Re: Does Explore Stars only work on WiFi for a PC running Windows? #ExploreStars

Wade:

The PMC-8 box associated with the Exos2 has a wifi module which will do either TCP or UDP.  The Iexos wifi module only goes one way or the other.

The serial port is not TCP or UDP, it is a direct serial connection.

It would be cool to have both the serial port and the WiFi able to be used without switching the mode from serial to Wifi.  That would be a great suggestion.

But the WiFi modules are what they are, at least for now so their performance probably won't change -- Exos2 is ambidextrous, but the iExos is not.
