Installation of a Remote Hub is exactly the same as installation of a Gateway Hub. We recommend that you initialize Remote Hubs by connecting them to your Router and have them check in to download your network's information. If you don't initialize them, they'll still work, but it may take quite a while (hours) for them to connect to the mesh and work properly.
Once initialized, just plug the Hub's Power Supply into the wall, mount the Hub (high and in the clear), and run an Ethernet cable from the "POE" port of the Power Supply to the Hub. You can also connect any device you want to join the network into the "LAN" port of the Power Supply, and it will appear on the Hub's network. You can even connect an Ethernet switch to the LAN port of the Power Supply if you want to connect multiple devices.
The bottom two lights on the Remote Hub are the same as for the Gateway Hub - the bottom light is power, the second light shows Ethernet activity (if something is plugged into the "LAN" port).
The top four lights are the "signal" lights, and indicate the data throughput from the Remote Hub to the Gateway as follows:
- Just the bottom (red) light - Connected, but low throughput (less than one million bits per second, or 1 Mbps)
- Bottom (red) and second (yellow) lights - moderate throughput, 1-2 Mbps
- Bottom (red), second (yellow), and third (green) lights - good throughput, 2-3 Mbps
- Bottom (red), second (yellow), third (green), and top (green) lights - excellent throughput, more than 3 Mbps
The lights take about 10 minutes to actually show an accurate indication of the throughput, and then they change every 5 minutes.
