Blinking Blue:

Grill is transmitting the Memphis Grill Wi-Fi signal. Go to your phone’s Wi-Fi connections and look to see if the Memphis Grill Wi-Fi network is available. It should appear for example as: “Memphis Grill AB:CD” (last four digits are unique to your Wi-Fi card and are the last digits of the MAC ID address).

 

Solid Blue:

This means you have clicked on the Memphis Grill Wi-Fi, and the grill is now awaiting input of your SSID (home network name) and password (network’s password) your home network password cannot contain non-alphanumeric characters such as: #$&. If you clicked the Memphis Grill Wi-Fi and the provisioning page did not automatically appear, go to your phone’s web browser and type in “www.wificonfig.com”. This should then pull up the provisioning page.

 

Red and Blue Blinking:

This means you have tried to update your Wi-Fi card’s firmware and there were no files found on the USB. Please ensure that there are the correct file (firmware.bin) on the USB, and if there are, and the card will not accept the USB please contact customer support for a preloaded USB with the correct Wi-Fi firmware on it.

 

If the provisioning page (SSID and PASSWORD) does not automatically open when you select Memphis Grill in your Wi-Fi settings on your device, you will need to open any browser and enter the URL www.wificonfig.com.

 

The provisioning page should appear and you will be able to search for your home network, select it and then enter the password for your network.
