Connecting to Wi-Fi Networks (Alpha)

Alpha uses Wi-Fi to back up documents to the cloud and download firmware updates. To access your 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 Alpha, even when you're not connected to Wi-Fi. So you never have to worry about losing your work!

How To Connect to Wi-Fi 

  1. Hold the power button for 3 seconds to open the main menu.

  1. Press [1] to select "Wifi."
  2. The screen will update to show three options: on, off, or new. If you're adding a new network, select [3]. If you are connecting to a network you've connected Alpha to before, select [1].

  1. You will see a confirmation that you are connected.

  1. You will also be prompted to enter your email address in order to log into your Postbox account, if you are not already logged in. (If you don't have a Postbox account, this process will create one for you.)

  2. The screen will display a message letting you know that you are successfully logged in!
