  • Before we configure RE200, please check the hardware connection:
    Plug your RE200 into a power outlet near your wireless router or AP.
    Use an Ethernet cable to connect your RE200 to your PC. If Ethernet connection is not available, please connect the Tplink extender wireless network (default network name is TP-LINK_Extender xxxxxx, no password required) via your PC/pad/phone.

    Now let’s begin configuring RE200:

    1. Log into the Web GUI of RE200 using its default IP: or its domain name: tplinkextender.net or tplinkrepeater.net.

    Follow the Quick Setup, and click “Next” to continue.
    2. Select your Region here, and then click “Next”.
    3. Now your RE200 will scan all the wireless networks around. Since RE200 is a dual band Ranger Extender, it’ll scan and configure Wi-Fi 2.4G first, then scan and configure Wi-Fi 5G.
    Then please choose the wireless network you want to extend, click “Next”.
    4. Now input the password of the wireless network you want to extend, and click “Next”.
    5. Now we can configure Wi-Fi 5G, it’s the same step as 2.4G.

    6. Here we can review all the settings we made just now, click “Finish” if it’s ok.
    7. Now RE200 will reboot itself to make all settings take effect.
    After the reboot, we need to check whether the settings take effect, which is to check whether your RE200 has successfully been connected to your main Router/AP and can go to Internet successfully. There are two methods:

    Connect your PC to your Ranger Extender (RE200/RE210) via an Ethernet cable, and check whether your PC can go to Internet successfully.
    Check the wireless signal LED light of your Ranger Extender (shown as the pictures below). If the 2.4G and 5G wireless signal LED are on, it means your Ranger Extender has been successfully connected to the main Router!
    8. Then you can put RE200/RE210 in a proper place where you want to extend the wireless network’s coverage, and enjoy the extended wireless network.

  • To connect the TP-Link extender with WPS Button.
    For this process you need to first press the WPS button on the router for 3 seconds and within a minute you have to press the WPS button on the extender for 3 seconds.
    For this your extender should be plugged close to the router to do this Quickly.
    Then make sure that the WPS Led is blinking on both router and the extender.
    Wait for 2 minutes it will connect automatically.If it dosen’t you may have to repeat the steps again.
    When it is connected it will show you the WIFI Led’s On.It does not matter what colour it is if the light is On which means its connected.
    So now you can use it in any place.
