CLEAR is a wireless Internet service provider that allows you to access an Internet connection anywhere you can access a cell phone signal. CLEAR provides three primary options: a USB Wi-Fi receiver, a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot and a modem designed for stationary use in a home or office. Using your CLEAR Internet access requires hardware set up and software setup. The latter is similar to configuring Wi-Fi settings on other wireless Internet platforms.
Connect the included power cable to your CLEAR Spot mobile hot spot device or home modem. The hot spot device has an LED that will change from orange to green when fully charged. The USB modem is powered by your computer.
Plug one end of an Ethernet cable into your CLEAR home modem and the other end into your computer or router. This is not required for CLEAR mobile devices.
Click on the wireless icon in the lower right hand corner of your desktop or the screen of your mobile device. This will open the list of wireless signals within range. Click on the option labeled "CLEAR" and then click "Connect".
Double-click your browser icon to open the application and then enter "http://192.168.15.1" in the address bar. This will take you to the configuration page for your CLEAR device. When prompted, enter the default password, "CLEAR123".
Click on the tab labeled "Basic" and then click "Wi-Fi" to access the SSID customization page. This allows you to change the name of the Wi-Fi connection and customize the password. Make any changes you wish and then click on "APPLY".
Click on the "Home" icon on your web browser and the browser directs you to the configurations page. Follow the on-screen instructions to finalize the details of your CLEAR account.
