What type of network is supported?
Canary is compatible with 2.4GHz Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) networks that are encrypted with WEP/WPA/WPA2.
Canary is not compatible with networks that require a splash page or a secondary login.
What is a 2.4GHz Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) router?
Here’s how it breaks down:
- 2.4GHz - The wireless frequency broadcast from your router.
- 802.11 - The wireless networking standard in use since 1997, and is synonymous with consumer routers. Don’t worry about this number.
- b/g/n - These letters refer to generations of wireless technology, which are backwards compatible. This means that Canary can connect to older routers.
Can Canary connect to a 5GHz network?
Canary can only connect to a 2.4GHz network, but many newer routers can broadcast both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks simultaneously.
Is there a minimum internet connection speed required to use Canary?
While some Canary features may work with slower network upload speeds, Canary requires a network upload speed of at least one megabit per second (1 Mbps) for an optimal experience.
Visit www.speedtest.net to run a speed test on your network to determine if it meets the minimum requirements. If the results show that your upload speed is below 1 Mbps or if your ping is above 180 ms, you may experience inconsistent service.
