Was able to scan QR just now with iPad….still didn’t ask for password.


There is no “login” password as one is not needed. When you connect to the wall unit you connect to the unique SSID and then enter the WiFi password, these are imbedded in th QR code or you can enter them manually. Since this is a WPA2 connection with a with a 12-digit password it is very secure.

Thanks so much for the explanation. I think I’m there!

Solid single green light on wall unit. Here‘s screenshot of UI

While I was on that page is when I opened a browser and entered the 192..address.
The screen asked me to choose the file to upload for the software. I had previously downloaded the update (it was a ****** BIN file)
I chose the file from my downloads and it updated. It may be a load sharing update but it MAY also contain non sharing updates.
 
New to the forum, new to Tesla. Haven't even gotten my Model S, but had the wall connector already installed :)

Electrician did it, install was very straight forward. Turn on the line, wall connector turns on and a single green light is flashing (I presume that means its SSID is broadcasting). On my phone I can see the Tesla wireless ID, I click on it, enter the IP address as instructed, and get into the menu. I confirm the electrical settings, connect my home network (it says connected), and check for new updates and see none. I see the power readings at the top of the menu page, all looks well. When I check the amp setting, 4 green lights light up, corresponding to my 48A connection.

Problem is, when I am done with this step and I shut the phone down, the single green pulsing light never stops pulsing. Nothing changes, it just pulses for what feels like forever, before I shut the circuit down.

I've never connected this to a car, I presume it'll work from a charging standpoint, but I need some advice.

I am using a Netgear Orbi mesh system, Wifi 6, and have great connection strength where the wall charger is.

Help is needed, trying to contact Tesla but making no progress.

Thank you,
Justin Blasberg
Tesla has a group of folks that specialize in dealing with home chargers. Their number is 877 961 7652. If you call that number and they don’t answer right away then you can request a call back. They should be able to help you. They walked me through the process and saved me a lot of trouble.
 
I think it's fixed now. The latest UI just doesn't give you any good feedback or instructions. There's no setup wizard, and it doesn't confirm when you change settings. Finally I just disconnected my phone and laptop from the self-broadcast SSID, and it did change the status light to a single solid green light several minutes later. It seems as long as any client is connected to the SSID it won't timeout and finish commissioning. Not the best or most intuitive UI for such a simple device, really.
Thanks, man, you answered my question, and mine is just like yours, no confirmation page after I finished setting up everything, it keeps showing a flashing green light. Once I followed your advice, disconnected my cell from self-broadcast SSID, 15min later, the LED turned to solid green automatic.
