â¢ Using two screws or other fasteners, ensure that the Access Point is securely set on the wall. When fastening the Access Point to a wall with screws, retighten them after mounting the Access Point. â¢ Select a location that will hold the weight of the Access Point when mounting it on the wall. If the location cannot hold the weight of the Access Point, the Access Point may drop and cause an accident. â¢ When mounting the Access Point on walls made of plasterboard or other fragile material, make sure that the material is strong enough to support the unitâs weight and use special screw fasteners or other fixtures that are made for use with that material. If the unit is fastened with ordinary screws, there is a danger that it may fall. â¢ When mounting the Access Point on the wall, be careful not to drop the Access Point or the tools used for doing the work. Dropping the unit or tools could result in unforeseeable accidents.
Use the CD-ROM provided to install the utility software that searches for the Access Point.
