K-s1 , flu card and the ipad4

I am having issues viewing my images on my ipad4 , imported from my k-s1 via flucard.
Firstly it is near impossible to view my photos as the IP address ending 1.1 is rarely accepted a message appears stating my wi- if is turned of.
There seems to be conflict between my wi if and Pentax flu card .
Also when I access the wireless image transfer in the menu an error message appears stating I should insert a wireless card , this when FLU card is inserted.
And lastly on the rare occasions I have managed to access my photos my ipad4 has frozen as soon as I view my first photos .

Has anyone else experienced similar problem or can they direct me to somewhere to a guide .

Are you looking at the eye-fi options? The flucard is accessed exclusively via your web browser, once enabled.

Our guide for the flucard can be found here:

Adam pointed you to some very valuable instructions!

A tip I'd add is that you can also access the FLUcard (after connecting to it as the wifi network for your device, of course) by typing
into your browser address bar, if the IP address ending in 1.1 is troublesome for you.

Next, change the channel setting (described in the instructions Adam linked to) to channel 9 or 10, as I've found the first four are usually the most crowded (my office has 20+ signals coming in), and 11 is frequently the default for other wi-fi devices that create a "hotspot." YMMV, but it helps me out a lot, and I've been using the FLUcard quite a bit on product photoshoots at client locations lately.
