Tip: If you have to use a different location, move the Extender closer to the device, but still within the wireless range of the router.

Always check the color of Link Rate symbol on the extender to gauge the connection of the wireless router and the extender. Green is best, Amber is good, while Red is poor.



The best connection is established when there is a clear line of sight between the Extender and the wireless router and also a clear line of sight between the Extender and the computer you are using. If this straight path is blocked by a thick wall or other materials, move the Extender to a different location half-way between the computer and the router. 



 



If there is no power outlet nearby, or you prefer to place the Extender elsewhere, move the Extender closer to the computer. If the Link Rate LED is green or amber and the PC to Extender Connection LED is green, the Extender is working as expected.



The extender relies on your wireless router or access point for an internet connection. The extender loses internet access if:




  • The wireless router or access point loses internet connection.


  • The wireless settings on the wireless router or access point are changed.


  • The Wi-Fi signal of the wireless router or access point fails to reach the extender.


  • The extender is out of range of the wireless router or access point.
