Important Safety Instructions

Avoiding Fire, Shock, Electrical Damage

Keep your Mako Switch away from water or damp environments, including wet basements and around refrigeration units. Do not place containers of fluid on the Mako Switch, such as drinks, vases or cleaning products.

Use surge protectors to mitigate interference and damage from lightning storms.

Observe all warnings affixed to this Mako Switch or its power supply.

Do not attempt to open the Mako Switch. There are no user-serviceable parts. Repairs may only be performed by accredited service personnel.

Protect your credentials. Do not write your password down or give it to anyone else, not even to Mako Support personnel or sanctioned Managed Service Providers: they will never ask for your password. On rare occasions the Mako ID may be asked for. This is printed at the back of the Mako.

Connecting Your Mako

Please do not connect your Mako device to a power outlet until all other cables and antennas have been attached.

Your Mako 4600 device gets its configuration from the Mako Central Management System (CMS). Your Mako Networks reseller should have preconfigured a profile for your Mako device in the Mako CMS and should also have provided you with login credentials to access the Mako CMS to control and manage your Mako device.

The Mako CMS can be accessed by clicking the “Login” link at:

In the Mako CMS, you can verify that important settings are correct, such as your Wi-Fi and cellular configurations.

Connect a LAN port to your network switch. In smaller networks, the Mako device could connect directly to a single device, such as a PC.

Connecting your Mako Appliance to the Network


LAN (PoE) should be connected to your existing local network.
