Yes, of course - and I greatly appreciate it!

the way it would work is that i would assign you an ip address and a port number then you can access remotely using that. You wouldn't need any OS specifics from my side.
Following your procedure everything works great: I connect to the device opening a TCP Socket (LINK led stop blinking and becomes fix), requesting and reading PID data. I tried this though iphone and using telnet through terminal on a macBook connected to the PLX (in this case no socket manual creation is needed).
The only problem is that, if I don't send command for about 10 seconds, connection is closed: "connection lost by foreign host" and LINK led starts blinking again. I have to reboot the initialization process in order to play again with ECU.
Here my initialization process:
1) open TCP socket to 192.168.0.10:35000 and save input and output stream objects (OR SIMPLY: telnet 192.168.0.10:35000)
2) start writing to output object:
OBD commands: example: 01 0C (RPM) and answer is right 41 01 XX XX.
If no commands, connection is closed as said.
I also tried to set the protocol with ATSP0 (auto) and ATSP3, ATSP4, ATSP5 and after that I set the wakeup time: ATSWFF (5 seconds), without success.
Someone can help?
Thank you very much.
OBDKEY is also $296 shipped to the US.
why would someone choose wifi over bluetooth? (honest question)
i thought it might be a price thing but they seem to be the same price....except that wifi is point-to-point so your sacrificing your internet connectivity.
I already have a bluetooth OBDKey [albeit one of the older ones, with a really low samplerate]; I was looking for a wifi one because communicating with it requires actual different code to be written [unlike the bluetooth ones, which are just serial by the time they get to userland.]

For a long time, the iphone had a hopelessly crippled bluetooth stack, so wifi was the only way to communicate wirelessly with it. I believe that that's the heritage of wifi dongles [I remember seeing devtoaster first using it and thinking that was pretty cool].
Isn't it still the case that you can't use the iPhone to communicate w/ non-Apple-approved Bluetooth dongles?
Currently the cost of Bluetooth modules is about half the cost of WiFi.
