Windows - Determining Signal Strength

From the main screen of VZAccess Manager, locate the signal strength indicator located to the right of the available network(s).
Note If the device is experiencing low or no signal strength, ensure the antenna is fully extended and perpendicular to the computer. If signal strength does not improve, move the device to a location where it receives a stronger signal.

Windows - Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI)

  1. From the top menu of VZAccess Manager, click Help > About VZAccess Manager.
  2. Verify the RSSI.
    Note For a reliable connection, the RSSI should be greater than -95 dBm (e.g. -73 dBm). A value of -125 dBm indicates no signal. If the signal is between -95 dBm and -125 dBm, move the device to an alternate location (an outdoor location is preferable).
