Setup with WPS
Verify that the wireless adapter in the Envoy is plugged in securely to the left slot near the power cable. Also verify that your wireless router supports Wi-Fi WPS. Most routers have a dedicated button, however in some cases you may need to read the manual to determine how to enable this function.
1. Press and hold the WPS button on the wireless router (or access point) for two seconds. On many routers, the WPS button flashes at this point.
2. Within two minutes, return to the Envoy. Press and hold the Envoy menu button until the Envoy Menu appears. Release the Envoy menu button when Enable Wi-Fi WPS
appears on the LCD screen.
3. Within two minutes an updated IP address appears on the Envoy LCD screen. This IP address begins with a “W” to indicate that a wireless connection is established.
4. If the updated IP address does not appear, retry the previous steps as the connection window may have timed out.
5. Within 5 minutes, the Envoy LCD screen displays +Web, indicating a successful connection to Enphase.
Setup without WPS
If your router does not support Wi-Fi WPS or you do not wish to use Wi-Fi WPS, you can follow these steps to establish a wireless connection using one of the listed protocols:
1. Using a cat-5(Ethernet) cable, connect the Envoy to a laptop or PC on your network.
2. The envoy will then display an IP Address
3. Type this IP address into the address bar of your internet browser
4. This will prompt you to log into the Envoy
5. To log in, enter “admin” as the username and “admin” as the password
6. Access the Envoy Administrator page
7. Select on Wi-Fi configuration
8. Select the wireless network and enter the password
9. Click on “Test Connection”
10. Once the Test connection is successful click on “Join Network”
11. You have now connected the envoy to the router via Wi-Fi
12. Unplug Cat-5 and relocate the envoy to the dedicated outlet where it was originally

Microinverters not reporting
The Microinverters Not Reporting system status typically arises when the Envoy is too far away from the load center or when there is interference on the power lines between the microinverters and the Envoy. It can usually be addressed by the homeowner and should not require a maintenance visit. Try the following tasks to restore reporting between the microinverters and the Envoy:
For Envoys that use a power cord:
● If the Envoy was moved from its original location, it may be plugged into an outlet that is too far from the electrical panel (site load center). Return the Envoy to the original location or to an outlet as close to the electrical panel as possible.
● Make sure that the Envoy is plugged directly into an outlet and not into a surge protector, extension cord or power strip. Ideally, the outlet should not be a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupt) type.
● Make sure that no other devices are plugged into the same outlet as the Envoy.
For any Envoy, regardless of power source:
● If any of these devices use the same circuit as the Envoy, move the device to another circuit and see if this resolves the issue:
○ Power strips and surge protectors
○ UPS (uninterruptible power supply) or battery backup units
○ Touch lamps
○ Battery chargers or AC adapters like those used for cell phone and laptop chargers, especially for older devices
○ Heavy rotating motors in devices like fans, refrigerators, freezers, or water pumps
○ Workshop equipment like a drill press, table saw, wood router, or planer
○ Electronic pest deterrents
● Finally, any older or failing compact fluorescent light (CFL) installed in your home may cause interference. Remove the CFL, then check to see if reporting is restored.
