    Hi,
    I have installed the 4GB image.
    When I go to the information page on the EV3 it says that the
    firmware version is 1.0.0.0 and image version is also 1.0.0.0 and the mono version is 2.10.9.

    Is this the newest version?
    Because I am trying to get the EDIMAX wifi to work and I read somewhere that you need firmware version
    1.04 for that (but I cannot find that version for downloading).

    I can connnect to a wifi on the brick and it says success and gives me the 10.0.0.1 IP adress.
    But when I then try to run something from xamarin I simply cannot get a connection to the device (and I have installed all the plugins etc).

    Any advice on this situation and if it is a firmware problem or something else?

    The 1.04 part is only necessary if you want to use the stick with the official firmware.
    How do you connect? With wifi or usb? You have to adjust the IP if you use Wifi.

    Okay, so since I am using the monobrick firmware, not official, then that should work.

    Yes, as I wrote I use the EDIMAX and I also connect with that (wifi).
    Yes, I have already set the IP adress (10.0.1.1 as indicated on the brick in the infomation screen) in the
    Options->monobrick->Ip adress field in xamarin studio.
    But still it says not possible to connect when running a program.

    Okay, now I have answer for my own question – maybe it will help others.
    I simply rebooted the brick (with the monobrick firmware of course on the sd-card) and after rebooting it
    now got a different IP adresse for the wifi than 10.0.1.1 as it had before.
    And now it works!

    Okay great.
    So wifi works with the monobrick firmware, but I also now just tried to get the EDIMAX wifi to
    work with the EV3 firmware.
    But this does not work – not even with the lego IDE software.

    But my firmware (official lego firmware) is 1.06H, so shouldn’t the EDIMAX work on that also for wifi?

    The EDIMAX stick only works with the 1.04 firmware which is modified by fans. Lego didn’t include support for the stick.

    Why worry about version 1.04 when you have MonoBrick firmware :-)
