PM1115UW doesn't hold WiFi settings
I want to connect a printer to the USB port and have it accessible on my existing WiFi, so I'm trying to configure it for Infrastructure WiFi and join it to my existing SSID but when it reboots, it's back in Ad-Hoc mode.
This is my second device as StarTec support said since the first one wouldn't hold the configuration, it must be a dud, so I replaced it. However the second device is acting the same so I'm thinking this is user error. I don't use Mac or Windows so need to configure this without the software. It seems like it is very possible to do this via the web interface. I set my laptop to a compatible IP address and can open the configuration page.
I click Setup and on the System page set a unique username and password, then save & restart. I reconnect, click Setup then Wireless and find my SSID in the list. When I click it, the page auto-fills with the correct info. I enter my Network Security key and click Save & Restart:
After restarting, I go to Status then view the Wireless tab and it shows that it's in Ad-Hoc mode again:
What am I missing? Is there another step to make the settings stick?
