  39. Guys please give full step by step directions when you direct somebody and do not take into account the person’s commonsense to do the job because he/she will follow your directions as provided. So with that being said I will like to add a step between 5 and 6:

    STEP 5 1/2 :

    After you connect your wifi router again, you will be asked for a password again. This is the password that is written in the back of the product under the battery. That is, this is the password that came with the product.

    After this you follow step 6 as directed.
