Out of the box, the SimplicityTouch is ready to be hard wired to your network. To do this, you do not have to adjust any settings, you will insert an ethernet cable to an active wall drop on one end and into the WAN port of the panel. The WAN port is located on the bottom of the panel on the opposite side of the power cord. Generally speaking, being connected to a wired network provides the greatest stability for a network connection.
To connect the panel to a wireless network, you will need to perform a few steps to configure the internal router. Please follow these steps carefully to ensure everything is setup correctly.
