The RT-Range Hunter/Target originally came with an internal wireless router to allow communication between the vehicles. In the RT-Range S Hunter/Target, there is no in-built WiFi and the WLAN communications is taken care of by RT-XLANs (or similar products). It is possible to setup a communication link between the WLAN of the RT-Range Hunter and RT-XLANs by re-configuring the wireless router of the RT-Range Hunter.
Note: only expected to work for RT-XLAN v1 (purchased before December 2018)
