MobileLite Wireless is its own wireless network. Joining this network will automatically replace your existing Internet connection, be it your iPad, iPhone, or home/office WiFi network. MobileLite Wireless does offer a bridged network connection which allows you to access the Internet while continuing to stream MobileLite content. This feature basically allows you to “bridge” together two networks.
To do this, connect to MobileLite Wireless network and follow these steps:
This may need to change the default Wi-Fi channel. The MobileLite Wireless defaults to channel 11.If there are already too many connections near you using this channel, it could cause the MobileLite Wireless not to connect.
To resolve this:
There is a reset button next to the power button on the MobileLite Wireless. It can only be accessed by using a paper clip. With the MobileLite Wireless on, press and hold this button for about 15 seconds. You should then power it off and back on again. Note: This will not delete any data stored on USB, SD or internal storage, but it will remove any changes to the network I.D., password etc.
First make sure there is another WiFi connection available besides the MobileLite Wireless and that you are connected to it. Then try the following:

The MobileLite Wireless device has two configurations when it comes to security.The ‘Off’ state indicates that the device will not be password protected with WPA2 security, which will virtually allow anyone to connect to the device.
The ‘On’ state indicates that the device will be password protected with WPA2 security and only those supplied with the password will be able to connect to the MobileLite Wireless device.
The on/off state will only come into play when trying to access the contents that are available by the MobileLite Wireless device.
The MobileLite Wireless device supports both WEP and WPA2 bridged connections.
The MobileLite Wireless reader has two Mac addresses: One for LAN and one for WAN for bridging. The MAC address listed on the back of the device is the LAN MAC address and will not be the same as the WAN MAC address.The WAN MAC address is HEX digit (0-9 and A-F) higher than what is on the back of the device.
The MobileLite Wireless reader will support up to 2TB storage devices.
Yes. Have both devices plugged in to the MLW and open the app.
In some cases, external USB drives will need to be connected to the MLW before it is powered on in order for the app to see the drive. Also verify that the drive is formatted in one of the following file systems: FAT, FAT32, NTFS or exFAT. Also, you will need to disable any security software enabled on the USB hard drive, such as BitLocker or the drive’s original security software.
There a few possible reasons why a hard drive would not be detected. The drive may be using a unsupported format. The hard drive must be formatted in either FAT32, exFAT or NTFS. The Mobilelite Wireless does not support MacOS or Linux formats. The partition type could be GPT. This partition type is usually used only for boot drives and cannot be read by the Mobilelite Wireless. You will need to change the partition type to MBR. You may have some type of security feature enabled on the drive. This could be some type of encryption or password protection software that came with the drive. This must be disabled.
