What is the maximum Wi-Fi speed of a pod?

AccessSmart Wi-Fi+ pods are tri-band, with more radios to increase speeds and coverage throughout the home and support all of our internet packages. Maximum device Wi-Fi speed is dependent on several factors such as:

  • Your internet package
  • Overall network traffic
  • Number and type of hops to the gateway pod
  • Type of network application
  • Environmental radio interference and signal strength of the connections  
  • Wi-Fi capabilities of your individual device  

What is the range of the pod?

The range varies because of all the variables and configurations inside a home. While every home is unique, the pods have an estimated range of 30-40 ft through walls and 60-80 ft for large open spaces. If you have more than one pod, the system automatically measures the performance between each pod and creates the best pod-to-pod connections for you after optimization completes.

Do pods support PoE?

Pods must be plugged into a regular power outlet. Wired PoE devices require a separate power supply.

What does the LED light on my pod mean?

When initially plugging in any pod into an outlet, the light should always turn solid for a moment, and then the LED will slowly pulse while it is trying to connect. Once connected, the LED will then turn off.
Blinking green LED:
This could mean either of the following:

  • Quick, repeating double blinks – your pod is waiting for optimization to finish. Optimizations usually take a 2-3 minutes, depending on how many pods are connected. Optimizations can be triggered by a change in your environment such as high levels of interference, but will also happen overnight and immediately after initial setup.
  • Quick double blinks - pod is being named or renamed by scanning the pod.
  • Slow continuous pulse/breathing (dim to bright) - pod is trying to connect.
    • This is normal before adding the pod to your account, the slow pulse will continue until the pod is added to your account and establishes a connection. 
    • The pod has lost connection to the rest of your network, which could be a result of poor signal to other pods, especially if the other pods are still online and you have not received an a lost internet connectivity notification.
    • Internet connectivity is lost. This is supposed to be followed by a "Network is offline” notification.

Blinking red LED:
This could mean either of the following:

  • Continuous rapid blinking - there may be an issue with the onboard software. Contact us for more assistance.
  • Rapid continuous red blinking - Possible fan failure. Contact us for more assistance.
