Connecting to Wi-Fi Networks (Smart Typewriter)

Smart Typewriter uses Wi-Fi to back up documents to the cloud. To access those drafts, you must have a Postbox account, which you are prompted to create when you first receive your device.

Note: Documents are always saving locally to your device, even when you're not connected to Wi-Fi. So you never have to worry about losing your work!

When the Smart Typewriter Wi-Fi switch is turned to "off," the Freewrite’s Wi-Fi module is turned off, which is great for saving battery life when there is not a Wi-Fi signal in range.

You can turn the Wi-Fi switch to "new" in order to connect to a Wi-Fi network; see detailed instructions below.

Flip the Wi-Fi switch to "on" when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network to effortlessly back up your documents to the cloud as you write.

Connecting to Wi-Fi 

1. Rotate the Wi-Fi switch to the "new" position.

2. The screen will update to show available networks.

3. Select a network with the number keys, or use [pg dn] or [pg up] to see more networks. 

4. If connecting to a secure network, you will be prompted to enter a password.
