K4-PB Wifi setup confusion

I purchased two Kulp K4-PBs. One of them I need to configure with a wifi dongle in FPP. How do I setup the dongle in FPP when I can't communicate with it? I am able to configure with USB to Ethernet, but wlan setup is not available unless dongle is plugged in. Pretty sure I fried one board by miss-reading the note taped to the bag. My fault. Can I plug in a USB hub so both usb to ethernet and dongle can be plugged in at the same time? Manual seems confusing to me. Afraid to mess up a second board. Some direction would help. Thanks

If your wi fi adapter supports AP Mode,  then you can log in directly to the FPP "hotspot". It is in the manual under Wi-fi tethering.

That is a new feature in version 7!

Yes you can.

What part is confusing? 

If to err is human, I am more human than most people.

Makesure you are looking at the correct  version of the manual. Are you using version 6?

I have all running now.  Connecting Ethernet adapter and dongle to USB hub was the solution.  I did end up re-flashing the SD image before this.  Think this resolved one problem and allowed all to work together again.   Thanks for the help.
