Internet How do I install the Mesh Wi-Fi Extender?

If you need to expand your network, an SKT Mesh WiFi Extender will provide you with an additional access point, called a satellite. These satellites “mesh” with your SKT Router to help you get a strong WiFi signal and eliminate dead spots throughout your home, and even in your garage or backyard. The SKT Mesh WiFi Extender is easy to install, activate, and maintain. For only $4 per month, you can lease the Mesh. Choose free professional installation or self-installation.

If you choose self-installation, follow these instructions:

  1. Plug in the power cord to the Mesh power port and into the wall outlet. (Pro tip: for the best success in pairing the device to your existing equipment, start this process near your router. Once the Mesh unit is paired, move it to the desired location.)
  2. Press and hold the WPS button on the SKT Router for at least 8 seconds, release the WPS and the LED will blink amber.
  3. Go to the Mesh and hold the WPS button until the signal strength LED begins to flash (you have a maximum of 2 minutes between button pushes).
  4. The services should now be paired with each other.

If the signal strength indicator is red, the Mesh is too close to the router. When the indicator is green, they are at an optimal distance from each other.
