Section 3: External GPS Antenna
If your Verizon Wireless Network Extender cannot receive a
Global Positioning System (GPS) signal, it may be necessary to
improve the reception by installing and then positioning the
external GPS antenna. This section outlines the installation and
relocation of this GPS antenna.
Antenna Installation
In some cases, you may find that because of its current location,
the base station’s GPS antenna may not be able to properly
receive an active GPS signal. If a stable GPS signal is not
detected, as indicated by the red GPS LED, you will need to install
the GPS antenna cable as explained in this section.
Without a valid GPS signal, the base station cannot function
properly, and calls will be redirected to the nearest compatible
cell tower.
Warning!: Use only the GPS antenna supplied with your Verizon Wireless
Network Extender.
13
When positioning the GPS antenna, ensure that it is:
• Installed in a horizontal position.
• Adjacent to a window and in an open area. This ensures clear
reception of the GPS signal.
Note: GPS signal strength is greatly reduced when passing through walls or
other hard surfaces.
To connect the GPS antenna to the Network Extender base
station, follow these steps:
1.
Turn off the base station.
2.
Rotate the antenna down to provide access to the GPS
antenna’s protective cover.
Note: The GPS antenna receives signals from Global Positioning System
satellites and uses them to obtain time and location information.

Section 4: Troubleshooting
Now that you’ve been given an overview of the Verizon Wireless
Network Extender base station, some situations might arise
where you’ll need additional usage or connection help. This
section provides some base station troubleshooting tips and
techniques.
For more information, please visit us online at
www.verizonwireless.com/support.
• My Power LED is not Illuminating.
– Make sure that one end of the power cord is securely connected to an
active outlet and that the other end is properly connected to the power
supply.
– Make sure the power connector is securely inserted into the rear DC
12V port on the back of the base station.
• My GPS LED is not illuminating blue even after a few minutes.
– If the preceding fails, remove the power cord from the wall outlet for at
least 10 seconds.
– Reconnect the power connector to the DC 12V port and plug the power
cord into the wall outlet. This allows the base station to re-initiate its
startup sequence where it detects the Ethernet connection, GPS signal,
and communication with the Verizon Wireless network.
– If relocation does not produce a GPS signal, uninstall the GPS antenna
from the base station and relocate it to receive a stronger signal.
• My WAN LED is blue but I cannot place a call via my Verizon
Wireless Network Extender.
– Check that the router is communicating properly with your ISP. The
Internet activity LED on your router should be blinking. For further
router troubleshooting tips, please review the router manufacturer's
printed or online documentation.
Note: The first time the base station is used after installation or after
relocation, it can take up to one hour to acquire a GPS connection.
– The GPS antenna cannot obtain a signal.
– If possible, move the base station to a location with fewer surrounding
obstructions. The new location should be in an open area and closer to
a window, if possible.
Troubleshooting
16
Verizon - WSE.book Page 17 Monday, November 17, 2008 4:48 PM
• My System LED is solid red.
– A red System LED indicates a system error was detected and is
symptomatic of a communication problem with the Verizon Wireless
network.
– Confirm your base station was activated at time of purchase. If your
base station has not already been activated, call Verizon Wireless
Customer Service at (800) 922-0204 or *611 from your Verizon
Wireless mobile phone and select the option for technical support.
– Before contacting the Verizon Wireless Customer Service Center,
confirm the following:
• Is your WAN LED illuminating blue?
– If it is not, then there may be a communication problem between your
base station and the router.
– If the WAN LED is illuminating blue, then check that the router is
communicating properly with your ISP. The Internet activity LED on your
router should be blinking. For further router troubleshooting tips, please
review either the router manufacturer's printed or online documentation.
• Is the GPS LED illuminating blue? If it is not, the base station might
not be receiving a GPS signal. Inability to receive a GPS signal can
result in the base station failing to validate your account information
and network timing, which then prevents usage and reroutes you
back to the nearest compatible cell tower. If this is the problem,
install the external GPS antenna. See “External GPS Antenna” on
page 13.
17
• The Network Extender base station seems to be getting too hot.
– Make sure there is nothing blocking the heat vents located along the
side of the base station.
– It is recommended that the Network Extender be located in a wellventilated open area at least 12 inches from any surrounding hot
surfaces. It is not recommended that the base station be installed in a
cabinet or other enclosed location.
• How can I manage access to my base station?
– You have the option to manage priority access settings for your
Network Extender to specified numbers by logging into My Verizon at
www.verizonwireless.com. A maximum of 50 authorized Verizon
Wireless callers can be registered.
– When the base station is set to open access, the first three callers
detected within the base station’s area are given access to place or
receive calls through the base station. Your Verizon Wireless Network
Extender is set to open access by default.
– Anyone else who then initiates a call while all base station channels are
occupied is redirected to the nearest compatible cell tower when
available.
– When unauthorized callers (callers not on your managed access list)
within range of the base station attempt to place a call, they are
automatically redirected to the nearest compatible cell tower.
– If a handoff to the nearest compatible cell tower is not possible and all
channels are not in use, one channel may be available for an
Verizon - WSE.book Page 18 Monday, November 17, 2008 4:48 PM
unauthorized user to access. Callers on the managed access list are
always given priority access to the Network Extender.
Note: Both authorized and unauthorized callers may see more service bars
on their Verizon Wireless handset due to their proximity to the Verizon
Wireless Network Extender.
Note: A fourth channel is always reserved for emergency (E911) calls to any
user within range of the Network Extender.

