• GHz - indicates the radio band of available wireless networks.
• Signal - displays the relative position of the available networks within range by indicating the power of the wireless signal received.
QUICK TIP:  If a signal with no green bar is displayed, the Linksys RE7000 is located too far from the router.  For optimum performance, place your Linksys RE7000 near the router to keep the signal strength between 60% and 100%.
• Security - displays the security type used by available networks.  If a network supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS), the WPS User-added image icon is also displayed.
