    <Serial setting>
    Baud rate : 115200
    Data bits : 8
    Parity : None
    Stop bits : 1
    Flow : None
  4. If you have a SD card, the state of D4 will turn like this: White => White Blink => Yellow The following message prints out to the serial port.

  1. Run a command window and proceed with the ping test to WIZwiki-W7500.

  2. WIZwiki-W7500 operates as loopback server.

  3. Make proceed with the ping test or loopback test with an IP of 192.168.077.009 on WIZwiki-W7500.

    Necessarily, IP of the PC must also be set to 192.168.077.XXX.
  4. If you can do everything well, then your WIZwiki-W7500 doesn't have any problem.
