If there is a new software update available for Somnox 2, we recommend that you perform this update. Whenever you update Somnox 2, a Wi-Fi connection is needed between Somnox 2 and your phone. In this article, you will learn how you can set up a Wi-Fi connection.

How do you connect Somnox 2 with Wi-Fi?

  1. If this is the first time that you are performing a software update of Somnox 2, you will need to connect Somnox 2 to Wi-Fi. A new screen will appear asking you to set up a Wi-Fi connection.

  2. Click on Set up Wi-Fi to connect Somnox 2 to a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network.

  3. The Somnox app will search for 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi networks. Important! Somnox 2 only connects with a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network, not with a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network.

  4. If your mobile phone is connected to a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi, the name of your Wi-Fi network will automatically appear; otherwise, you will need to connect your mobile phone to Wi-Fi first in your phone settings.

  5. Click on your Wi-Fi network and fill in your Wi-Fi password. In most cases, you can find the password of your Wi-Fi network on the back of your Wi-Fi router.

  6. Click on Set to Somnox. Somnox 2 is now connected with your phone via Wi-Fi.

Once the Wi-Fi connection is set up and a software update is available, you can perform the software update. You can read how this works via the button below.


Where can you find your Wi-Fi password?

To set up a Wi-Fi connection, you will need the name and password of your Wi-Fi network. You can find the name and password of your Wi-Fi network on the back of your router. The password on your router is mostly called Key or Password.


How do you know whether you are connected with a 2.4 GHz or a 5 GHz Wi-Fi network?

The simplest way to check this is by going to your Wi-Fi settings on your phone and searching for available Wi-Fi networks.

One Wi-Fi network

If you only have one Wi-Fi network at home, you probably only have a 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi network. You can select this Wi-Fi network if the Somnox app asks for setting up a Wi-Fi connection.

Two Wi-Fi networks

If you have two Wi-Fi networks but just one router, you probably have both a 2.4 GHz network and a 5 GHz network.

If you have two Wi-Fi networks, the name of your Wi-Fi network should indicate which one is which.

  • If the Wi-Fi network contains 2.4G, 24G, 24, 2, or nothing extra, it is probably a 2.4 GHz network. For example:

    • NameOfYourRouter_2.4G_Wifi

    • YourWifi_24G

    • YourNetwork2

    • HomeNetwork

  • If the Wi-Fi network contains 5.0G, 5G, or 5, it is probably a 5 GHz network. For example:

    • NameOfYourRouter_5.0G_Wifi

    • YourWifi_5G

    • YourNetwork5


I cannot see in the name of the Wi-Fi network whether it is a 2.4 GHz network or a 5 GHz network. What should I do?

If you only have one Wi-Fi network at home, it is probably a 2.4 GHz network. Are you still experiencing trouble setting up a Wi-Fi connection with Somnox 2? With an Android phone, you can see in the Wi-Fi settings of your phone which frequency your Wi-Fi network uses. With an iPhone, you cannot, unfortunately, see this. You will have to contact your Internet provider and ask for help.
