OLR (Online Live Results) is upon us and now we need to get our timing computers connected to the local network AND to the Internet.

What you need:

A mobile hotspot or a recent smartphone with hotspot enabled/allowed.
Power cable for your mobile hotspot device

Here are the basics

  • Plug your timing computer into the wireless router via an ethernet cable
  • Connect to your mobile hotspot via WiFi or directly attach it to the computer via USB
  • Configure the computer to make the hotspot connection the "priority". Just follow the instructions for your operating system (listed below)
