if its an old desktop, my guess is the Ethernet port is limited to 100 mpbs. The new ones shud have gigabit ports.


when the 5ghz light is red, 2.4ghz is till working fine. If the location for this unit is fixed, u can try adjusting the location of the other units to get better 5ghz reception.


Even my Apple TV4 Ethernet is limited to 100 mbps. So wireless on ATV4 is faster then wired.
oic. I am using Acer desktop Predator G3610

Base on the desktop spec as follow;

Data Link Protocol - Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet, IEEE 802.11b, IEEE 802.11g, IEEE 802.11n

So got any limitation ?

Bro, carrying the whole desktop + monitor + keyboard + mouse + cable all the way to living room just for testing of speed via wired ...hmmmmm

By the way, I do a test last night. by turning my 2nd wifi mesh which is in the middle off. I notice the 1st mesh 5ghz turn red, and 3rd mesh 5ghz turn red. Only left with 2.4ghz green. To my surprise , the speed is like faster then having both 5ghz and 2.4 ghz green. kinda funny

Hi toyknight,

Yes, the WiFi Mesh can be purchased at our Singtel Retail Shops and you can bring home to install on your own.

There is no need for an appointment for the technician to install for you. It's plug and play.

Hope that clarifies.

Is the connection seemless? Im currently on another RSP and their technician set up the router in my room as a wifi extender. The phone will detect this extender but means it will change from router to this extender. There will be interruption if watching long youtube video.

Yes it's almost seamless. The backhaul is not as big, your device shouldn't detect a drop in connection although practically there's a split second drop. Most devices should have a buffer, so ideally you won't even notice any difference for watching long YouTube videos.

Will the wifi mesh devices still work if I connect both of them to the router via lan points in different room?

not at the moment. soon enough a firmware update will enable this feature. By doing so, the mesh becomes access points to each other while offering automatic roaming without backhaul.

Currently, only one node can be connected to router and the other paired node must be on wireless bridge.

Red but not blinking? If it's blinking it indicates error. If it's not, it might mean out of coverage.

Try putting them closer together..
