Netgear Nighthawk

Step 1

In order for the device to activate, it will need to stay powered off.

If you submitted your activation during business hours, please leave your device powered off for 2 hours.

If you have submitted for your activation after business hours, there can be delays. Some activations will process throughout the evening, however, we do not guarantee that. Activations submitted after hours can take until 10am the following morning.

Step 2

After waiting the designated amount of time, power your device on by locating the power button on top of the device and holding it for 5 seconds.

Allow the device to provision and self activate. This will take a few minutes.

Once fully activated, a small light will go from flashing orange to blue.

Step 3

You will see a screen stating to go to a website; you do not need to go to this site to complete your activation. We have done all the work for you. All you will need to do is press the power button 1 time to bypass that screen.

Step 4

Now you will want to connect your mobile devices to the Nighthawk. Press the power button until you get to either 2.5 ghz on the screen. This will provide your user name and password to connect your devices wirelessly.

Important note: When using this device for extended amounts of time, remove the battery and leave it plugged in. This will save your battery and help prevent overheating.
