When the unit is powered on, the WIFI LED will flash. Once the WIFI LED has stopped flashing, the unit will have created a wireless network and advertise itself with an SSID of ITRON-XXXX where XXXX is the last 4 digits of the LAN MAC address (stickers with LAN MAC address are on box and the bottom of the unit). If you connect to this access point using any mobile device (iOS or Android) you should be redirected (using the captive portal functionality of your device) to the login page for the ITRONHAB01 (see Fig 1).
The unit will always advertise itself as a wireless access point.
