To set up your Netgear Nighthawk M1 as a mobile broadband hotspot, you just need to install the micro SIM:

  1. Take the bottom cover off the Nighthawk, and remove the battery to view the SIM card slot
  2. If the micro SIM is not already installed, you’ll find it in the box, in a sealed pouch
  3. Insert the SIM in the SIM card slot, then replace the battery and the cover
  4. Now turn the Nighthawk ON by pressing and holding the Power button for 3 seconds
  5. To view the Wi-Fi name and password, press and release the Power button to toggle through the menus on the display.
  6. Connect your device using the Nighthawk’s name and password.
