If you have a computer, phone, tablet, or other wireless device you want to connect to your home WiFi network, follow the instructions below. Remember that all of the devices you connect to home WiFi will be sharing the same Internet connection.
Connecting devices to your home WiFi
If you are using a Shaw wireless modem, you will be able to find your network name and password printed on the label on your modem. For instructions specific to your device, visit the device manufacturer's support website. Use these steps to connect your computer, laptop, phone, tablet or wireless device to your home WiFi network. Enjoy a secure WiFi experience from the comfort of your home.
To connect a wireless device to WiFi:
Open your device's WiFi settings.
Select your home WiFi network from the list of available networks.
Enter your network password.
Use the 5 GHz WiFi frequency for devices that rely on faster speeds. Use the 2.4 network for non-streaming smart home devices like cameras, thermostats, fridges, and garage doors.
Tip From a Tech: "If you only see one network, your modem might be sorting devices to the best networks for you using band steering. To guarantee the fastest speed, plug your device directly into the modem."
