Reset Button: To reset to factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button for more than five seconds while the unit is already powered on.

 

Remote Display: Displays the received signal strength in dBm of the remote airFiber radio.

 

Local Display: Displays the received signal strength in dBm of the local airFiber radio. 

 

Management Port: 10/100 Mbps, secured port for configuration. By default, this is the only port that can monitor, configure, and/or update firmware. 

 

Aux Port: Port for audio tone aiming.

 

Data Port: 10/100/1000 Mbps port handles all user traffic.
