  2. Activate
  1. Set up your WiFi network
    When naming your new network, if you choose a network name (SSID) and password that is the same as your old network, your wireless devices should remember those credentials and automatically reconnect.
    1. If you’re using a wireless device, access the WiFi settings, then select your Gateway’s network name (SSID) and join using the password located on the bottom of your Gateway.
    2. Once connected, open your Internet browser then type into the address bar and press Enter.
    3. Follow the on-screen prompts to customize your network name and password.
  1. Connect to WiFi
    • For each of your devices, access the WiFi settings, select the Network Name (SSID) and enter the password you created in Step 3.
  1. Download the BlueCurve Home app
    • Manage your WiFi network the way you want. From creating user profiles to setting usage schedules and limits, the BlueCurve Home app ensures you're in control. 


You're good to go! Enjoy seamless surfing and streaming!

Common Questions

Where should I place my Gateway?

  • In a central, visible and off-the-ground location.
  • Avoid basement/underground spots, cabinets or hiding it behind any objects.
  • Away from appliances, electrical equipment and metal / stainless steel objects.


What if I need to connect my Gateway and TV box to the same outlet?

This step is optional. You’ll need a 2-way splitter (available at Shaw retail stores) and (3) lengths of coax cable total.

  1. Connect one end of the coax cable to a cable outlet and the other end to the IN port on the splitter.
  2. Connect a second coax cable to the splitter and your Gateway.

Note: Hold off on connecting the TV equipment to an electrical outlet. You will do this later on.


What if I hardwire my connection with the ethernet cable and need to set up my WiFi network? 

If you hardwire your desktop computer to your Gateway with the ethernet cable:

  1. Open your Internet browser.
  2. Type into the address bar and press Enter.
  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to customize your network name and password.
