Set up and wire a pre-configured Wi-Fi bridgeUpdated a year ago

Purpose of this Guide

This guide shows you how to set up your Comfast bridge, if it has been pre-configured by us.

Even if they don't seem to work, do not press the reset button on the bridges as this will erase all of the settings and will mean the bridges have to be set back up. If you do this and need us to set the bridges back up for you we will need to book you in for an Engineer Support session. If you want to set it up yourself, please follow the relevant guide below:



Before You Begin

Please unpack your bridges, cables and power supplies ready and get your computer up and running preferably in the same room as your router.

There will be some small differences depending on the specific equipment you have but the basic idea of a bridge system is (starting from the camera):

  1. Camera sends data to the 'secondary site' Wi-Fi bridge (via the PoE injector)
  2. 'Secondary site' Wi-Fi bridge sends data to the 'Home' Wi-Fi bridge (via wireless connection)
  3. 'Home' Wi-Fi bridge sends data to the internet router (via the PoE injector)
  4. Internet router sends data to computers/phones/tablets via local connection or internet

Let's Get Started

Now, watch the following video guide which will walk you through how to wire up and set up your Comfast bridges.
