    Wi-Fi Settings: Advanced Settings
    It is recommended that only experts in Wi-Fi
    configuration adjust the advanced Wi-Fi settings for
    the Range Extender.
    These settings allow you to control the details of your
    Wi-Fi network configuration.
    Here are a few definitions on some settings.
    Fragment Threshold: The Default and Recommended
    the setting is at 2346, meaning the Range Extender will
    never fragment any frames that it sends to Wi-Fi users.
    RTS Threshold: Adjusts the size of RTS data packets.
    Lower values reduce throughput but allow the system to recover quicker from interference/collisions. Higher
    values provide the fastest throughput.
    Beacon Interval: Indicates the frequency interval of the beacon. A beacon is a packet broadcast by the Range
    Extender to sync the Wi-Fi network.
    ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
    Preamble Type: Defines the length of the Cyclic Redundancy Check for communication between the Range
    Extender and roaming Wi-Fi users.

    Note: Make sure you have already configured your System Clock in order for your schedule to work correctly.
    Time Zone Settings can be adjusted from the web menu under Management > Time Zone Settings.
    ————————————————————————————————————-
    Wi-Fi Settings: User Access Control
    User Access allows you to deny access or allow access
    to specific users connecting wirelessly to the Extended
    Network. Each networking device has a unique
    address called a MAC address (a 12 digit hex number).
    By inputting the MAC address into the field, you can
    define whether that device is allowed into your
    network or not allowed.
    ————————————————————————————————————–
    Wi-Fi Settings: Wi-Fi Coverage Controls
    Adjust the output power of the Range Extender to control the coverage distance of your Extended Wi-Fi
    Network. For a smaller coverage area, you can select a lower output power. For the maximum Wi-Fi coverage

    normally the Range Extender or your router.
    DHCP: The Range Extender includes a complex auto DHCP
    feature to help manage the IP addresses within your
    Extended network and with your Home Network. When
    connected to a Home Network, the Range Extender will
    obtain an IP address from your Home Network’s router and
    act as a DHCP Client. However, when there is no
    connection available, the Range Extender will act as a DHCP
    Server. You may also manually control the IP settings of the
    Range Extender by choosing Client, Server or Disabled from
    the DHCP drop-down menu. This is only for advanced users.
    ————————————————————————————————————–
    DHCP Client Range: The range of IP addresses the Range Extender’s DHCP server will assign to users and
    devices connecting to the Range Extender.
    Static DHCP: You may set a static IP address within your DHCP network. The Range Extender will track the
    device via its MAC address and assign it a pre-defined IP address each time the device logs into the network.
    Obtain IP settings from the Home router or manually enter your IP settings.
    Auto-Load Menu (Auto-DNS): When the Range Extender loses connection to your Home Network it will
    automatically redirect your web browser to the web menu. To turn this feature off, you can disable Auto-DNS.
    Note: Disabling Auto-DNS will require that you access the web menu using the IP address of this device. It is
    recommended that you note your IP address before changing this mode. If you are no longer able to access
    the web menu, you will need to perform a hardware reset.
    Domain Name: The Domain Name allows you to change the URL which is used to access the Setup Menu for
    the Range Extender. For example, entering http://setup.ampedwireless.com into your web browser while
    connected to the Range Extender, will guide you to the Web menu for the Range Extender. By changing the
    Domain Name, you will change the URL entered to access the Web menu. If you forget the Domain Name you
    entered and can no longer access the Web menu, then you will need to reset your Range Extender to default
    settings by holding down the reset button on the back panel for 5-10 seconds.

    I cannot connect to my Home Network. I received an error when running the Wizard.
    a. Your Home Network may be secured. Double check that you have the correct security key to connect
    to the Home Network.
    b. Your Range Extender may be located too far from your Home Network. Run through the Setup Wizard
    again. On the SCAN page, your Home Network should show a signal strength of 70% or greater. If it
    does not, move the Range Extender closer to your Home Network and try again.
    c. Check to see that your Home Network router’s DHCP server is enabled. The Range Extender needs to
    obtain an IP from your Home Network router.
    I cannot find my Home Network when scanning for Wi-Fi networks in the Wizard.
    a. The Range Extender may be out of range. Move the Range Extender closer towards the Wi-Fi router
    and try the Wizard again from the Web Menu. It is recommended that your Home Network shows a
    signal strength of 70% or greater in the Wizard SCAN results.
    b. The Home Network may be a dual-band Wi-Fi router. The Range Extender supports 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz
    routers. If your Home Network uses a dual-band router, it will not work with the Range Extender. Adjust
    the dual-band router’s configuration to disable the 5GHz band.
    c. Go to the Smart Features tab in the web menu and access the Wi-Fi Coverage Controls. Make sure the
    setting is at 100% and try again.

