2. Connect your device (laptop/Mac/tablet/phone) to the WiFi of the Slate. It will appear as Slate XXX on the list:


3. Once connected to the WiFi, type the IP address of the Slate in to the address bar of your device's browser. The IP address will be 192.167.XXX.1. (the XX represents your Slate's ID) and can be found on the Slate screen just after the page SSID:SlateXXX. For example SSID: Slate025 =


4. The web browser will launch the following configuration page, and ask you to select the network you wish to join for internet access.

12. Restore the Slate back to Soft-AP mode (as per step one) to resume normal operation.
