Wireless Setup


If Home Base is powered on while plugged into a router, it will operate as a wired device. If Home Base is powered on without a wired network connection, it goes into wireless mode.

There are three ways to attach your Home Base to your wireless network:

Wired setup of wireless mode

The setup software will help you make Home Base operate as a member of your wireless network.

  1. Start by connecting your Home Base to your router. (You’ll unplug it later.)
  2. Connect the AC adapter.
  3. Run the setup software and follow the software's instructions to Setup Home Base.

  4. When offered wireless setup, select a wireless network.

  5. The setup software will tell Home Base what network you chose. Follow the software’s instructions to unplug your Home Base from the router and turn it off and on.

  6. Your Home Base will then operate as a member of your wireless network. It may take a few minutes to be fully connected. You can verify the successful wireless connection by checking that the wireless LED is on solid on the front of Home Base. If it is a successful secure connection, the security LED on the front of Home Base will also be on solid.

WPS Push Button Configuration

If your router supports it, WPS Push Button Configuration (PBC) is the quickest way to get Home Base onto your wireless network.

  1. Make sure Home Base is NOT plugged into your router.
  2. Connect the AC adapter.
  3. Push the WPS button on your router. (Refer to your router’s instruction manual.)
  4. Push and hold the WPS button on Home Base. Release the WPS button when the security LED on the Home Base starts blinking long blinks after about three seconds. PBC Mode Available
  5. Home Base and your router will negotiate a connection.

If a connection is established, Home Base’s security LED will come on and stay on. Success

If a connection is not established after two minutes, the security LED will flash quickly and continuously for 10 seconds, then stop, and you’ll need to try again. Error

If Home Base couldn’t determine which router to connect to, the security LED will flash in bursts of five for ten seconds, then stop, and you’ll need to try again. Session Overlap

  3. Connect the AC adapter.
  4. Push and hold the WPS button on Home Base. Release the WPS button when the security LED on Home Base starts blinking short blinks after about 10 seconds. PIN Available
