Looking for instructions on how to edit the Wi-Fi network to which your 4th generation Tablo is connected? Click here.

 

If your Tablo is connected to your network via WiFi and you've:

  • Purchased a new WiFi router
  • Changed your WiFi router's name (SSID) or password
  • Changed internet service providers
  • Moved your Tablo to a different home

You may need to change or edit your Tablo's WiFi network credentials in order to re-connect it to your router or connect it to a new router.


Before Editing Your Tablo's WiFi Credentials

Make sure that your Tablo is NOT connected via Ethernet before you follow the steps below. If it is, remove the Ethernet cable and reboot the Tablo by tapping the blue reset button on the back of the unit. Wait ~1 minute before proceeding to the steps below.

 

NOTE: The screenshots below are from the Tablo iOS app, for iPhones and iPads. However, you can also perform these steps using the Tablo web app at http://my.tablotv.com/ or the Tablo Android mobile app, by using the 'Edit Wi-Fi' button shown below.

You will be taken to a screen displaying your Tablo(s). Select the 'OPTIONS' button beside your Tablo's name. (This will say Tablo if you haven't opted to re-name your Tablo.)

STEP 6

Once you have entered your password, the Tablo app will verify the WiFi information. Once the setup is complete your Tablo's blue LED light will become solid.

Your Tablo will now be connected to it's new home network. 

 

NOTE - Once your edits to the Tablo's WiFi network are complete, do not be alarmed that you no longer see the Tablo_XXXX network in your list of nearby WiFi networks. Tablo's unique WiFi network will ONLY appear during the WiFi setup process as it acts as a 'temporary door' which allows you to invite the Tablo on to your home network. Once the WiFi connection is complete, the 'temporary door' will disappear as it is no longer needed.
