Note: This article contains instructions for connecting Legacy (Black) Tablos to WiFi using the Legacy Tablo Web app. This app and method is not supported on the new 4th Gen (white) Tablo. For instructions to add the 4th Gen Tablo to your network, visit this section.


Once you have taken your Tablo out of the box and you have attached the power, antenna and hard drive, you are ready to set up Tablo via Wi-Fi.

Begin by opening your Chrome/Safari/Edge browser and navigating to the web app.

You will be taken to the main ‘Connect to Tablo’ screen. Select 'Add via Wi-Fi'. 

The next screen will instruct you to connect to your Tablo’s network. 

To do this, navigate to your PC's list of available networks. This is usually near the bottom right corner of the screen on the toolbar.


Your Tablo will appear in the Wi-Fi list. To connect to your the Tablo's WiFi network, select it from the list.

Once you have connected to your Tablo’s Wi-Fi network, return to the Tablo app. It will prompt you to select your home network and enter the password.

Once you have typed in your password, select 'Connect'.

From here, you can begin formatting your hard drive, scanning for channels, and using your Tablo!
