Quick Installation Guide

1600 Mbps Smart Mesh Access Point Air 4920
EASY SETUP: ACCESS POINT
1. Position one Air 4920 next to your router and connect the two using the enclosed Ethernet
cable (yellow plug).
2. Connect the Air 4920 device to the mains and press the power switch.
3. Wait until both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz LEDs are solid green  This may take up to 3 minutes.

4. Now, you can connect mobile devices to your new wireless network.Factory default network name and password are labeled on the bottom of the device.
– On each client (e.g. laptop, phone or tablet),
connect to the network on the label.
– Enter the network password when prompted.

5. (Optional) You can change network name (SSID) and password of your network.
Connect to your network, open the web browser and type “http://air4920.local” to the

EXTEND YOUR WiFi COVERAGE (MESH):
Preparation: Connecting the new Air 4920
1. In the room in which the router is located, position the new Air 4920 at a distance of around three
meters from the existing Air 4920 device, connect it in to the mains and wait until both 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz LEDs are flashing green ( 4 seconds ON, 4 seconds OFF ). This may take up to 3 minutes.

2. 2.a Press the WPS button on the existing Air 4920 (next to the router) for 2 seconds and
then on the new Air 4920 for 2 seconds (2.b).
The 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz LEDs start to flash and the devices connect automatically. This process may take up to five minutes. The connection has been established once the LEDs light up green (The 5 GHz LED will turn OFF briefly once in every 5 seconds).
Congratulations, you have successfully configured your new device. Your existing Air 4920 network credentials are automatically configured to your new Air 4920.

Note: If the 5GHz LED on the new device does not light up green within five minutes,
please repeat step 2.

Setting up the Air 4920 in the room of your choice
3. The new Air 4920 can now be unplugged and placed in the room of your choice.
The connection will be established automatically. This process will take up to three minutes.
Note: If 5 GHz LED does not light up green (The 5 GHz LED will turn OFF briefly once in every
5 seconds) within three minutes, please consult the chapter «Troubleshooting» (page 5).
4. (Optional) Now, you can connect wired devices (in this example, the Set-Top Box) to the Air 4920 using the ethernet cable (yellow plug).

5. (Optional) You can add additional Air 4920s to your network by repeating steps from 1.
Improving wireless coverage
If you would like to improve wireless coverage in another room, you can set up an additional Air 4920. You can also connect devices via Ethernet to this Air 4920 (for example a STB, computer or game console).

 

Improving range
If the location you want to cover is too far away from your existing Air 4920, you can install additional Air 4920s to reach there.
 

 

TIPS FOR BEST PERFORMANCE:
– Turn off wireless service on your modem.
– Keep units away from:
– Potential sources of electrical interference. Equipment that potentially cause interference include ceiling fans, home security systems, microwaves, PCs, and cordless phones (handset and base).
– Large metal surfaces and objects. Large objects and wide surfaces such as glass, insulated walls, fish tanks, mirrors, brick, and concrete walls can also weaken wireless signals.
– Sources and areas of heat such as ovens and sun rooms as well as direct sun light even if there is good air conditioning.

– Also, it is highly recommended that uninterruptable power supplies (UPSes) (or, at least, surge protectors) are used to protect Air 4920s and other electrical devices (VDSL modems, routers/gateways, set-top boxes, TVs, etc.) from electrical dangers. Electrical storms, voltage surges and other risks associated with the electrical power grid can cause significant damage to electrical devices. In additional, even a 1-second disruption in electrical power is likely to cause all modems, wireless clients, TVs, set-top boxes, etc. to be powered off or to be reset. Even if the equipment starts up automatically, it will be several minutes before all systems come back online and allow you to enjoy your Internet-based services.

TROUBLESHOOTING:

 

NOTES:
– Returning to factory settings:
To return unit to factory settings, press down on the reset button (in a small opening on the back) for 10 seconds. A metal paperclip (with an extended tip) or strong toothpick are typically good choices for this task. When the reset process is triggered, the LEDs in the front will temporarily “shimmer” and the unit will reboot (in about 3 minutes) to factory settings.

  1. I can not get the password to login to the extender, as mentioned in the manual the password is blanket, I try this and I didn’t get the access, and I search for the diff default password and I couldn’t find in the package of the or in the extender itself.

  2. i will never buy these again! they are good when they are working right, but when there down there is no one to call for help I have tried calling every number I can find

  3. I have a 2 airties units. One up stairs and the main unit connected to the modem down stairs. I have the one upstairs next to my fire cube but the cube will only connect to the one down stairs. It seems like several items by location is connecting to down stairs instead of the one up stairs. Is there a way to force these items to connect to the closes unit?

    1. I’m not support, but my understanding is that the unit connected to the modem establishes the network, and would be used throughout the house. Additional units will boost the signal, and extend the network established from the initial unit. So, you connect to the network established from the initial unit, and the additional unit boosts the signal for you.

  4. I am not the administrator of this board. This is what I learned today. For two years I was successfully using two AirTies 4920 units, that I had bought as a dual pack (so they both had the same factory-set wifi name and password). The original installation was easy.
    Today I added a third 4920 unit. Before I started, the original two units were working (the 5 GHz button flickered every 5 seconds). On my laptop, I saw one instance of that factory-set wifi name, and I could connect to it wirelessly using the factory-set password. I could also connect to either unit using an ethernet cable.
    At this point my computer could also see the powered-on third unit in its wifi network list, but I could not connect to it using its different factory-set wifi name and password. BTW, at some point, I reset all three units to their factory settings using a paper clip in the Reset hole hole near the power cord, but that was probably necessary only for the third unit which I bought “gently used”.
    The 4920 unit that is connected via ethernet cable to the router, is the master. To add the third unit, I powered it on about 5 feet from the master unit. No ethernet cable attached to the third unit. I pressed for 2 seconds the WPS button on the master unit. I then pressed on the third unit the WPS button for 2 seconds. I waited 3-5 minutes, and both units’ 5 GHz button started to flicker every 5 seconds (the third unit took longer). At that point, now with three units powered on, my computer saw only the wifi name of the master unit (the one connected via wire to the router).
    Using my router’s admin web page, I could see that the router was seeing all three units (each with a different IP address). Using the MAC address shown on the router admin page and at the bottom of the master unit, I identified the IP address of the master unit. Then on my laptop, I entered that IP address in a new browser tab, and that allowed me to change the wifi name and password. You are finished (do not try to change the wifi name and password on the other two units).
    Now, with all three working, I can walk around with my mobile devices and they automatically connect to the unit with the strongest signal. Very cool and useful. I wish I had done this two years ago.
    I kept the router’s wifi on. For me I am not seeing interference from it, so I am keeping it on as a back, just in case I have to switch back to the router’s wifi. BTW, in my situation, the wifi signal from all three units is much stronger than the router, and wireless speed is twice as fast, up and down.

  5. Is it possible to use this range extender with a third-party router? I need to know what the WPS pin code is does anyone know?
