1. Preliminary steps

This advanced network device works as wireless router, universal repeater and WISP client. Before setting up the router, you must verify that you have high-speed internet access available. The most widely used connection nowadays is broadband DSL, cable and AP modes. The description used in this guide is based on that type of connection.

2. Product layout

LED indicators on the front panel provide information about network activity, the connection and link status of the ports in real time. They also facilitate activity monitoring and troubleshooting the performance of the device.
