Connect the unit to a suitable power source using the power supply provided. After showing a starting screen, it will enter the last used listening mode. When the unit is started for the first time, the setup wizard will be launched automatically.

Get the network environment ready

Make sure you have setup the wireless network and you have the WEP, WPA or WPA2 security password to activate the connection. You may also use the WPS (WiFi Protected Setup) function for easy pairing between the network device and Homerton 2. Check if the light indicators on the network device are in appropriate status.
