Setting up Wi-Fi

You can set up a Wi-Fi connection for Glass through the MyGlass site on your computer, or using the MyGlass app on an Android device.

Connect to an open network using Glass

If the Wi-Fi network is open, or not secured with a password, you can connect directly to it via your Glass.

  1. Swipe back on Glass until you see the Settings bundle.
  2. Tap into the Settings bundle > Wi-Fi Settings.
  3. Tap the available network > Join network.
  4. Swipe through available open Wi-Fi networks (if there's more than one) and tap on the Wi-Fi network you'd like to join.

Connect to a protected Wi-Fi network

Wi-Fi networks with captive portals

Some public Wi-Fi networks, like those in some airports and cafes, require an extra authentication step via a website before connecting to their network. Glass is not capable of properly displaying these websites at this time and does not currently support connection to these networks, or captive portals.

From MyGlass for Android

Connecting to a Wi-Fi network is easiest with the MyGlass app. MyGlass will automatically add networks to your Glass that are already set up on your device.

To add a network connection, make sure you've connected Glass to your account through Setup.

From the MyGlass app:

  1. Select Wi-Fi from the the MyGlass menu.
  2. Select your wireless network from the list of nearby detected networks.
  3. Enter your wireless network password and press OK.

Please note that these both Wi-Fi name and password fields are case-sensitive.

From MyGlass for iOS

Connecting to a Wi-Fi network is easiest with the MyGlass for iOS app. MyGlass will automatically enter the name of the network your phone is connected to. If you're not connected to a network, you'll have to enter the name manually.

Make sure you've connected Glass to your account through Setup first. Setup may have already taken you through these steps. To add a new or different network connection, launch the MyGlass app.

  1. Tap Add Wi-Fi Network from the the device info screen.
  2. Select your wireless network from the list of nearby detected networks.
  3. Enter your wireless network password and press OK.

Please note that these both Wi-Fi name and password fields are case-sensitive.

From the MyGlass website

To set up your wireless network, you'll need the name of your network and your Wi-Fi password. If you don't have it on-hand, please consult your system administrator or whoever set up your network.

  1. Click the My Wi-Fi networks card.
  2. Type in your wireless network name and password. Please note that these fields are case-sensitive.
  3. Click Generate code.

Hidden networks

Those with hidden networks can set up their networks on Glass by selecting Specify your encryption type from the Wi-Fi networks card.

  1. Click the My Wi-Fi networks card.
  2. Click Specify your encryption type from the bottom of the card.
  3. Type in your wireless network name and password. Please note that these fields are case-sensitive.
  4. Select the appropriate encryption from the drop-down menu and click Generate code.

Scan the QR code with Glass

You should see a QR code for use with your Glass. Next, use your Glass to follow the steps below.

  1. Swipe back until you see the Settings bundle.
  2. Tap into the Settings bundle. The first card in the bundle should be the Wi-Fi Settings card.
  3. Tap the Wi-Fi Settings card and select Join network.
  4. Swipe forward past available open networks (if any) and tap on the Add Wi-Fi network card.

Now pull up the previously generated QR code, and align the box on your Glass display with the QR code on the MyGlass site.

Tips for scanning the QR code

Some lighting conditions may make it more difficult to scan the QR code from various distances. For best results.

  • Make sure you are in a well lit area. The Glass camera may get interference in areas that are dimly lit.
  • Try to keep Glass and the QR code steady. Too much movement may cause motion blur.
  • Don't get too close the the QR code. About a foot or so in front of your face should do it.

Glass will automatically chime when it accepts your QR code. You should now be connected to your Wi-Fi network.

Wi-Fi Mac Address

Do you configure your router to restrict network access by MAC address? You can find your Glass MAC address from the Device info card from the MyGlass site.
