Quick Start Guide
For the Motherbored V1
Thanks for joining Boring for the Live Beta!
Once you have plugged your device into a power source and your internet router you will need to allow the software to complete an over-the-air update. Now head to your network settings and connect to the network named โ€œMotherBored.โ€Default password: "motherboring" or "motherbored". If this network is not displayed in your available networks you may need to wait a moment while the OS in your device boots.
After Connecting please head to http://mybox.motherbored/ to set up your device.
You may notice a few things missing from the UI. For instance, you will not be able to immediately connect a wallet nor will you need to stake the minimum 6250 $bop to your node to operate it. This current and earliest test environment removes the need to connect a wallet to use the network. This is to allow our testers to use the network without having to pay while testing. In fact, at the end of the test cycle, we will be rewarding users.
To set up your node please select โ€œBox Modeโ€ and select exit or client node. Exit allows you to connect to other users in the network that are looking to access web content. Client means you wish to access other exit nodes to get to the content you seek.

Common Solutions

If you are not having any success accessing the interface, try accessing the interface directly by typing into your internet browser.
If this does not solve this issue, unplug and plug back in your Motherbored device.
If the above issue still persists, please ensure your SD card in the MotherBored is seated properly. You will have to open your Node for this step. Assistance with this can be found in the "Boredroom" Discord channel.
If you have an issue with "Bad Connection" in Client Mode, please try switching quickly between "Provider" and "Client" in the "Box Mode" tab of the GUI.
If you still have difficulty and cannot connect, please join Discord and a team member will assist you every step of the way!
