- Click "Apply settings"
- Once completed, you will see a message saying "WiFi device connected". You can now disconnect the USB-C cable from the HUB and close the Device Manager.
At this point, you should see a grey hand in the scene, with the LED's of the HUB being both green. Then, disconnect this Smartglove, connect it to your battery and connect the other Smartglove to your computer.

If connected to a 5GHz network you should see two green LED colors. If connected to a 2,4GHz, you should see one green and one blue and one green on yellow if connected to a Dual Band.
If you didn't succeed, no panic as it is most likely a WiFi setting issue that can easily be resolved. Please consider the following:
- Verifying you disabled all your computer firewalls or anti-virus software such as McAfee (you can instate exception rules later on). Learn more here
- Testing a different router and computer (you can even test the connection with a Smartphone hotspot)
- Consulting this troubleshooting guide when the WiFi settings fail to apply.
