- Once you are logged into the portal follow the 3 steps exactly:
- VERY IMPORTANT: You must register each device that you want to connect to the wi-fi by adding the Mac address of that device into the portal - making sure to turn OFF the private Mac Address feature on phones and laptops (help link in portal if needed). You cannot connect a device to wi-fi until the device is added to your MyResNet account or that device will not recognize the network. Your extra devices will not be able to connect to wi-fi until they are first added to your “My Devices” tab in your MyResNet account profile.
PAN Functionality will become active for all devices that are added to your account. This allows those devices to connect to each other through your own Personal Area Network (PAN)
- For Users that already have a MyResNet account or to return to the portal after the initial account creation to add/delete/manage your devices or update your profile you must first be connected to MyResNet 5G on your device….. open a browser on that same device and navigate to www.myresnet.com and sign into the portal via “returning user” with your MyResNet account credentials. If you are not connected to MyResNet5G on your device, the link above will not work properly for you.
