Guys I have a gen 3 wall charger & found out my electrician didn’t connect it to the internet. You apparently are suppose to scan in the ocr to connect to WiFi. The problem is it’s on the back of it. Since I wasn’t there when he installed it and threw away the directions I have no idea how to remove it to get to the back of it? Thoughts?

I had my electrician install the wall charger while I was at work and I didn't know about connecting it to WIFI until after I came home.

There was a sticker on the quickstart guide that has the SSID/password and a QR code for connecting to the charger's WIFI access point.

To connect to the access point, hold down the button on the charging handle for 5 seconds until the green light on the charger starts pulsing. Then scan the QR code or connect to the charger SSID manually from your phone. Then open a web browser and go to 192.168.92.1 and you will see the menu controls for the charger.

Same issue as you, had a Gen 3 WC installed yesterday by an electrician and he took the quickstart guide. No big deal, just use a 5/32" allen wrench to unscrew the fasteners (2 on top, 2 on bottom) and pop it off. Snap a pic of the info on the back and you're in business. Follow the commissioning instructions as vinceoxnard pointed out above.

Don't want to hijack this thread but the next issue I'm seeing is trying to access the config page via my home network. All I get is:

"Wall Connector cannot be configured on this network. Please follow installation instructions on tesla.com/wallconnector."

which seems to be the default per the latest firmware. Ugh.

The Gen3 WC has been out for almost 18 months with no software activation. Meaning connecting it to Wi-Fi is currently pointless other than having it ready for the software update to actually enable it. Who knows when and at this point even if, it will ever be enabled. I have never heard of a Wi-Fi connected device that is completely disabled for this long.

Consistent with other parts of the Tesla ownership experience.

My rule of thumb for the past 5 years or so is never purchase any device based on claims that a firmware update will give me critical functionality for my use case. As a result I've been much happier with many of my purchases.
