Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What does the green & red LED lights on the amplifier indicate?

A. The WRE2710-S is designed with green & red LED lights for visual technical diagnostics of the amplifier.

Green light: The amplifier is communicating; there are no issues.

Flickering green and red light: The WRE2710-S is designed with patented automatic gain and oscillation control. When the LED lights are flickering green and red, the amplifier is automatically adjusting the gain and output power to compensate for the current signal strength environment.

Solid red light: The amplifier has detected some sort of fault or has gone into stand-by mode (passive bypass). The WRE2710-S is designed with patented passive bypass technology. This fail-safe feature allows a signal to pass through the amplifier to the connected system, even if the amplifier faults, loses power, or goes into stand-by mode (signal enhancement is not needed).

 

Q. Does the magnetic mount antenna supplied with the WRE2710-S Kit require a ground plane?

A. Yes. The magnetic mount 2dBi antenna needs to be installed on a flat metal ground plane (4”x4”) for reliable cellular and data communications.

 

Q. Can the WRE2710-S be used to broadcast cell signals into a building or to a cell phone?

A. No. The WRE2710-S is designed specifically to connect directly to any fixed or mobile cellular-based application or M2M-enabled cellular router, modem, module, or gateway.
