How do I make software changes to my 48/3000/35 Easysolar to accept Ryobi RGN2500B?

I have read Multiplus Genrator FAQ and cannot access 'Disable UPS mode', 'Enable Dynamic Current limiting' or 'Weak AC' through Color Controller to make software changes to accept my 2000W 8.33A generator. It is not recognised at all despite setting Input 1 to generator. I assumed Easysolar came with easy BT or WIFI interface. Do I have to purchase additional hardware to make such changes?

I am running offgrid 240V in New Zealand. I have updated software to latest version by Ethernet through USB connection to my mobile data on Tablet. Since update I have been unable to access internet. My system has been registered on VRM. I don't have access to local Victron support so are configuring myself.

I got a 600Mbps: 5GHz 433Mbps, 2.4GHz 150Mbps that supports 802.11 ac standard wifi dongle but this has not been recognized by system. I have USB connected my phone and have been unable to access any internet or VE Configure settings.

I have an internet connection and the firmware and software have updated. VictronConnect provides same data as Color Controller so by all indications it is connected. I am just unable to access the VE.Configure. However, tonight the system recognized the generator on input 1 briefly, then lost connection. Interestingly, that was when I did a reboot and the Bluesolar Charger MPPT 150/70 had not appeared in the device list.

Does this mean anything?

I have internet connection through my Samsung Tab A (2017) and the laptop via USB tethering or mobile hotspot.

Thank you for your advice.

I have wifi running through laptop (mobile hotspot/usb tethering from my tablet actually).

The unit has been able to update its software but that is as much as I am able to achieve.

I am still unable to access VEConfigure to make adjustments for my generator.

I have connected my laptop via VE.Direct to USB interface and loaded VEConfigure3 and the latter does not access the port to my unit. Software has been updated. I am doubtful VictronConnect is giving correct data. The VRM login page has only data from 2-months ago.

Am I missing something?

I am considering a LAN cable into my Laptop, would that have better connectivity?

You need a MK3-Interface to change the settings without internet

OR

an internet connection to use Remote VEConfigure
