Panoramic Wifi Pod FAQs
Panoramic Wifi Pods are devices that can be paired with a compatible Panoramic Wifi Gateway to create a mesh Wifi network in your home. These "mesh network" extenders plug in to an outlet to help broaden your in-home Wifi coverage. With a set of Pods you can reduce or eliminate in-home dead zones so you have consistently fast Wifi coverage throughout the house.
A mesh network is a group of devices set up to share internet using wireless-to-wireless connectivity over different frequencies. The Panoramic Wifi Gateway and Panoramic Wifi Pods work together to form a mesh network.
You'll need Pods if you have areas in your home with poor Wifi performance. Pods help extend the range of Wifi coverage in your home to hard-to-reach areas, or areas with poor Wifi signal strength due to structural interference, large metal objects, or distance from your Gateway.
No, Panoramic Wifi Pods are optional. The need for Pods depends on the construction of your home and placement of the Panoramic Wifi Gateway. If the gateway is at one end of the home, you might find Pods help make Wifi coverage more consistent and reduce or eliminate dead zones.
Pods are easy to install. Simply plug your Pods into an electrical outlet and activate them using the instructions on the Panoramic Wifi app. You’ll hold your phone or tablet a few inches from the Pod to activate it on your network.
In the rare case that a Panoramic Wifi Gateway needs help to cover a home, a group of Pods is most effective in filling in the gaps. Pods use a mesh network, so multiple pods, each placed 20-30 feet from each other, help spread the coverage and reduce or eliminate dead zones in the house.
The first Pod should be installed 20 to 30 feet from the Panoramic Wifi Gateway. The second and third Pods should be placed 20 to 30 feet away from the first Pod. To get the best connection, ensure there are no metal objects in between the Pods. Avoid placing Pods near mirrors, bathrooms and large appliances.
Yes, Pods come with a 30-day money back guarantee and a one-year hardware warranty for exchange. Pods must be returned in their original packaging.
No. Pods are meant for indoor use only and should not be placed outside of your home.
There are many models of Wifi extenders, so it's difficult to compare to them all. Some "extenders" just amplify a weak signal, slowing the whole network down. Pods use multiple frequencies in a “mesh” configuration to avoid total network slowdowns.
No, Panoramic Wifi Pods are part of the complete Panoramic Wifi system and are not designed to be used with other modems.
No, once your Pods are connected, any device connected to your network will discover the Pods on its own. After a few days, the Panoramic Wifi system will optimize your devices, ensuring they are connected in a way to provide the best Wifi performance.
You can check the status of your Pods in your Panoramic Wifi app or through the web tool.
