  • Re: Update on CyberQ WiFi vs Stoker WiFi

    I have had my Stoker for a few years and have been using it connected to wi-fi from the beginning without a problem.....I am not a technical person, I have a IMac, iPhone and an iPad and I have my Stoker connected to an Airport Express......I monitor my Stoker remotely using either the Stoker Status or BBQ Monitor.....I am cooking Pork Butts now and will be leaving my house for a few hours and will not worry about my temps because of the Stoker

    If you search around you will find that there are several access points that many have been successful with and the airport express is one of them. There is a linksys that many people have had good luck with...another words you got lucky. I haven't seen any clear documentation or list regarding which routers work and which ones won't. I have no clue technically what is causing this device not to work with some access points. Many people are having to run Tomato or DD-WRT code on their access points to get the stoker to work. In the end the airport express isn't a cheap access point. I would have been very unhappy if I had of had to add another $100 to my total purchase to get the stoker working. I luckily got an old wireless hub to work. It's wide open (no security), no other devices on it and it works perfectly 100% of the time. What I do find funny is that it's the EXACT same configuration I was running on all my other access points down to the IP range, SSID, etc...This access point works and the rest do not.
