Wireless Help from Roberts Distributors

Nikon WT-2 Wireless Transmitter
Greeting to all from Indy...where we are getting ready for the Brickyard.

The big news is a comprehensive guide to Nikon image transfer...

A series of new articles have been posted to Nikon's Technical Support Knowledge Database regarding setting up and troubleshooting the WT-2 Wireless Transmitter. Many of you have asked for a single "cheat sheet" for this product, but it made more sense to divide the information into several articles, each of which deals with a distinct functional area.

The "main" article, "Configuration of the WT-2 Wireless Transmitter" can be found at:

This article incorporates links to two other articles, based on which communication mode is going to be used: PTP/IP or FTP. These two articles list step-by-step "checkpoints" that take the user through the installation process. At each step of the way there are hotlinks to articles with detail on that particular setup process.

In all, there are eight of these setup process articles, based on the computer operating system (Macintosh or Windows), the communication mode (PTP/IP or FTP), and the network type (AdHoc or Infrastructure). Here are direct links to those articles:

Mac - FTP - Ad Hoc

Mac - FTP - Infrastructure

Mac - PTP/IP - Ad Hoc

Mac - PTP/IP - Infrastructure

Windows - FTP - Ad Hoc

Windows - FTP - Infrastructure

Windows - PTP/IP - Ad Hoc

Windows - PTP/IP - Infrastructure

Further, articles have been posted that address "Installing the Wireless Connecting Utility", "Installing Internet Information Systems (IIS) - Windows" and "Setting Up FTP Service - Macintosh", as well as a general troubleshooting guide and FTP diagnostics page.
