In case IP connection is not available, the Winbox tool (https://mt.lv/winbox) can be used to connect to the MAC address of the device from the LAN side (all access is blocked from the Internet port by default).
For recovery purposes, it is possible to boot the device for reinstallation, see section Buttons and Jumpers.

Expansion slots and ports

  • Two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
  • Integrated Wireless 2.4 GHz 802.11b/g/n, antenna gain 3.5 dBi.
  • Integrated Wireless 5.0 GHz 802.11a/n/ac, antenna gain 4.5 dBi. 5180 – 5320 MHz.
  • Integrated Wireless 5.0 GHz 802.11a/n/ac, antenna gain 4.5 dBi. 5500 – 5825 MHz.

Buttons and Jumpers

The reset button functions as described below:

  • Hold this button before applying power, release after three seconds since powering, to load backup Boot loader. This might be necessary if the device is not operating because of a failed RouterBOOT upgrade. When you have started the device with the backup loader, you can either set RouterOS to force backup loader in the RouterBOARD settings or have a chance to reinstall the failed RouterBOOT from an fwf file (total 3 seconds).
  • If you keep holding this button for 2 more seconds until the green LED light starts flashing, release the button to reset RouterOS configuration to default (total 5 seconds).
  • To connect this device to a wireless network managed by CAPsMAN, keep holding the button for 5 more seconds, LED turns solid green, release now to turn on CAPs mode (total 10 seconds).
  • Or Keep holding the button for 5 more seconds until the green LED turns off, then release it to make the RouterBOARD look for Netinstall servers. You can also simply keep the button pressed until the device shows up in the Netinstall program on Windows (total 15 seconds).

Regardless of the above option used, the system will load the backup RouterBOOT loader if the button is pressed before power is applied to the device. Useful for RouterBOOT debugging and recovery.

WPS Sync button

Use the WPS Sync button to expand your wireless repeater network coverage by adding multiple Audience devices to it.

  • On the chosen Audience AP, push the "WPS-Sync" button once, to turn on WPS mode for two minutes and make it wait for the Audience repeater. The status LED will blink green.
  • The Audience repeater needs to be booted with a pressed "WPS-Sync" button for the device to configure itself according to the "WPS-Sync" mode and to connect to the Audience AP. Release the "WPS-Sync" button when the status LED is blinking amber.
  • If the Audience repeater fails to connect to the Audience AP, then connecting can be repeated through RouterOS or by pressing the "WPS-Sync" button and releasing after 5 seconds, the device will turn on "WPS-Sync" mode for two minutes and search for Audience AP. Status LED will blink amber.
  • To add a third Audience repeater to your network, push the "WPS-Sync" button on the second Audience in your network, then boot the third unit with the "WPS-Sync" button pressed. Repeat with as many units as needed, adding more devices to your network.

Front status LED behavior

  • Solid blue – the device is powered on.
  • Blinking green – the device is in Access Point mode and waits for another Audience device to be connected.
  • Blinking amber (Red + Green) – the device searches and tries to connect to another Audience device.
  • Solid green – the device has established a connection in an Audience network.
  • Blinking Red – the device runs radar detection for Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS).
