Solution

Step 1 Power on the Device:

Turn on the hotspot by pressing and holding the power button on until the device comes on. After the welcome screen, Moxee Hotspot will be displayed. Which means it has completely started up you will see this screen.

 

Step 2 Select WIFI Frequency Band:

Press the Menu button at the top of the screen until you get to the Wifi Info screen

The first option you will see is 2.4G WIFI Info or if you hit the Menu button again you will get 5G Wifi Info. The "G" Wifi Frequency bands are not cellular frequency bands so do not confuse the Wifi 5G with cellular 5G.

Wifi Frequency 2.4G and 5G differences

  • 2.4G slower speeds, lower data rates, covers larger area
  • 5G faster speeds, higher data rates, covers smaller area

So select a wifi frequency that best fits your situation.

 

Step 3 Get SSID Name / Password for WiFi:

After deciding with frequency band you are going with press the Power button and you will see this screen.

The first line underlined in red on the image is the network (SSID) and the next line underlined in red will be the password. You will need both of these to connect to the hotspot so make sure you write this down or remember it. The full SSID format will be as follows: “Moxee HotspotXX_2.4G” “Moxee HotspotXX_5G”, the XX will have specific numbers for your device.

 

Step 4 Connect your Device to the Hotspot:

Go to your device and look for available wireless networks. Once you find the wireless network with the SSID name in step 3, connect to it and use the password from step 3 to log in. From this point you should be all set to go, make sure you keep the device charged after usage.
