In this article, we'll show how to quickly set up your Mercku M2 Hive.
- Set up your M2 router and connect to the Internet. Please refer to this article: How do I set up the M2 Queen as a router?
- Plug in the M2 (Queen).
- Connect one end of the provided ethernet cable to the M2's WAN port and the other end to the LAN port of your modem. After you connect the ethernet cable, a blue light underneath the M2 (Queen) on the WAN port side will light up, confirming a successful connection.
Connect to the Open Mercku network: Mercku-XXXX
- Place the Bees in suitable locations and power them on, then wait for the mesh nodes to connect automatically. Each Bee indicator light will be green once the network is connected.
- Enjoy a faster, more stable WiFi ✌️
Please Note: If the indicator light of Bee is blinking in green, this indicates its position is not suitable. Move the Bee to another location to gain better performance. To ensure that the mesh network works properly, please place the router in an open location. The upper limit of distance between nodes is 2 rooms or 10 meters. Consult your typology map to visually confirm a strong connection after deployment.
