How to set up the NETGEAR Nighthawk® M1

In this video we will show you how to set up the NETGEAR Nighthawk® M1 mobile router.



What's in the box: the NETGEAR Nighthawk® M1, a battery, a power adapter and a USB type-c cable.

Make sure the SIM card is activated and place in the SIM card slot.

Insert the battery and put on the cover. Now switch on the Nighthawk by pressing and holding the power button for three seconds.


Once switched on, press and release the power button to toggle through the LCD display until you see the Wi-Fi name and password.

Download the Netgear mobile app by going to and selecting your app store. This will redirect you to download the app to your device.

Make sure Wi-Fi is enabled on your computer or mobile device and search for Wi-Fi networks. Select the network name shown on your Nighthawks screen and enter the password exactly as it's shown. (It's recommended that you change the default network and password to your own).


First choose your password for the Netgear app. The app will prompt you to change your Wi-Fi network name and password.

This completes the setup of your NETGEAR Nighthawk® M1.


You can also refer to the Nighthawk Quick Start Guide that comes in the box.
