Kerlink Hotspot new account page redirects you to the Apps store to download the Helium Hotspot application. If you already have the application installed, you can launch it via this same link.
Setting up Helium Wallet with Helium App:
First step is to create an account and a personal wallet.
Please read those pages from Helium.com carefully: Helium - Twelve Words Seed Phrase Helium - Helium Wallet App
Your Wallet is the ONLY way to access to your Hotspot. If you lose your pin code and/or your 12/24 unique word passphrase you will lose your Hotspot too!
Kerlink can not change the Wallet, a FACTORY RESET will not solve your problem. Hotspot is fully lost.
You will be taken step by step to generate a 24 unique word passphrase and set a pin code.
As the Helium App says, it is crucial that you write all of the 24 words down in the correct order and store this in a safe location. If you do not you risk not being able to re-gain access to your HNT wallet. Make a note of your Helium Wallet address, which will be required in the next step.
Web Onboarding: click on the link to onboard your Hotspot. You will be redirected to the Kerlink Onboarding web page
To onboard your Hotspot, we need to identify it. You can find QR codes or Serial Numbers (ID) directly on your product, or on the box you received it in.
You may also enter any serial number (or “ID”):
MAC address 70:76:FF:YY:YY:YY
Board ID XXiYYYYYY or ZZZXXiYYYYYY (on the Hotspot)
Product ID XXiYYYYYY or ZZZXXiYYYYYY (on the Hotspot)
Packaging ID XXiYYYYYY or ZZZXXiYYYYYY (on the box)
One more serial number (or “ID”) is needed to register the Hotspot. You can provide the MAC address, Board ID or Product ID from the product label.
Please note that Board ID and EUI are considered as the same serial number (or “ID”), so you should use MAC address, Product ID or Packaging ID for 1 step of the onboarding.
