2. Setup your AR Infinite Radio accounts
To simplify setup on the radio please complete these steps:
A. Find the Setup Information Card that contains your radio’s MAC address number (MAC: 00-21-2AXX-XX-XX) and activation PIN # (PIN: XXXX). (This number is also found in the Device Info screen

Follow the polarity markers in the battery compartment. The batteries power the clock and alarm*
whenever the radio loses electricity. We recommend that you replace the batteries every year (or
more often in case of multiple power outages) to avoid low battery power. Otherwise, clock and
alarm accuracy may be affected when electricity supply is interrupted.
* When the battery backup functions, the clock display will not light. However, the function of alarm still occurs during the power
interruption if remaining battery power is adequate.

About password:
• Do not get your Network Password
confused with your Windows or Mac
system logon password since they can be
different.
• Some wireless access point or routers
may call the Wireless Network Password
a passphrase or key. These terms are the
same.
About passphrase:
• This radio supports secured access points
using the Wireless Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) keys or Wi-Fi Protected Access
(WPA and WPA2) standards.
• WEP keys are either 10 or 26 characters
long (characters: 0-9 and A-F) (e.g.
6E78214A52). Note that some Wi-Fi
routers support passphrase generation
for WEP security. However, there is no
industry standard for WEP passphrase
generation and this radio does not
support WEP passphrases.
• If you are using a WEP secured access
point, enter the WEP key (HEX format)
instead of the passphrase.
