c. Connect To Router and Power Outlet
If you have access to your router, plug your AirWave into your router using the included Ethernet cable. This is the easiest way to get your AirWave connected to your home network.
If you do not have access to plug directly into a router, no problem! We’ll use another method to get your AirWave connected to your home network later.
Using the power cable supplied, plug the AirWave Power Bridge into a power outlet.
2. Connect AirWave to Home Network*
Your AirWave will need to be connected to your home network before completing the Mohu TV app setup.
*If you connected your AirWave Power Bridge to your home network router, you’re already connected! Move on to Step 3.
a. Select a Device to Use for Setup
You will need a WiFi-enabled computer, tablet, or mobile device to complete the setup portal.
b. Connect to AirWave’s Access Point
Once your AirWave is powered on (plugged in), a new wireless connection will be available. This connection (wireless access point) will be named airwave-[serial]. From the device you’re using to set up your AirWave, connect to the AirWave access point just like you would connect to any other WiFi network.
Note: while connected to the AirWave access point and completing the setup portal, you will be disconnected from the internet on that device.
c. Follow the Steps in the WiFi Setup Portal
After a few seconds, a window with the setup portal should open. If the portal does not open automatically, please open a browser (e.g. Chrome, Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on your device and go to www.gomohu.com/airwave-settings.
Follow the prompts on the screen to get your AirWave connected to your home network.
d. Reconnect to Your Home WiFi
When you have completed the setup you may need to reconnect the device you used during setup to your standard home WiFi network.

4. Get Started With Mohu TV
a. Complete Initial Mohu TV App Setup
Open the Mohu TV app on your streaming device and follow the setup prompts.
It is strongly recommended that you fully complete the setup wizard step that connects your AirWave to your home WiFi.
If you connected your AirWave Power Bridge to your router, you don’t have to connect your AirWave to your home WiFi. However, you may find that other places in your house receive over-the-air TV signals better than right by your router. Connecting your AirWave to your home WiFi allows you to take advantage of AirWave’s wireless capabilities and move it around to find the best TV signals.
You will need to complete a channel scan before content is available in the Mohu TV Guide.
b. Enjoy Mohu TV
Select the “Guide” menu option to view and access content.
Mohu TV’s Guide gives you access to channels your antenna receives over-the-air, as well as a variety of free streaming channels.
Use the “My Channels” menu option to quickly access your favorite content.
To change the channel, use your streaming device’s “Back” button to return to the Guide where any new channel can be selected.
ClearPix is the technology that automatically detects the best internal antenna configuration for each channel.
During the channel scan AirWave checks multiple ClearPix configurations in order to determine the best signal for each individual channel. Since many factors such as physical obstructions and weather changes can affect antenna performance, however, you may at times want to try an alternate ClearPix configuration when your reception is subpar.
You can try another ClearPix setting when viewing a channel by clicking the alternate “ClearPix” button. This sets the signal for each channel individually. Wait a few seconds for the signal to change before deciding which ClearPix setting is best for that channel.
4. Find the Right Location for Your AirWave
a. Place Antenna in Clear Path to Towers
Generally, the antenna performs best with the clearest path possible to broadcast towers. Ideal placement tends to be higher up, near windows, and away from metal objects.
b. Consider Your WiFi Connection Speed
If you have a weak WiFi signal you may need to connect your AirWave Power Bridge directly to your router using the included ethernet cable.
If you have a strong WiFi connection, it is more important to place your AirWave where the antenna will perform best than to be connected directly to your router.
