Filtrete Web Interface:

There is also a very basic web interface to configure the WLAN settings directly if you know the IP address.  This will be http://192.168.1.1/ for the initial configuration, or the current IP address if you’d like to change the WLAN settings.

FiltreteDirectStatusSelecting the Advanced option in the top corner goes to the advanced page which provides the interface for WLAN network configuration.

FiltreteDirectAdvancedSelecting Cloud Service Configuration then updates the configuration to the cloud service to allow remote access to the thermostat.

Public DNS Servers

Public DNS servers are a great resource when you are somewhere that does not have a reliable DNS server.  We were recently at a trade show and needed DNS, but had no idea what we might see when we got there.  So I just set it up with a public DNS.

There are lots of Public DNS servers out there including the about.com Public DNS Server List list , but I just decided to go with Google’s DNS Servers.

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:

  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4

The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:

  • 2001:4860:4860::8888
  • 2001:4860:4860::8844

Google also has an excellent document on Using Google Public DNS for those who need extra help setting it up.

The Public DNS Servers are a great resource for the Internet Community and I thank them for making them freely available.
