There are two ways to connect to Wi-Fi:
- Use the Telstra-supplied modem’s Wi-Fi protected setup (WPS) feature
- Connect your device to Wi-Fi manually.
Use the modem’s Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) feature
WPS lets you pair compatible devices like PCs, laptops and mobiles to your Telstra-supplied modem, without a password:
- On your device, go to ‘Settings’ and then ‘Wi-Fi’
If your device is compatible with WPS, you can select it from the available options. See your device instructions for more information
- On your Telstra-supplied modem, press and hold the ‘Pair’ or ‘WPS’ button for up to 5 seconds. Depending on the type of modem you have this will either be on the front or back of the device.
- When the ‘Pair/WPS’ light flashes, your device is connected to the Wi-Fi.
Connect your device(s) manually
If your device isn’t compatible with WPS, or you want to connect to Wi-Fi manually:
- Turn on your device’s wireless (Wi-Fi) receiver
If you’re not sure how, check your device’s user manual. You can usually turn Wi-Fi on by going to ‘Settings’, and then ‘Wi-Fi’ or ‘Networks’
- You’ll see a list of available Wi-Fi Networks
- Select the wireless network shown on your device, and input the password when requested. You can often find this on your modem. Or on the Wi-Fi security card that came with your Telstra-supplied modem.
