Q: What does the AyrMesh Hub do?
— Asked on October 17, 2016
A: The Ayrstone AyrMesh Hub is the building block of your AyrMesh Network. Mounted at a high elevation outside, each compact, rugged AyrMesh Hub can cast its powerful signal to a laptop or other WiFi device up to half a mile away. Additional AyrMesh Hubs, requiring only an electrical connection, can extend your network even further. With clear line-of-sight, AyrMesh hubs can be placed up to 2.5 miles apart, although we recommend putting them 1 mile apart to maintain continuous coverage.
Q: What do I need to get started?
— Asked on October 17, 2016
A: Most people start with a single AyrMesh Hub or with an AyrMesh Hub and an AyrMesh Receiver (to bring the network into a building). From there you can add more AyrMesh Hubs to extend your network further, more Receivers for additional buildings or to add non-WiFi devices, AyrMesh IndoorAPs to provide WiFi inside your buildings, and AyrMesh Switches to connect additional Ethernet devices to the network. Remember that, with Ayrstone's 90-day money-back guarantee, there is no penalty for trying Ayrstone products.
Q: What is the difference between the AyrMesh Gateway Hub and the AyrMesh Remote Hub?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: There is no actual difference – the Hubs configure themselves according to the role in which they find themselves. If they can “see” the Internet on their Ethernet ports, they configure themselves as Gateways; if not, they configure themselves as Remotes. You can switch the physical Hubs between Remote and Gateway locations and they’ll just reboot themselves to their new role.

Q: How does the AyrMesh Receiver work?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The AyrMesh Receiver combines a powerful WiFi radio with an 8dB directional antenna. The user simply mounts the AyrMesh Receiver where it is in range of and pointed at the AyrMesh Hub. The AyrMesh Receiver’s power supply is plugged into the wall, and an Ethernet device can be plugged into the AyrMesh Receiver’s LAN port.

Q: Can the AyrMesh Receiver be used without an AyrMesh Hub?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: Yes, but the real advantage comes with using it with the AyrMesh Hub. When used with the AyrMesh Hub, then you only have to go to one place (AyrMesh.com) to manage your entire network. For instance, if you change your SSID or encryption passkey, the changes are automatically sent to all the devices on your network, and they reset themselves automatically. However, the Receiver is simply a WiFi client device, so it will connect with any device that has the SSID and encryption passkey it has been configured to use.

Q: What’s the difference between the Cab Hub and the normal Hub?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The difference is that the Cab Hub is a normal Hub that also comes with our specialized power cord and magnetic antenna. These allow the Cab Hub to be mounted in a tractor, sprayer, combine, or truck cab.

Q: What is the purpose of the AyrMesh Bridge?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The Bridge was originally developed for AyrMesh users who wanted to put their Gateway Hubs in a more advantageous position than on top of the house (e.g. on top of a grain leg or on a building on a nearby hill). However, it can be used as a “wireless Ethernet cable” to provide network connectivity anywhere.

Q: How does the Bridge work?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The bridge simply transmits data from each of the Bridge radios to the other. One Bridge radio is connected to your network – it may be your router, a Remote Hub, a Receiver, or even the end of another Bridge – and the other is connected to a device you want connected to your network – a computer, IP camera, etc. The radios transmit a signal in the 5 GHz. band. The radio signal they use, however, is a special narrow-band signal that is invisible to 5 GHz. WiFi. It can interfere with (and be interfered with) by 5 GHz. WiFi signals, but it is invisible to normal WiFi adapters and equipment.

Q: What’s the difference between the Bridge, the Hub, and the Receiver?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The Bridge works just like two Hubs or a Hub and Receiver, except the Bridge does not provide a WiFi signal for laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. to connect to, and the Bridge can cover more distance than the WiFi devices. Hubs can be up to 2.5 miles apart, the Receiver can be up to 2 miles from the Hub, and the Bridge radios can be as much as 5 miles apart.

Q: What is the purpose of the AyrMesh IndoorAP?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The IndoorAP was created primarily for folks with outbuildings (especially metal outbuildings) that the outdoor WiFi will not penetrate adequately. It is designed to simply and quickly provide indoor WiFi to any location served by the AyrMesh network. It snaps on to the power supply of an AyrMesh Hub2n, Receiver, or Bridge radio. Note that its WiFi SSID will be different from the Hub’s.

Q: What is the purpose of the AyrMesh Switch?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: The switch is just a way to turn one Ethernet port into 7 – an “outlet strip” for Ethernet ports. It allows you to add more Ethernet ports wherever you need them in your network – it can be attached to your router, a Remote Hub, Receiver, Remote Bridge radio, or IndoorAP.

Q: Does the Switch check in to AyrMesh.com?
— Asked on October 18, 2016
A: No, it’s just a local device.

Q: What does the Solar and Battery Power System do?
— Asked on March 13, 2018
A: The Solar and Battery Power System can be used to power an individual AyrMesh device. It is made by Tycon Systems, and we use their model RPPL2424-18-30. The way it works is that it contains batteries, a small charge controller and PoE injector box, and a solar panel. The panel charges the batteries, and they provide power to the AyrMesh device via the PoE injector. In our tests, an individual device can run several days without sun on the solar panel. If you want to run several devices (e.g. an AyrMesh Bridge and an AyrMesh Hub), you may want to get a larger model from Tycon. Contact Ayrstone Support and we'll help you configure your system.
