Android tablet with built-in Wi-Fi


Devices may vary. These directions are based on the Pandigital Novel, as of 10/2010.

1. Verify that your Wi-Fi & Low Power is turned on.

Switch the Wi-Fi & Low Power button on the top of the unit on.

2. Select Settings from the Application Quick Launch Bar, and tap Network.

The unit should automatically detect the Hautspot network's SSID. Look for something similar to the local venue's name, or ask an attendant if unsure. If more than one network is detected, be sure to tap the appropriate SSID.

3. Tap Connect.

This will connect you to the network, and should automatically save a profile for this venue.

4. Select Web from the Application Quick Launch Bar.

This will open a browser window. You should be automatically directed to the Hautspot portal.

5. Log in.

If you already have a Hautspot (or partner network) account, simply enter your username and password and tap Login. If not, tap the sign up button on the portal page (if available) and complete the necessary fields to create an account, and tap Request Account, purchase a plan from the available button, or request a pre-authorized code from the venue. Remember that by logging into a Hautspot network, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to our terms of acceptable use (viewable from the portal page).

6. Play!

Once you have completed the login process, feel free to browse the web, download files, transfer email...whatever you like. For secure transactions, however, you should consider using a VPN connection to your office.

7. Log off.

First disconnect any VPN connections you may have established. Next, simply close any other internet-connected applications you may have open, including your web browser. Goodbye!
