If you have not changed your Wi-Fi password, you will find your SSID and Password on:

  1. The magnetic Wi-Fi card that came with your router
  2. On the sticker behind your Wi-Fi Hub

If you have changed the wireless settings manually and do not remember your password, try one of the following:

  1. Use a computer that is already connected to your network
  2. If none of your computers are connected to the wireless network, connect via the Ethernet cable to one of your available Ethernet ports
  3. Type 192.168.1.1 into your web browser
  4. Enter the username and password (admin, admin), then select Sign in

              

  1. Click on the wireless card (circled below). The wireless page appears.

                   

  1. On the left menu, select the access point that you want to view.

  2. You can now update the Wi-Fi SSID and password
  3. When you have finished, click save

    You can use the Wi-Fi On/Off button (press and hold for 5 seconds) to switch your Router Wi-Fi capability on and off. This button is physically located on the top of your Wi-Fi Hub. If none of the above works, please do the following (recommended to connect via Ethernet)

The Wi-Fi Hub has “disappeared” from your wireless device list

  If you could connect previously, but can’t connect anymore:

  1. Make sure that the wireless device you are trying to connect to has its Wi-Fi signal activated (for example, sometimes laptops have a physical switch on the device that allows you turn its wireless capability on and off)
  2. Make sure that the wireless client is still using the correct wireless settings (network name (SSID), security settings)

Poor Wireless Connectivity or Range

  1. If the signal is low or not available, try to reposition the Wi-Fi Hub closer to your wireless device
  2. Try changing the wireless channel (see below)

  2. Enter the username and password (admin, admin), then select Sign in

  1. In the Channel list under Interface, click a channel other than displayed in Current channel. Be sure to click Save so the channel settings take effect.

The WPS button allows you to connect to another Wi-Fi device in range without the password. To do so, press the WPS button which can be found on the side of the Wi-Fi Hub next to the USB port and connect to your Wi-Fi device, please note, this only opens the Wi-Fi connection for 2 minutes.

          

 If you have trouble connecting your wireless client via WPS, try one of the following:

  1. Wait until the WPS LEDs of the Wi-Fi Hub and other devices are off and then try again
