Now, let’s start, shall we?
Step 1: The first thing you’ve got to do is grab an ethernet cable. After you’ve got an Ethernet cable, do this. Run it through the existing primary router or the existing modern router.
Either will do so just use the one that has an outport.
Step 2: Now it’s time to connect the ethernet cable with the outport of the primary or modern router. Make sure the ethernet cable is connected firmly on both ends. The original router and the secondary one (modern or primary router).
Step 3: Now it’s time to take the final step for connecting both routers. Turn on the power source and wait for a few minutes so the power source can do the booting and start broadcasting wireless networks.
This process wouldn’t take any longer than 5 minutes. So after 5 minutes, turn on the power outlet.
Now that the secondary router is attached and ready to work, it’s time to take the next step. It’s time to connect the Vivint smart hub to Wi-Fi.

Why is my Vivint Smart hub not connecting to Wi-Fi?
Causes and Solutions
There are 3 causes why your Vivint smart hub is not connecting to the Wi-Fi. Below, we’ve written all of them and their solutions.
Incorrect password: We’ve explained this one already. Also, this one is not a puzzle because if you’ve typed your password wrong you won’t be able to connect your smart hub to Wi-Fi.
So, if your smart hub is not connecting to the internet, try typing in your password and again and really make sure that you’re typing everything right.
Problem with outlet: Check your power outlet. If there is something wrong with the power outlet and it’s not providing the current that is needed for the router to work, your smart hub won’t be able to connect to the internet.
If that’s the case with your outlet, buy a new one.
Wire not working: The wire that is connecting your original router to the secondary router is supposed to work properly and attach properly. If it doesn’t work, then you’ll need to buy a new wire. If it’s not attached properly, then simply attach the wire properly and reap the benefits.
That’s it! Now it’s time to conclude our post.
