[Coco] CoCo SDC and Toshiba FlashAir Card W-04

I'd like my card to connect to my existing AP (orbea2.4g) and then use 
SMB on my Mac (or Windoze XP, and yes, I still use WinXP) to connect and 
then upload .dsk files or delete .dsk files via a 'mapped SMB drive' 
(Flashair card in my CoCo SDC).

I can 'hard code' an IP address (, Subnet Mask 
(, Default Gateway ( and DNS Server 
( and also disable DHCP in the FlashAir's CONFIG file.

I won't be able to be on Discord tonight, I have a meeting to attend 
from 6:00pm to 10pm MDT.

Regards, Ed
