If you have a FlightFeeder Orange (you can tell if you have this because… it’s orange :wink:) you can enable wifi via the touchscreen.
If you have a metal-box FlightFeeder, the internal wifi is disabled because having a wifi transmitter inside a metal box right next to the ADS-B receiver is not a great idea. You can add an external wifi dongle if you need wifi; mail adsbsupport@flightaware.com and they can give you instructions.
