Using Wireless Plus

Understanding how your Seagate Wireless Plus operates helps keep your device charged and ready to stream your media library.

Understanding Wi-Fi Mode

The Seagate Wireless Plus serves as a Wi-Fi network allowing you to stream your media to other devices. When the wireless device is physically connected to your computer, Wi-Fi mode is disabled.

No Color Wi-Fi disabled and powered off.

Connecting the device to your computer

If you are using the device to broadcast Wi-Fi and then physically connect the device to your computer, the Wi-Fi LED turns from blue to white and Wi-Fi is disabled.

Disconnecting the device from your computer

If the device is turned on and is physically connected to your computer, the Wi-Fi LED is white. If you disconnect the device from the computer, the device searches for a network and the LED turns solid blue when it begins broadcasting.

If the device has not been turned on and is physically connected to your computer, the Wi-Fi LED is white. If you disconnect the device from the computer, the Wi-Fi LED has no color because the device is turned off and unable to broadcast over Wi-Fi.

  TIP: If your Seagate Wireless Plus is not working as you expect, reset the device by pressing and holding the power button for 15 seconds. This turns off the LEDs, and then shuts down and restarts the device.

Working with the Battery

The Seagate Wireless Plus uses a rechargeable lithium-ion battery.

Charging the Battery

  • To charge the battery, connect the device to a power outlet using the included USB to DC wall adapter.

Battery LED ColorDescription
Green Charged—A fully charged battery provides up to 10 hours of continuous streaming, but loses the charge faster when playing higher resolution video. The battery retains its charge for up to 25 hours when the device is in standby mode, which occurs after 5 minutes of inactivity.
Red Low—The battery needs to be charged. When the LED turns red, the battery has about 15–20 minutes of life and should be charged soon.
Amber Charging—The device is plugged in and charging. Recharging takes about 4 hours. For safety purposes, the device stops charging after 4 hours.

Your Seagate Wireless Plus also charges when it is physically connected to a computer but at a slower rate.

Recycling the Battery

The battery is not user-replaceable and is affected by the number of charge cycles. It must be disposed of properly.

Resetting Your Device to Its Factory Settings

For a variety of reasons, you might need to reset your Seagate Wireless Plus back to its original factory settings.

  • Press and release the button located on the bottom of your device. No data is lost during this process, and you do not need to reconfigure the device.
