If you haven’t changed any settings after the installation, the Wi-Fi network name and password of your Mesh network is same as of the Mesh Home 1200 unit  that is connected to your router/modem by an Ethernet cable and printed on the product label on the bottom of the product. Alternatively, you can find the Wi-Fi network name and password of your Mesh network in the Quick Installation Guide of your original Mesh Home 1200.
All of the Mesh Home 1200 units devices are identical. There is no master and slave configuration and you can connect any of them to your modem/router and any of them to your devices with an Ethernet port.

  • Do not place the second unit too far away or too close (minimum 3 meters). Make sure that there are maximum two walls or one floor between the Mesh Home 1200 units.
  • Take advantage of openings that can provide an unobstructed path between units (corridors, stair cases, doors, atriums, kitchen pass through windows, etc.).
  • If the Mesh Home 1200  units have one or more walls in between, then align them vertically and horizontally as much as possible.
  • Position the Mesh Home 1200  units so that the 5 GHz LED is solid green 3 minutes after being turned on. If the 5 GHz LED is red (solid or blinking), then the unit must to be positioned closer to another unit that has a solid green 5 GHz LED.
Mesh Home 1200 unit  scans the air to determine the best available Wi-Fi channel (to avoid interference) to use in a Mesh network after it is powered on. Also, Mesh Home 1200  uses 5 GHz Wi-Fi band and it is compatible to IEEE 802.11ac with an advantage of using UNII-2 (Ch.52-64) and UNII-2-Extended (Ch.100-112) bands (known as DFS channels) in priority. According to the radio communication regulations, Mesh Home 1200  runs a radar scan before it gets started to service on DFS channels. These operations take approximately 3 minutes before the Mesh Home 1200  starts to service and to be fully operational.
Pairing attempt failed. Make sure the additional unit is near a unit with a green 5 GHz LED and try the Connect & Secure button again. It is safest to set up pairing with two Mesh Home 1200 Add-on units when the additional unit Mesh Home 1200 Add-on unit is in the same room as an existing operational Mesh unit. After a successful pairing, you can move the additional Mesh Home 1200 Add-on unit to another area.
