and if you tap reconnect, it will not find the pod. It will not connect. (In later firmware versions, there will be a config (wrench along the reconnect button and you can connect in this manner)
To pair the handset to the hub- go to the main menu>tap the configuration (wrench)>networks>Wifi
This will open a view that shows Hub, SSID CORTEX- 00000000
Tap on this SSID
You will then be able to see the WiFi SSID of your device
