What is a Rocket mobile hotspot best for?
Able to connect up to 10 Wi-Fi devices simultaneously, the hotspot is perfect for families on road trips wanting fast internet to keep the kids entertained; study groups hunkering down at coffee shops who need secure internet; and business teams, say, traveling and needing to get online during that long layover.
GOT ONE ALREADY? HERE’S HOW TO SET IT UP
Press and hold the mobile hotspot Power button for 2 seconds to create your own hotspot and display its SSID (Wi-Fi network name) and passphrase (network security key).
On your laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device, open your Wi-Fi connection manager and scan for available Wi-Fi networks.
Select the SSID for your hotspot and when prompted, enter the passphrase as displayed on the mobile hotspot screen—now you’re connected!

CUSTOMIZE YOUR SETTINGS
Once you’ve connected to the hotspot, open your web browser on your laptop or Wi-Fi enabled device and go to http://rogers.hotspot.com
Log in at the top of the screen using the default admin login name – swiadmin and you can access the menu options listed on the left:
Under the Device Security menu you can change your network name and password, or hide them from being visible on your mobile hotspot.
Under the Battery menu, you can set your standby timer and Wi-Fi signal range as desired.
Under the Alert Sounds menu you can customize your sounds and alerts.
You can even power off your mobile hotspot right from this screen and leave the device itself in your bag!
