    I'm getting even more out of touch with modern technology - what the f**k is an iBoost? :confused:

    I had a little plastic card that had a summary of what to do that helped me Jim.

    You need to follow the sequence exactly on initial set up.

    Good luck(y)

    Don't have the instructions with me and can't find a download on Adams site, but I'm on a very poor connection so they may be there.

    Turn I boost on.
    In your browser type 10.20.30.40
    When asked for username and password type mhw in both
    This opens your control panel.
    Highlight the wi fi you want to connect to
    Enter password if required
    Click on change and

    Bobs your mothers brother!

    This from memory but hope I got it right!!!

    assuming its all connected and powered up..
    connect to the I boost using the security key on the router
    open the browser and go to http//:10.20.30.40
    you need to log in with default u/n and p/w which are both'' mhw''
    there is a main page and a wireless section.... go to wireless page
    click on select .. next to the ssid
    a list of wi fi networks will be displayed
    select the one you want to connect to by ticking the box on left
    then the select button at bottom of the page..
    you then get a page up with the selected hot spot you chose
    once you are happy with the information and entered any pass key if required click on change at bottom of that page.
    you will most probably get a blue bar at the top of the page saying changes have been made... you need to click the apply button.

    it should then connect to that network and you can click on the main page tab and check whether you are connected and the signal strength...


    I wrote it all down on a bit of paper , set it up with van parked in street in the street and just played around with it till I got familiar..
    remember if you are connecting to a fon spot it will take you to a further log in to fon when you first try and go on line..
    hope that helps.. but it gets easier after a few goes...

    before you can log in to the Iboost, your device has to be connected to the Iboost wifi signal..

    that caught me out at first

    it is supplied with the iBoost

    if you have lost it, you will probably need to contact Adam..

    or you can try mine.. I'll be right back with it
