To connect a device using the network settings on that device, follow these steps:
- Find your network name and password. If you customized these, you should have noted them. If you did not customize your network name and password, use the default SSID and security key printed on the sticker on the side or back of your modem or SmartNID.
- Enable WiFi on your device. The settings options will vary by device, but you should be able to find a Wireless/WiFi or Network menu. Toggle on the WiFi or click to enable it.
- Select your network. You'll see a list of available WiFi networks in your area. Find the one that matches the network name you created or the SSID printed on the label.
- Enter your WiFi password. You'll be prompted to enter a password. Enter the security key printed on the label or the custom WiFi password you created. When the correct password is entered, the device should connect within a moment or two.
Optional: With devices that you use regularly, you can check a setting option to connect automatically or remember this network. With that enabled, your device will always connect to the specific network without needing to enter the password again.
