Connecting to a Wi-Fi network
It's easy to connect to Wi-Fi using the VIVE app or during the setup process, but you can also add or change networks from Settings.
Important: When using a phone controller with VIVE Flow, VIVE Flow can only connect to a Wi-Fi network that supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/ac/n (5 GHz band). Make sure your Wi-Fi router or phone's Wi-Fi hotspot is set to the 5 GHz band. To learn how to set your phone's Wi-Fi hotspot to 5 GHz, see Why can't VIVE Flow find my phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot? . To learn how to set your Wi-Fi router to the 5 GHz band, consult its user guide.
- If you're currently running an app, tap/press the VIVE button on the controller, and then select Back to Home.
- From Home, select Settings.
- In Connectivity, select Wi-Fi.
- Choose a Wi-Fi network to add from the list. If your network is hidden, add it manually by selecting Add Network at the bottom of the list.
- If this is the first time you've connected to this network, enter your network information.
- For some public Wi-Fi networks, such as the ones in hotels or airports, you'll need to open a web browser to log in to connect to the Wi-Fi network. In VR, open VIVE Browser, and then go to any website. VIVE Browser will redirect you to the log in page where you can enter the required credentials to connect.
- You can also use the VIVE app to set up Wi-Fi for VIVE Flow. In the VIVE app, tap your VIVE Flow under Headset, and then tap Headset Wi-Fi.