There are several simple guidelines to operating your base
station properly and maintaining safe, satisfactory service.
• Avoid exposing your base station to rain or liquid spills. If your base
station does get wet, immediately turn the power off and remove the
power connector.
• Do not operate the base station in an extremely dusty or humid
environment.
• Avoid placing the base station near radiators or other heating sources.
• Do not obstruct the heat vents by blocking the openings or covering
the base station, and do not operate it in a confined space.
• Avoid locating the base station where it could be exposed to direct
sunlight for prolonged periods.
• Do not connect the base station to a power strip containing an
excessive number of other devices. Refer to the documentation that
came with your power strip for capacity information.
• Do not disassemble the wireless antenna.
19
• Do not attempt to open the base station or power supply, or dissemble
either component, or remove the wireless antenna. You run the risk of
electrical shock and/or burn and voiding the limited warranty. No userserviceable parts are located within the base station enclosure.
• If the base station will not be used for a prolonged period, remove the
power cord from the AC outlet.
• Although your base station is quite sturdy, it is a complex piece of
equipment and can be broken. Avoid dropping, hitting, bending, or
sitting on it.
• Any changes or modifications to your base station not expressly
approved in this document could void your warranty for this equipment
and void your authority to operate this equipment.
Warning!: You may not be able to make 911 calls in the event of an electrical
power outage, broadband connection failure, or other service
disruption. 911 services may be limited in areas outside of the
Verizon Wireless network. Not all public safety answering points
have location-based E911 technology. Always be prepared to
report your location to the 911 operator when placing an
emergency call. Mobile phones operate using radio signals which
cannot guarantee connection in all conditions.

Using Your Base Station Near Other Electronic
Devices
Most modern electronic equipment is shielded from radio
frequency (RF) signals. However, RF signals from your base
station may affect inadequately shielded electronic equipment.
Conversely, ensure the unit is placed at least 2 feet away from
products which generate electromagnetic radiation, such as a
computer monitor or microwave oven.
Note: For the best care of your base station, ensure that only authorized
personnel service your device. Failure to do so may be dangerous and
void your warranty. Consult the manufacturer of any personal medical
devices, such as pacemakers and hearing aids, to determine if they
are adequately shielded from external RF signals.
Radio Frequency (RF) Energy
Understanding How Your Base Station Operates
Your base station functions as a radio transmitter and receiver.
When it is turned on, it receives and transmits radio frequency
(RF) signals. When you use your base station, the system
handling your call controls the power level. This power can range
from 1 microwatt to 50 milliwatts.
Knowing Radio Frequency Safety
The design of your base station complies with updated NCRP
standards described below:
In 1991–92, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers
(IEEE) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) joined
in updating ANSI’s 1982 standard for safety levels with respect to
human exposure to RF signals. More than 120 scientists,
engineers and physicians from universities, government health
agencies and industries developed this updated standard after
reviewing the available body of research.
In 1993, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) adopted
this updated standard in a regulation. In August 1996, the FCC
adopted a hybrid standard consisting of the existing ANSI/IEEE
standard and the guidelines published by the National Council of
Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP).
For more information about RF exposure, visit the FCC Web site
at www.fcc.gov.
