when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 192.168.0.240. once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.

when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is 192.168.0.1 the range extender IP address has to change from 192.168.1.240 to 19.168.0.240. Hope that helps.

The actual max distance of the range expander is about 50 feet, and sorry to say but it cannot bounce the wireless signal from it on a wall....

Link Light red activity light blue. Tried to reset and use the auto configuration button but nothing is working.


Hello, It sounds like the repeater is not within range of the wireless router or access point. The repeater does not act as a wireless router by itself, but rather like extra antenna/signal booster, so you still need to have a wireless router within range. The router must also be using a router that is 802.11B/G compatible, or else the repeater might not be able to receive that frequency signal in order to boost it (should work with N also, but not quite sure if it has to be set to Standard Channel due to how N works. We are working on wireless frequencies in my course now, so I can contact my instructor, and get back to on that). If you have any questions, feel free to contact me, or simply reply.

Loose connection with router


There must be something that has been introduced to your area that is causing distortion in your WiFi signal. 802.11 or WiFi is very susceptible to noise or signal distortion and can come from many things from interfering objects to other wireless signals such as Wireless phones. There are also many other things that can cause signal distortion I would look to see if you have added anything new around the time the unit lost signal. If your unit is working properly when you are closer to the router than this has to be the problem. Range is a big iffy factor when messing with WiFi.

No Power


Before you plug it in the wall, insert the installation disc and go through their tutorial. When you do that you'll plug in your range expander, press the auto configuration button on the side and wait for both lights to turn up blue. Then you can unplug the range expander and put it else where.
