How to connect to the GoFlex Satellite™ from an iPad® / iPhone® / iPod® Touch


Instructions for connecting to the GoFlex Satellite's wifi network from an Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch.

Connecting to the GoFlex Satellite from an iPad® / iPhone® / iPod® Touch is a fairly simple process.

  1. Turn on the GoFlex Satellite by pressing the power button.



    You will not be able to connect via Wi-Fi and USB at the same time, so be sure the USB connection is not plugged in when you begin.
    The green power light should come on, followed by the Wi-Fi signal blinking blue light.
  2. Install the iPad®/iPhone®/iPod® Touch app.
    1. Open the App Store.
    2. Search for goflex media.


       
    3. Select the GoFlex Media App.
    4. Tap the Free and Install App buttons to install.


       
    5. Type your iTunes password to authorize the transaction.
    6. The app is now installed.
      (You must change networks before launching - see Step 3.)
  3. Connect to the GoFlex Satellite network.
    1. On the iPad, open Settings (the gear icon on the main screen).
    2. Tap Wi-Fi.


       
    3. Choose GoFlex Satellite. It may take a minute or two to appear.
    4. Enter the password if one was set on the GoFlex Satellite.
    5. Click the iPad Home button (the button on the middle bottom of the iPad) to exit Settings.
    6. Click the GoFlex App icon to launch.

You are now connected to the GoFlex Satellite. In the future, you can just connect to the GoFlex Satellite network and launch the GoFlex Satellite app to reconnect.

If you don't want to install the app, you can also connect to the Satellite via Safari (the Internet browser that came with your iPad) or via other apps that support DLNA media servers.

Some apps that support DLNA media servers also offer playback of a larger range of files, so if your media collection includes files not natively supported by the iPad, you might review what those other apps have to over.
