- To connect your console to your wireless router and the Internet, you must first download the awnet app to your phone or tablet. The awnet app is only a console configuration tool and is not used to view your live data.The app is available here:Apple iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/awnet/id1341994564
Note: The most common mistake is to download the AmbientTool app, which is designed for the first generation WS-2902.
