As the HomePass App guides you through setup, you'll be prompted to name your network and password:
- Make sure that your network name has between 1 and 31 characters
- Your password should be between 8 and 63 characters.
The type of wireless network (WPA2 or WPA3) created during the initial setup will depend on the type of hardware being used:
- If a SuperPod with WiFi 6E is being used, the SSID you created during the initial setup will default to WPA3 since that is a requirement for 6 GHz operation. Although you can create a secondary WPA2 network afterward.
- If a SuperPod is being used, the SSID you created during the initial setup will default to WPA2 since the original SuperPod and PowerPod currently only support WPA2.
Only one network name (SSID) is needed to cover the 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and 6 GHz* bands. Guests will also use the same WPA2 SSID when multi-PSK is enabled.
*Only available on the SuperPod with WiFi 6E.
Important: If you use the same network name and password from an old router, you may experience issues because some devices will be connected to your Plume network while others remain connected to that old router. Turn off the WiFi on your old router and the devices should then migrate over to the Plume network.
We recommend you:
- Use a new WiFi name and password for your Plume network
- Turn off the WiFi on your old router.
