The Wireless Transmitter is used to send signals to wireless network items in Refined Storage.


The default range is 16 blocks, but can be upgraded with range upgrades.

Bigger range

Keep in mind, you are not limited to 1 Wireless Transmitter!

You can spread multiple around in your world, each maximally upgraded with range upgrades.

Note that every Wireless Transmitter needs to be connected to the network through a Cable or Network Receiver.

Placing transmitters efficiently

Placing 2 Wireless Transmitters just next to each other will not do that much.

The wireless signal starts from the Wireless Transmitter’s position, so, if you place 2 transmitters next to each other you’ll only have a net gain of 1 block.

Instead, you have to spread your wireless transmitters around.


You can recolor the Wireless Transmitter in 2 ways:

  • Using a dye on the Wireless Transmitter

  • Combining the block with a dye as a crafting recipe
