Power up both the Network and Coverage Units, wait for them to establish a connection to each other.
Connect your PRO 'Coverage Unit' to your computer using a 'USB to Micro-USB' cable and wait for device driver to install. This cable is not included with PRO and needs to be purchased seperately. The Micro-USB port can be found under the base of the coverage unit.
This cable is quite common and you may have one already, It is often used for charging a Samsung/LG/Sony phones, with cameras for transfering photos and other computer hardware.
If the computer software does not find your Cel-Fi, then restart the computer application. Once found WAVE will automatically search for updates.
If an update is found press the 'Update' button. This process may take 2 - 20 minutes depending on your internet speed. 'Update Complete' will appear once successful and press OK.
On your smart phone search for 'Cel-Fi WAVE' on the iPhone or Android store. Run the App when you are next to the coverage unit and it will automatically connect. You will need to disconnect the USB cable before launching the App.
