Setting up a WiFi hotspot
- Put your SIM into your WiFi hotspot and power it on.
- On your WiFi enabled device (i.e. your mobile phone, laptop, computer or tablet) go to your wireless connection settings and select your hotspot from the list of available connections. The name (or SSID) of your hotspot will be written on a sticker on the back. Then input the WiFi security key (this is an 8 digit password) and press ok.
- Next you'll need to enter your PIN. You will need to input this via the ‘web management’ page on your WiFi enabled device. To get to this page, open a web browser, type 192.168.8.1 (or 192.168.1.1 if you are using one of older devices) into the address bar and press enter.
- Enter your PIN. You’ll find this on the back of your SIM pack
