You will need to get your Internet Network Credentials ready.

Your wireless router/gateway should have a label with its default wireless settings credentials. If you cannot find it though, refer to the device's documentation.


In the event that your Internet Service Provider equipped the router or gateway, they may have left a setup sheet with the needed credentials.


In the case where you do not know your Wireless Network name (SSID) and Key, reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Router Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) for help.
