Use anywhere from 2-10 Mesh Points on a single network.
Note: A minimum of 2 Mesh Points are required to create a connection for this
scenario.
2.1 Device Setup
The following steps show how to setup your Whole-Home WiFi Mesh System
using Ethernet Pairing. For additional setup options (including WPS), please refer
to the User Manual available online.
NOTE: If you are using a Comtrend WiFi Mesh-Supported Gateway, then the
Mesh Points will work in conjunction with your Gateway’s WiFi. If you are not
using a Comtrend WiFi Mesh-Supported Gateway, then the WiFi Mesh Points will
create a separate WiFi Mesh System (Note: This application will require at least
two WiFi Mesh Devices to create a Mesh System).
1. Connect one end of an Ethernet Cable into each Mesh Point (WAP-5922) that
you wish to have in your Whole-Home WiFi Mesh System. For this example, we
will use two Mesh Points.
2. Plug the Mesh Points into an outlet near your Network Device (Router,
Modem).

Cable
Steps 1-2
16
3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet Cables into your Network Device. The
pairing process will then automatically begin.
4. Wait until all WPS/Grouping LED’s light up solid (around 3 to 5 minutes). This
means the two Mesh Point’s are now in the same WiFi Mesh System. If you are using
a Comtrend WiFi Mesh-Supported Gateway, then the two Mesh Points are now in the
same WiFi Mesh System as the Comtrend Gateway as well.
17
5. Disconnect the Ethernet Cables and unplug the Mesh Points. Then find a suitable
location for each Mesh Point with an accessible power outlet. The Mesh Points should
be placed in different directions between the Network Device and the areas farthest
from the Network Device.
NOTE: If you are not using a Comtrend WiFi Mesh-Supported Gateway, then you will
need to leave one Mesh Point connected via Ethernet to the Network Device.
The following LED’s will show you if you
have the optimal placement.

6. Once the Mesh Points are plugged into their new locations, wait for the
WPS/Grouping LEDs to light up solid. This means they are grouped again and the
WiFi Mesh System is ready to use.
7. To add new Mesh Points to the Mesh System, simply plug the new device(s)
into an outlet and press the WPS Button for 2-3 seconds. Within two minutes,
press the WPS Button on a Mesh Point in the existing system. The WPS/Grouping
LED will light up solid.
18
8. If you are using a Comtrend WiFi Mesh-Supported Gateway, then
the WiFi Mesh System will automatically use the original WiFi
settings on your Gateway. If you are using a Non-Comtrend
WiFi-Supported Gateway, then please reference the back of the
Mesh Point that is connected to the Gateway for the default SSID
and Password WiFi settings.
If you would like to change your network’s SSID or Password please
continue to section 2.1.1.
2.1.1 WiFi Network Setup
1. You can now use your computer’s Wireless configuration
utility to search for a Wireless Network name such as: repeater0003.
(The default SSID of this Mesh point is ‘repeater0003’, and 0003 is
for reference. It will be the last 4 digits of the device’s MAC number.)
2. Open your Web browser, and input ‘http://comtrend.setup’ in the address
bar.
19
3. The system will prompt you to input the username and password. Default
username is ‘admin’ and password is ‘1234’. Click the ‘OK’ button to continue.
4. After you log into the Webpage, input your WiFi network name in the ‘Device
SSID’ field, and also the password in the ‘KEY’ field for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz
WiFi networks. After the configuration, click the ‘APPLY’ button to finish the setup.
The devices will reboot, and when the WPS/Grouping LEDs on all of the Mesh
Points light up solid, the Whole-Home WiFi Mesh System is ready.

Chapter 3 Repeater Mode
This chapter will explain how to quickly install this device by using the quick setup
method and explain each detailed setting on the web user interface while in repeater
mode.
3.1 Repeater Mode Quick Installation Guide
For first time setup and installation, move this Wireless Mesh Point close to the
Wireless Broadband Router or Access point you wish to connect to. After installation
is complete, move this Wireless Mesh Point to the place you wish to permanently
wish to use it.
Plug this Wireless Mesh Point into a power outlet on the wall, and you should see the
‘Power’ LED light up in few seconds. If not, check if the power outlet you’re using is
working.
You can setup the wireless connection via the ‘Hardware WPS button’ or ‘Software
web browser’.
If your broadband router or access point also supports a ‘WPS button’, we
recommend you to use the WPS button to establish connection.
21
Using WPS button
- please go to section 3.1.1
Using Web browser
- please go to section 3.1.2
3.1.1 Hardware WPS button setup
1.
Press and hold the WPS button on the Wireless Mesh Point for 2 seconds, the
‘WPS’ LED will start flashing.
WPS button

2.
Press the WPS button on the wireless broadband router or access point you
wish to connect to within 2 minutes.
22
NOTE: the WPS button position on the access point above is for reference;
different devices may have different WPS button positions or locations.
TIP: If the access point you wish to connect to does not have a hardware
WPS button, you can also use its web configuration menu’s WPS function
to establish connection. Or you can login to the WAP-5922’s web user
interface to perform quick setup (for detailed setup refer to ‘3.1.2 Web
browser quick setup’ manual)
3. When WPS connection is successfully established, the Wireless Mesh Point will
reboot immediately to make your settings take effect ; if the ‘WPS’ LED flashes
fast, a problem has occurred, please wait for 2 minutes until the ‘WPS’ LED goes
off, and start from step(1) again.
When quick installation is successful, the ‘Signal’ LED will turn on.
