Instant WiFi FAQs

To get started, open your WiFi network list and look for a network called "Get Quantum Fiber." This network will only be visible when you are in your unit. Once you're connected to this network, you'll be directed to the ordering page where you can enter your information to set up a new account and WiFi credentials.

When you create your new account, the "login" field will be your username. You will create two passwords. The first password field will be the one you use to sign in to your account (NOT your WiFi).

The second password will be entered in the field for "personal WiFi password" and is the unique, secure password you'll use to connect your devices to your WiFi. This password is different from your account password, shown above.

Yes, you can run our speed test on any of your devices, or use any web-based speed test you prefer. Keep in mind these kinds of tests show the current speed on that device only, and will not reflect the total bandwidth of your connection.

With Instant WiFi service, you do not have a conventional modem. Instead, you are connected via wireless access pods.

To reboot your access pod, follow these steps:

1. Find the switch that powers the access point (see image below). This is often found in either a closet next to the kitchen or the master bedroom closet.

2. Unplug the power adapter from the socket (Do NOT press anything that says “reset”).

3. Wait 5 minutes and then plug the power adapter back in.

4. The light on your access pod should change from amber to green to blue.

If your speed seems sluggish or your connection is just not quite right, there are a couple of things you can try.

Option 1: Forget your network

1. Open the list of active wireless networks on your device. Make sure WiFi is enabled on your device.

2. Select the network (My Quantum Fiber) to remove.

3. Click to open options for that network, then select "Forget" or "Remove" to remove the network.

You can also do this to remove all saved networks if your device is attempting to connect to the wrong network, or to reset WiFi if you are unable to connect.

4. Reconnect to the network by re-entering your WiFi password.

Option 2: Reconnect to the Wireless Access Point (WAP) in your unit

1. Disconnect your device from WiFi

2. Wait 20 seconds

3. Reconnect to the WiFi (using the “My Quantum Fiber” network and your WiFi password).

You may get better results if you move your device closer to/directly under the WAP.

Option 3: Wired connection

If you're on a device very far from your acccess point, or if there are walls, mirrors, or other electronics in the way, you  may have a weaker signal or even see your device trying to connect to a neighbor's WiFi. You can try a wired connection to maximize your connection speed. Plug an Ethernet cable into your device and into the jack in your unit.
