FAQ

The PiFi kit can work at distances up to 2 miles under ideal circumstances. Typical expectations are 100 yards to 1000 yards.

For the best performance clear line of sight is important. Try to aim the PiFi with the least amount of trees and other obstacles blocking the “view”.

Any router off the shelf is compatible with the PiFi kit except those sold by Apple and routers/modems provided by your ISP. 

For best performance and compatibility  we recommend our tested high speed dual band router.

Yes as long as it’s not an Apple router or a router/modem provided by your ISP.

The “wireless bridge” between the two locations must happen on the 24Ghz frequency. The PiFi cannot “see” 5Ghz networks. However the router at the second location is capable of working on 5GHz as well as 2.4Ghz. 

We keep the “wireless bridge” working on 2.4Ghz due to its better performance over far distances.

It’s strongly recommended. Heavy forest and other buildings will make it difficult but if you have some light brush or a patch of trees that still allows for you to visually see the 2 location, then you are good to go.

Set aside at least 30 minutes for mounting of equipment outside and running your cable inside. The network configuration should take less than 3 minutes.

We honor a 30 day return policy for a full refund on your product minus shipping. If you are unsure if it will work for you, please contact support to discuss options.

Do you have access to the network you are trying to connect too? If the network you want to use on the PiFI has a password, you must enter it when prompted. 

If the signal is not password protected but it belongs to an ISP, hotel, coffee shop, etc.., you might need to sign in via a splash page. Once you click on the network you want to use, a pop-up should come up or be available to click on the URL bar which will bring up the page for you to input your credentials.

Power cycle the PiFi by unplugging the power source to the POE for 20 seconds, then plug it back in and wait 1 minute for the boot up to complete. If that doesn’t work… 

Make sure you are following the instructions to properly configure the PiFi. In case you are following the instructions EXACTLY, plug the black POE jack directly into a PC to be hardwired to the PiFi. Then turn off the WiFi on that PC so ensure the only possible network connection is the PiFi. If that doesn’t work then power cycle the PiFi and try again. 

Call us if it doesn’t work.

Make sure the PiFi’s panel antenna is aiming directly at the source. Remove as many obstructions as possible. 

If that doesn’t work try moving the router at the source location closer to the wall that the PiFi is point at. 

Last option is to increase your source’s outbound signal with an outdoor hot spot kit.

The pifi can only see 2.4ghz networks. It’s possible you are looking for a 5ghz network?

Is the antenna aimed correctly?

Power cycle the PiFi by unplugging the power source to the POE for 20 seconds, then plug it back in and wait 1 minute for the boot up to complete. If that doesn’t work, contact support.
