The screen on the front will light up and display the Vodafone logo. It’ll then go through its start-up sequence, connecting to the mobile network and starting Wi-Fi. Allow up to 90 seconds for all this to happen.
Check the Pocket WiFi screen and make sure you see ‘Voda AU’, ‘Vodafone AU’ or Vodafone AU R’ as this indicates you’ve got service. The coverage bars on the top left of the screen show how strong the mobile network signal is.
Search for available Wi-Fi networks on the device you’re connecting.
If you're connecting a phone or tablet you bought from us, check our interactive user guides for Wi-Fi instructions. If you're connecting a Windows or Mac computer, try these links:
Select the network name (SSID) for the Pocket WiFi from the list.
If your device asks for a network security setting, select ‘WPA’ if using the Pocket WiFi or ‘WPA2’ if you’re using the Pocket WiFi Pro, Extreme or 4G. These are the default security settings that the device comes with.
Enter your Pocket WiFi's network password/key in the password field.
Your device should now be connected and ready for use. You can repeat steps 3 to 8 connect additional devices if needed.
When you’ve finished using your Pocket WiFi, press and hold the power button until the display clears to switch it off.
