Right now it's green and orange. I have tried all the suggested way to get the OS 3 to connect. It has not been configured because I can't get it to connect to my wifi.

Similar issue here. I had issue with power and open case and pushed on connector and was able to get it to power in. Lights are yellow and green. One the same network. When I try to put UID in it says not in database or no WiFi connection

Slowly pulsing white now. still will not connect to my wifi. When I try to click on openspot 3 AP on my PC networks. It goes to a MSN news page????? on my phone when it gets to the connect page and I hit the connect button, it give me a spinning thing and says connecting. It either times out or just goes away.

White LED means the openSPOT3 is in Access Point (AP) mode, and it's broadcasting it's own Wi-Fi network called "openSPOT3 AP". In this state it does not connect to any Wi-Fi network.

What you need to do is to connect to this "openSPOT3 AP" Wi-Fi network using a phone/tablet/computer, and complete the initialization setup. The whole process is described here: http://manuals.sharkrf.com/openspot3/en ... steps.html

You can see the meaning of LED states on this page: http://manuals.sharkrf.com/openspot3/en/led-states.html

Green/orange LED means that the openSPOT3 is connected to your Wi-Fi network and is standing by.

Now you can open the web interface using https://sharkrf.link and set up the connection to a server using the web interface's Quick Setup feature. Make sure your browser device (phone/tablet/computer) is connected to the exact same Wi-Fi network you have configured for the openSPOT3.
