Provide additional coverage and performance throughout the home using Network Extenders (Wi-Fi access points) without dead-spots or needing to reconnect to a different SSID.
EASE OF USE
Installed easily. Wi-Fi certified EasyMesh™ extenders are plug-and-play, quick and are self-configuring from the gateway. They connect to the gateway using Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
The home gateway automatically steers devices to the access point with the strongest signal or moves them between channels / band to avoid congestion.
Security and privacy are priority. While much of the security is hidden from the customer’s view, features such as controlled guest access and the ability to limit network access ensures secure connections.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do Extenders work together to create a MESH network?
The ARRIS EasyMesh system automatically connects your devices to the Router(s) or Extender(s) with the clearest nearby signal. As you move around in your home, your device can seamlessly switch back and forth between Router(s) and Extender(s), giving you the strongest signal wherever you go.
How many Nodes do I need?
The number of devices you need depends on the size and layout of your home and whether your router/gateway is Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Easymesh. If your router / gateway supports Easymesh then it can be part of the mesh network and additional coverage can be provided by a single VAP4641 extender. For larger homes additional nodes may be added up to a maximum of 3. For most homes one or two extenders are sufficient.
If your router does not support Easymesh then an additional extender is used, connected to the router/gateway, so the minimum number of VAP4641s required is two and the maximum is four.
Does this device replace my router or home gateway?
No, you’ll still need a router or gateway. The VAP4641 simply extends the coverage of your Wi-Fi signal.
How do I connect my VA P4641?
Installation varies slightly depending on whether your home router / gateway is Easymesh enabled.
If it is, then installation is a simple matter of plugging in the power cable and pressing a button on the gateway and extender. The mesh point is automatically configured from the router / gateway.
For routers / gateways without Easymesh, then two VAP4641s are required. Plug one unit into the router / gateway with the supplied Ethernet cable then plug the supplied power cords into both VAP4641s.
The two units are paired by pressing a button on both devices.
How do I access and manage my Wi-Fi network?
You can access and manage your network using the ARRIS Wi-Fi Home App from the Google Play Store and Apple Store.
