How to setup Deco X50-PoE Mesh Wi-Fi System

The first thing that you need to do is download the Deco app for your smartphone from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Create a new TP-Link account or log in to your existing one if you already have one.

Once you are logged in, click on Let’s Begin and choose the Deco model that you own from the list. Next, you need to power up your Deco device either through a power adapter or via a PoE switch such as an ethernet cable.

Select the working mode for your device depending on how you wish to set it up either as a Wi-Fi Router or Access Point. Follow the instructions shown on the screen to connect and power your devices.

Turn off the cable modem and plug the ethernet cable into it. Connect the modem device using the ethernet cable to your Deco. Wait for the modem to power on and the internet lights to become stable.

Connect your Deco to the PoE switch and turn on all the devices on the network. In case you wish to add more devices then don’t turn on the PoE switch yet. Wait for the LED light to start blinking blue. A yellow light means that the device is booting up whereas a pulsing blue light means that it is ready to set up.

The Deco app will now scan for nearby devices and automatically connect to them if it finds one. Now you need to connect your smartphone to the Wi-Fi of the Deco device by heading into the Settings.

The light indicator on the Deco device will turn a solid blue once it establishes a connection. Set a name and location for your device so you can easily identify it in the future.

Next, you need to select the type of internet connection that you wish to set up and enter the required information. Enter the Network name and password as it will be used to connect your devices to the Wi-Fi network.

Now you can connect your phone or tablet to the Wi-Fi network by entering the correct password and credentials. The Deco device will now be online and indicated by a solid green light.

You can follow this process to add more Deco devices to your network and use the Deco app. Just place the Deco devices in a convenient location according to the layout of your house and connect them.

Power on the Deco device using the power adapter or PoE switch and then use the ethernet cable to add them to the main router. This Deco device will now automatically become a part of your network.

That’s it, now go ahead and follow this process to set up other Deco devices in your home!
