How to setup your RAB

Setting up your Remote Access Bridge (RAB) is easy and just takes a minute or two


Important notes:

The RAB acts as a node on the network.  What this means is that you must connect to it through another Avi-on device when using your mobile phone to set up the wifi.  To make sure this works do this first:

  • Plug in the RAB within 40 feet but not closer than 5 feet of the Wifi Router you want to connect it to
  • Make sure there is an Avi-on device with 60 feet of the RAB
  • When setting up the RAB wifi with your phone, stand near the closest Avi-on Device to the RAB, not the RAB itself
  • It may take up to 3 minutes for the RAB to be visible to your network after it is plugged in
  • You will need Avi-on app version 1.5.0 or later to use the RAB

Sometimes it may help to move an Avi-on device closer to the RAB and the RAB close to the wifi router for setup


 Plug in your RAB.  You should see the Green (wifi) and Blue (Bluetooth) lights flashing at first

Add the RAB just like any other device.  Once plugged in, open the Avi-on app, and press the + button.  You should see the Avi-on RAB pop up.

Select it and hit Done. This will add the RAB to your account

After the RAB is added the Blue LED should turn solid on after a minute or so

Press the button at the bottom of the RAB settings page to set up your wifi connection

First the Phone connects to the RAB

Then it returns a list of the available wifi connections

Pick the one you want and hit Next

Then enter the password

The Green LED should glow solid as well after the connection


You can always go back to the wifi setup section to change or update the same way.  Instructions:  HERE
