Repeater installation

A successful registration results in the blue LED on the repeater flashing three times, then the LED turns solid to indicate that the repeater has connected to the base station. A failed registration, which can occur if the repeater cannot find a base station to register with, results in 10 fast flashes of the blue LED before the repeater returns to its original state. The blue LED flashes slowly to indicate that the repeater is registered and is searching for the base station, or that the repeater is in the process of connecting to the base station.

You do not need to de-register repeaters. The base station only keeps track of repeaters that register to the base station. The base station overwrites repeater registration parameters each time a repeater registers.


When a base station reboots, the base station determines the repeater topology. If you move repeaters, you should reboot the base station so that it can adjust to the change in topology. When you reboot a base station, all linked repeaters enter a searching mode and choose the most appropriate master unit.

When a repeater is not registered, the repeater LED blinks once when the power is connected and then stays off. To register a repeater to a base station, see Repeater registration.
