You can thus get the internet connection in all the parts of the home. This guide will walk you through the Wavlink AC3000 dual-band WiFi mesh system setup process.
Wavlink mesh system comprises one mesh router and 1 or more satellites. You can add up to 10 satellites to the main router and keep them at various locations in your home to get trouble-free internet access. Let us now discuss how you can set up the Wavlink mesh system in your home.
Wavlink AC3000 Setup Instructions
Before setting up the Wavlink mesh system, you should first unbox the package. In the package, you will receive two or more nodes (mesh devices), power adapters, an RJ-45 networking cable, and a user guide. Make sure you have received everything in good condition.
Now, use the steps given ahead to execute the setup process:
1. Place the Router and Satellites
You have received two or more devices in the box. Select any one of these nodes as the main router. This main router is to be backhaul connected with the main gateway or the modem. All other satellites are connected to the main router.
So begin by placing the devices. The router has to be placed closer to the modem since you need to get them connected.
After that, place all the satellites nearby. After the connections have been established, you can relocate the router and satellites to new locations for internet access.
2. Make the Connections Between the Devices
The main Wavlink AC3000 router needs to be connected to the modem. So, use the networking cable that you have received in the package and connect these two devices. You need to join the LAN port on the modem to the Internet port on the router.
3. Supply Power to the Devices
Now, begin supplying power to the Wavlink devices as well as the modem. Firstly power up your modem. Connect the power adapters to the Wavlink devices and then plug them into the well-working electrical outlets. Use the Power buttons on the devices to turn them on.
4. Access the Wavlink AC3000 Setup Page
Now, grab your computer and connect it to the main router’s network. The SSID that you need to select will be like this: WAVLINK-Mesh_XXX. Select this from the list of available networks. After connecting to the network, load an internet browser.
In the location bar, type the default IP address 192.168.10.1 or the login URL wifi.wavlink.com to access the login page.
On the wifi.wavlink.com login page, key in the default admin password and click log in. The default admin password is ‘admin.’
You will land on the Wavlink setup page.
5. Complete the Setup Process
On the setup screen, you will be prompted with the setup instructions. You need to go on executing these instructions as they appear on the screen. You will also have to connect the satellites to the main router. After you have completed following the prompts, you will be done with the Wavlink mesh system setup.
Done With the Wavlink Mesh Setup. What’s Next?
Once the Wavlink AC3000 setup is done, you need to relocate the devices. When you are shifting the devices, you need to consider a few points:
- The main router can be left connected to the modem using the same cable.
- You can also choose to get the main router and modem connected wirelessly.
- In the case of a wireless mode, make sure that the new location for the router is within the modem’s range.
- The same is true with the satellites. Make sure that you are placing the satellites in such a way that they keep getting signals from the main Wavlink router.
- The new locations for all devices should be in interference-free areas.
- Choose open, airy, and higher locations for better signal transmission.
We hope you have found the best locations for all your Wavlink AC3000 devices and have shifted them to their new locations. You should now connect to the WiFi and check the signals. Move around the home and check signal quality. Accordingly, if needed, make the required changes so that you get the best possible WiFi signals from all the Wavlink devices.
