The two devices will begin auto-pairing. Look at the LED next to the house icon. It should be blinking green on both devices once powered up. During auto-pairing, the G.hn light should blink slowly in amber. Do not unplug either device during this process.
Once the two units are paired, if you have one of our newer modems and it’s connected both to the internet and to the bridge via Ethernet cable, then the access point will automatically clone, or create a copy of, your WiFi network. This means that you can connect to your extender using your same WiFi network name (SSID) and password (security key). Easy!
The initial pairing and cloning process will take about 4 minutes. Once it’s complete, the G.hn home light will turn solid green on both devices.
If for any reason auto-pairing is unsuccessful, the G.hn home light will turn off. If this happens, you’ll need to reset the devices before trying pairing again.

||Green: Devices are paired
Amber (blinking): In active pairing mode
Off: Not paired
Once the two devices are paired, they will stay linked even if power is lost, which gives you one less thing to worry about if there’s an outage, or if one of the devices accidentally gets unplugged.
