In this article, we'll show how to quickly set up your Mercku M2 Swarm.
Mercku Swarm consists of 3 separate Mercku M2 Queens that can be meshed together for ultimate Wi-Fi coverage. The Mercku Swarm is pre-meshed for you - this means that your routers will connect to each other automatically - no setup needed!
You will just need to quickly set up your network name (SSID) and password and enjoy your new WiFi.
Follow these steps to set up your Gateway (Main) Router:
- 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?
