How do I connect my Arlo SmartHub or base station to the Internet?

To connect your Arlo SmartHub or base station to the Internet:

  1. Connect the SmartHub or base station to your router using an Ethernet cable.
    Note: You must connect the base station to your router before you power it on. The base station might not connect to your network correctly if you power it on before connecting it to your router.
  2. Connect the power adapter to the base station and plug it into an electrical outlet.
  3. Turn the base station on by pressing the On-Off button.
  4. Wait for the power LED and Internet LED on the front of the base station to turn green in about two minutes. If you're using a single-LED base station, wait for the LED to turn blue.
    Your base station is connected to the Internet.
