The WiFi authentication tool is helpful if other ways of connecting the device to your network did not work out. Please keep in mind that the antenna on your Mr Beam might not be as strong as the one on your phone or laptop. We recommend to move your Mr Beam close to your WiFi router, at least to test if it connects correctly.
You will need the .SIG file and a wifi_config.yaml file, which both can be found in the Downloads section. In the wifi_config.yaml file you will see 2 fields where you need to change the placeholders your_new_wifi_name and your_new_wifi_password. Using Notepad (or any basic text editor) open the file and change your_new_wifi_name to the name of your home WiFi (Also know as SSID). Then change your_new_wifi_password to the password of your home WiFi. In both cases you should keep the quotation marks. You should not change the name of this file.
# Change the name and the password underneath. # Please keep the quotations " " around your wifi name and password. # The quotations " " will not appear in you final wifi name and password, # only what is inside of them. name: "your_new_wifi_name" password: "your_new_wifi_password"
