Want to connect your devices to your home network? We can help! When it comes to connecting to the internet, there are several ways to do it, from using WiFi to connecting directly to your modem using an Ethernet cable.
There are hundreds of devices that you can connect to your WiFi, from smartphones and tablets to entertainment equipment, home assistants, and many other smart devices. Before starting, make sure the internet light on your modem is green. If not, you will need to troubleshoot your modem lights first. Then all you need to do is locate the settings on the modem and enter them into your device.
Find the network name (SSID) and security key/passphrase on the modem sticker. If you can't access the sticker, you can look up the security settings on the user interface site. This information will help you connect devices to your home WiFi.
Setup varies by device, but most devices have a Settings > Wireless option where you can enter information. Once you've found the network name (SSID) and security key/passphrase, enter these into the WiFi settings of your device and wait for the connection to complete.
To connect more than one device to your WiFi network, you simply repeat the above steps for each device.
To connect additional devices to your network, you may connect them directly to your modem using an Ethernet cable, such as the yellow cable that came with your modem.
Sometimes you may want additional guidance from the manufacturer on how to connect their device to WiFi or your modem. Here are some common device manufacturer support sites:
