If you've got UFO, you'll need to set up your Wi-Fi Hub a little differently. Here's how to do it.

 

Set up your Wi-Fi Hub & UFO Home Port

  1. Plug the UFO Home Port power cable into the wall socket and switch it on.
  2. The power light and PON light on the UFO Home Port will turn green.
  3. Open the lower panel on the UFO Home Port.
  4. Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the LAN port.
  5. Plug the other end into the WAN port on the back of your Wi-Fi hub.
  6. Now plug the power cable into your Wi-Fi Hub and wall socket and switch it on.
  7. Push the power button on the back of your Wi-Fi Hub.

Rename your SSIDs

Your Wi-Fi Hub automatically chooses a wireless frequency to broadcast on every time you connect to Wi-Fi:

  • 2.4GHz - this frequency gives you standard speeds but a good range, so you'll get a good signal even when you're not close to your Wi-Fi Hub.
  • 5GHz - this frequency gives you the best possible speeds but a shorter range, so you may lose signal when further away from your Wi-Fi Hub.

You can choose which frequency to connect to by giving each one its own wireless network name (SSID). This way, you can connect different devices to different frequencies or always connect to the fastest frequency if you want. Here's how to do it.

  1. Open your browser and type in 192.168.1.1 to go to the router admin page.
  2. Login with your router username and password. You’ll find these on the sticker underneath the removable settings card on back of your Wi-Fi Hub.
  3. On the Dashboard page, click the See Wi-Fi settings button.
  4. Now click Manage advanced settings.
  5. Click on the blue cog icon in the Wi-Fi 2.4GHz section.
  6. Type a new network name into the SSID text box.
  7. Click the Apply button.
  8. On the change confirmation box, click the Continue button.
  9. To change the SSID for 5GHz too, simply follow the steps above but click the blue cog icon in the Wi-Fi 5GHz section instead.
