What does the LED light on my pod mean?

When initially plugging in any pod, the light should always turn solid for a moment, and then the LED will slowly pulse while it is trying to connect to the cloud. Once connected, the LED will then turn off. If there is no light at all when first plugging in the pod, check your outlet to ensure it has power. If the outlet is okay there may be something wrong with the pod.

Green Blinking LED – This could mean the following:

Quick, repeating Double blinks – Pod is waiting for optimization to finish: You will also see “Optimizing your network” message in the app as well. Optimizations usually take a 2-3 minutes, depending on how many pods are connected. Optimizations can be triggered by a change in your environment such as high levels of interference, but will also happen overnight and immediately after initial setup.

Quick Double blinks – Pod is being named: If you are in the process of naming this pod by scanning the pod.

Green slow continuous pulse/breathing (dim to bright) – Pod is trying to connect with the cloud and depending on the circumstances could mean the following:

This is normal before adding the pod to your account, the slow pulse will continue until the pod is added to the account and establishes a connection to the cloud.

The pod has lost connection to the rest of your network, which could be a result of extremely poor signal to other pods, especially if the other pods are still online and you have not received a lost internet connectivity notification.

Internet connectivity is lost. This is will be followed by a “Network is offline” notification. Try the app Self-Help tool to see if that fixes the problem.

If you can’t see all the pods being claimed in your Plume® App and if you see a slow LED pulsing on the pod at the same time, contact Conway Corp support for assistance.

Red rapid continuous blinking – There may be an issue with the onboard software. Contact Conway Corp support for assistance.

Red slow continuous blinking – Possible fan failure. Contact Conway Corp support for assistance.

 

What is the maximum WiFi speed of a SuperPod?

For real-world single device maximum speeds on a SuperPod one hop away from the gateway pod, you can expect up to 400-450 Mbps. Maximum device WiFi speed is dependent on several factors such as:

  • Internet connection speed
  • Overall network traffic
  • Number and type of hops to the gateway pod
  • Type of network application
  • Environmental radio interference and signal strength of the connections
  • WiFi capabilities of the connected device
