To install and activate the Cogeco Wi-Fi Pods, follow these steps:

Step 1 – Ensure your modem is active

Check that your modem is properly active. It’s normal that the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi indicators on your modem are not lit.

Good to know: Wi-Fi Pods nullify the username and password indicated on your modem.

Step 2 – Download and install the application

Download and install the Cogeco Wi-Fi app on your mobile device (iOS App Store or Google Play Store).

Step 3 – Register through the application

  1. Open the Cogeco Wi-Fi app on your mobile device.
  2. Accept the Terms and Conditions.
  3. Enter your My Account username and password.

Good to know: You will need the app throughout the installation of the Wi-Fi Pods.

Step 4 – Set up the first Wi-Fi Pod

Follow the steps indicated in the app.

  1. Restart your modem.
  2. Connect one Wi-Fi Pod to your modem using the Ethernet cable included in the box.
  3. Plug the same Wi-Fi Pod into a power outlet.

The first Wi-Fi Pod must stay connected to your modem with an ethernet cable and plugged into a power outlet at all times.

Step 5 – Name your network and create a password

At this step, choose:

  • your network name, and
  • your password for logging in (at least eight characters long).

Good to know: You can use your current network name and password to avoid reconfiguring all the devices connected to your Wi-Fi. This is very useful if you have several devices connected to the Internet, such as mobile devices, tablets and smart home devices.

Step 6 – Set up the second Wi-Fi Pod

Once you have installed your first Wi-Fi Pod, you can install your second one wherever you think is optimal in your home.
