THIRD: Run the provided coaxial cable between the Base Unit and Signal Antenna.
Use the provided 50 feet of RG-6 cable to connect the Signal Antenna and the Base Unit. Should you need additional cable length, 15 foot extensions (Part #: YX030-15w) are available at www.Wi-Ex.com. Please note: Cable longer than 65 feet is not recommended.
FOURTH: Connect the zBoost Base Unit to the provided power supply and plug into a power outlet.
When your zBoost system is in place and fully connected, walk throughout your home or office and verify that you are able to reliably place calls. If the signal strength has improved, your zBoost is working. Remember, coverage varies based on outdoor signal level, building construction, and antenna placement. Coverage in adjoining rooms (next to, above, or below) will be reduced by walls and ceiling/floors.
Upon initial power up, a solid GREEN LED should appear indicating normal conditions. If a RED light appears, adjustments may be needed to optimize performance. If you find the increased signal coverage is acceptable, however, no additional adjustments are needed. See LED Indicator section for more information.
Should you desire to improve coverage, you may:
- Relocate the Signal Antenna in order to capture a better signal –higher is usually better.
- Increase the distance between the Base Unit Antenna and the Signal Antenna.
- Purchase an upgrade antenna available at www.Wi-Ex.com.
