Connecting to an Open Network, a Wi-Fi network without a password is tricky on the glasses because most open networks throw up a webpage upon connecting, think of Wi-Fi at the Airport or Cafes. Since the glasses don't have a screen reader or a keyboard for input, navigating these web pages become almost impossible. That said, there is a way to connect to an Open Network through special permission, for instance at your office or workplace.
For the first setup, Envision Glasses must use a protected network. a Wi-Fi network with a password, such as a personal hotspot or home Internet. For more information, see Pairing your Envision Glasses
After connecting your Envision Glasses to a protected network, you will need to request your IT or Accommodations Department to manually whitelist your Envision Glasses device. When they do that, you can connect to the Open Network, without running into the webpage for authentication.
For this, they might request you for the MAC Address of the Envision Glasses. To find the MAC Address, follow these steps:
Step 1: Go to the Help tab on Envision Glasses
Step 2: Do a one-finger swipe forward until you hear About, and do a one-finger double tap to select this option.
Step 3: Navigate to the option MAC Address, this will speak out a 12-digit unique number.
