link DAP1522, however they are 12V radios. Wire the radio to the 12V 2A terminals on the VRM (center-pin positive).

    Note: Teams will need to update firmware on both OM5P-AN and OM5P-AC radios in order for the programming utility to program them, or for them to be used at events. This must be done before you attempt to program them.
