FAQs
 

  1. Where Is The Best Location To Place the u4m Mesh When Using the Wireless Backhaul?
    a. WiFi degrades as it goes through things: walls, ceilings, furniture, appliances, etc. The u4m mesh should be placed no more than 2 interior walls away from the main Gigaspire. In order for the u4m mesh to work well, it needs to have a good connection back to the main Gigaspire.
     
  2. Will The u4m Mesh Extend The Wifi Signal To A Detached Building Such As A Garage Or Barn?
    a. Maybe! The u4m mesh is designed to help cover a home with WiFi. If you’re using the Wireless Backhaul, the signal strength may degrade too much for a good connection back to the main Gigaspire by the time it goes through the exterior wall of the home and then the exterior wall of the other building.
    b. The best connection would be to run an Ethernet cable from the main Gigaspire in the house to the detached building and use the u4m mesh as a hardwired unit. You may need a contractor to help you achieve this.
     
  3. Can Multiple u4m Mesh Units Be Used To Cover A Home With Strong Wifi?
    a. Yes! Each u4m mesh must be connected back to the main Gigaspire, but you can put one above, below, to the left, to the right, or anywhere you can run an Ethernet cable.
