I have searched all over and can not find anything that works, at least not yet. I have a Samsung S3 phone and can not see the CyberQ, my lap top does which is great, but I still can not connect to the the CyberQ web page even on lap top. I am a complete moron when it comes to this stuff and banged my head on the wall all night long trying ANYTHING to get it to work on phone and or laptop. Any help me...

Ad Hoc or Infrastructure. If your having problems, start out with Ad Hoc.
first thing is in ad hoc, the CyberQ is its own wifi network. So whatever you do with your phone or laptop to select diferent wireless networks, your CyberQ should be detected. On my iphone, and mac its seen as a "wireless device". select that. If you didnt catch the IP Address that flashed during start up, by holding the up and down arrow at the same time for a couple seconds will jump you over to the network info (you might have to scroll right once or twice after your get there to find the group with that network info)
type that IP into your phone that is signed into your cyberq's network. and you should be there.

if it asks you for a password, the stock password will be 1234abcdef

Tried that to no avail..:(

did you buy it new or second hand?
12-05-2013 08:21 AM
Bought it new. Came with Smoker as an add on. From what I am reading Samsung wont support Adhoc. So I am running to Verizon store to see what they can do. Still not sure why I can not get to the CyberQ webpage from my lap top though...Maybe I should have listened in computer class...

Trade that S3 in for a Iphone 5S :decision:
what kind of a laptop?
12-05-2013 08:49 AM
Yeah that won't happen. Just upped contract 3 months ago and got this phone. Locked in for another 2 years. Just my luck...

No adhoc for us S3/S4 guys:x
Will only work in Infrastructure mode....I have found that only some droid phones where built with Adhoc. BBQ Guru built the platform to match IPhones (which all have Adhoc).

That sucks! So what you are saying Dano that I am screwed out on location using phone? I was hoping to leave cooker unattended in a field for a cook and sit back at home 20 miles away and monitor...Was the whole purpose on buyin it :evil:

Just a question but how were you going to get the signal 20 miles away? you would need internet access in the field to accomplish what you are trying.
are you saying you wanted to teather it somehow? and leave your phone at the cooker?

you could have a verizon mobile hot spot and run infrastructure mode I believe and do it

Yes I do think they need to make it more clear on their website that Adhoc does not work with Android devices.
I just got mine about a month ago and had no idea either.
Either way Adhoc I think is only good for 600-1000' cowboy so even if it worked with Android you can't control CyberQ from that far away unless you use infrastructure and have it go through a router.
