Keep track of the LED lights of your device
If you have any problems with your device, the first thing to check are the LED lights:
|Off||The Multy Device is not receiving power.|
|White||Blinking||The Multy Device is booting up.|
|On||The Multy Device power is on|
|Blue||Blinking||The Multy Device Bluetooth is being configured|
|On||The Multy Device Bluetooth is ready.|
|Pink/Blue||Rotate||The Multy Device is ready for use. Rotate here means the pink light will move around|
|the LED indicator while the blue light is stationary.|
|Amber||Blinking||The Multy Device is undergoing firmware upgrade|
|Fast blinking||The Multy Device is being reset.|
|Red||On||The Multy Device in root AP mode failed to connect to the Internet or the Multy|
|Device in extender mode cannot connect to the root AP|
Let's say that you have Multy 1 -> Multy 2 -> Multy 3 connected in a row like this:
Then if Multy B (number 2) is red, the probability is that the Multy C (number 3) will also be red, or have a weak signal at least.
Firmware- and Application-update
To see your firmware version as well as getting making sure you have the newest version - you can first enable it by Menu -> Settings -> Notifications -> Enable New Firmware Notifications
If the notification was set to "off", then check your firmware version here:
You can find the newest firmware version here:
Also, go into the App store or Play store and go search for the Multy app to make sure you have the newest application version.
Check your connection speed
If you have any problems with the connection speed, the Multy might not be placed in an optimal location. You can test your WiFi speed through Menu -> Diagnose -> Test
*Speed test of your internet and between devices on your Multy chain
If you have a low speed either between your Multy devices "Living room" and "Study room", in this example, or from the internet to the Multy device - then you want to adjust the placement of the devices. You want the devices to be out and seen by everyone.
Check the placement of your Multy Devices
You can also check the Multy's chain connection by the WiFi Backhaul function that test the placement of your Multy devices - if they are too close, the signals could interfere with each other, making your WiFi slow and unreliable and if they are too far away, they cannot communicate with each other properly.
* WiFi Backhaul - the Multy devices can sense how they are placed relative to the optimal state.
Check your WiFi signal from the phone to the Multy
* WiFi Signal - tests your device's signal strength to the Multy device
If you have any problems with installing a second Multy U
Try to exchange the "router node" Multy U with the "extender node" Multy U and vice versa. So the extender becomes the main router and the main router becomes the extender. In that way, you can determine if what device is faulty.
