Positioning Your Extender
The ideal location to place the extender is half-way between your wireless router and your computer.
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 Wireless Device to Extender LED is green, the extender is working as expected.
To improve the Link Rate LED from red or amber to green:
• Once you successfully connect to the extender from a computer that is outside the range of your router and log in to www.mywifiext.net
, the Smart Wizard guides you through the process to connect the extender to a router.
• If the Link Rate LED is red or the Smart Wizard cannot connect the extender to a router, move the extender closer to the router or to a different spot where it provides a better line of sight. As you move the extender, continue to check the Link Rate and the Wireless Device to Extender LEDs on the front panel until you find a location where the Link Rate LED is green or amber, and the Wireless Device to Extender LED is green. Note that you might have to unplug the extender as you move it to a different location. If you do, from the new location, power up the extender and continue to check the LEDs.
Once the LEDs show that the extender is in a good location, open a browser and go to http://www.mywifiext.net
to continue the setup proces.
