How to set up your Homefi Router

If you have recently purchased a portable wireless router, you might be wondering how to set it up properly. In this post, we will guide you through the steps to set up your Skyroam Solis portable wireless router.

Step 1: Open your package and charge the device

Inside the box, you will find your Skyroam Solis router and a USB-C charging cable. Plug the USB-C end of the cable into the USB-C port located on the side of the hotspot, and the USB end to a USB power source (not included). Once the hotspot is plugged in for charging, the LED bar animation will illuminate inward and outward. The charging process typically takes 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the battery life. Once the LED bar is fully white and the white light is static, the charging has been completed.

Step 2: Power on your device

Press and hold onto the power button for 5 seconds. The power button is located on the top of your hotspot. As the device is booting up, the LED bar and 3 status indicator lights will begin illuminating LED bar light will illuminate a white color going back and forth. At this stage, the hotspot is attempting to connect to a cellular tower. The 3 indicator lights will flash from color red to white. Once the LED bar and 3 indicator lights are a static white color (not flashing), the hotspot is ready to be connected!

Step 3: Connect device to the WiFi Network

On the back of the hotspot, you will find the Skyroam network SSID and the password. The Skyroam network SSID begins with “#Skyroam_” and password is 8 digits. When you are ready to connect, go to your phone or computer ‘WiFi settings’ to locate the Skyroam network SSID. If your device cannot detect the Skyroam WiFi SSID, you may need to reset your hotspot by pressing the reset button with a pin on the back of your hotspot.

Step 4: Open, Charge, Power-On, Connect

To summarize, the steps to set up your Skyroam Solis portable wireless router are as follows:

  • Plug the provided charging cable into Skyroam Solis and connect to a power source to charge