    SSID is hidden, you will need to manually set up the Range Extender through the Wi-Fi Settings > Home
    Network Settings menu.
    My Range Extender was working fine previously but now I can no longer access the Internet through the Range
    Extender. Or, I had a POWER OUTAGE and now the Range Extender no longer works.
    a. The connection to your Home Network has been dropped. This can be caused by several events to your
    home Wi-Fi connection. When this occurs, simply run the Wizard again from the web menu and
    reconfigure the Range Extender.
    b. The Range Extender automatically reconfigures itself in the event of a channel change on your router.
    However, in the case that it does not, check to see that your home Wi-Fi router settings have not
    changed. Any changes to the SSID, security, or channel number from the original settings will disconnect
    the Range Extender’s connection to the home network. A power outage can cause a change in the
    channel of your router. To solve this simply run the Wizard again from the web menu and reconfigure
    your Home Network connection. You can also set a static channel number on your router to prevent
    this from happening again in the future.
    c. If you cannot access the web menu, check to see that your Range Extender is still on. Reboot the Range
    Extender by unplugging the Range Extender and plugging it back in. Check to see if your connection has
    ————————————————————————————————————
    been reestablished by viewing a website. If you do not have a connection, logon to
    http://setup.ampedwireless.com and configure a new Home Network connection.
    d. Check to see that your home Wi-Fi router is still on. If it has been turned off please turn it back on. The
    Range Extender should automatically reconnect to your Home Network within 10 minutes.
    I have a dual-band router and I cannot extend it.
    a. Log into the Web Menu for your dual-band Wi-Fi router and adjust the Wi-Fi settings. Change the WiFi
    band to 2.4GHz single band mode only. The Range Extender will not be able to extend the 5GHz band.
    I cannot find any Wi-Fi networks (Home Networks) to extend.
    a. The Range Extender may be out of range. Move the Range Extender closer towards the Wi-Fi router
    and try the Setup Wizard again from the Web Menu.
    b. The antenna on your Range Extender may be loose. Tighten the antenna connection and try again.
    c. The Wi-Fi Home Network may not be a compatible Wi-Fi network (802.11b/g/n).
    —————————————————————————————————————
    I am connected to a Home Network, however, I do not have Internet Access.
    a. The Home Network itself may not have Internet access. Check to see that you have internet access by
    connecting directly to the Home Network first. If you are able to go online then this is not a problem. If
    you cannot go online, then the Home Network’s Internet connection must first be resolved.
    b. You may have a DNS issue and the Range Extender is not obtaining the IP settings from your Home
    Network. Try to reboot the Range Extender and then accessing a website. If that fails, then reboot the
    Home Router to see if that fixes it.
    c. There may be an IP conflict with your Home Network and your Extended Network. Try to adjust the IP
    Settings of your Extended Network using IP values that are different from your Home Network.
    I can no longer connect to the Range Extender wirelessly.
    a. Power on and off the Range Extender and try again.
    b. The connection to the Home Network may be down. Use an Ethernet cable and connect directly to the
    Range Extender. Access http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard again. After you
    have successfully reset the Home Network connection, try connecting wirelessly again.
    —————————————————————————————————————
    I could NEVER log onto the Range Extender Wirelessly.
    a. Check that your Wi-Fi adapter supports WPA2 Wi-Fi security. If it does not then you will need to change
    the Wi-Fi security on the Range Extender. Go to the Web Menu, select Wi-Fi Settings and then Wi-Fi
    Security. Select the Extended Network from the drop-down menu and either disable security or
    downgrade the security to WEP. Try connecting again.
    b. The connection to the Home Network may be down. Use an Ethernet cable and connect directly to the
    Range Extender. Access http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard again. After you
    have successfully reset the Home Network connection, try connecting wirelessly again.
    c. If you have previously connected to the Range Extender or a device with the same network
    name (SSID), the password might be saved in your devices Wi-Fi profile. Delete the Wi-Fi
    profile and try again. (Refer to your device Manufacturers guide on how to delete the Wi-Fi
    profile.)
    I can no longer access the Web Menu or the Range Extender no longer responds.
    a. Connect to your Range Extender and try to access http://setup.ampedwireless.com using your web
    browser.
    b. If you are advanced in networking troubleshooting, log onto your home router’s web interface. Look
    for the DHCP client list and try to find the IP address of your Range Extender assigned by your home
    —————————————————————————————————————
    router. Once you have it, connect to the Range Extender using an Ethernet cable. Open your web
    browser and enter the IP address into the address bar.
    c. Reset the Range Extender back to default settings and try the Wizard again. To reset the Range Extender
    back to default settings, push the Reset Button (on the back panel) down for five (5) to ten (10) seconds
    then let go. After the Range Extender has fully reset, use an Ethernet cable and connect to the Range
    Extender. Login to the Web Menu at http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard.
    The connection to the Home Network seems slow. File transfers take a long time to transfer.
    a. You may be too far away from your Home Network. The closer the Range Extender is to your Home
    Network, the better its connection will be. The Range Extender must have a strong signal in order to
    extend the signal with fast speeds and further range. Move the Range Extender closer to your Home
    Network and try again.
    b. You may be downloading from the Internet and not within your Home Network or Extended Network.
    Files transferred through the Internet are limited by your ISP speed and the data download speeds from
    the website that you are downloading from.
    c. Your computer may be using an older Wi-Fi adapter with lower speed limits (802.11b/g).
    ===============================================================================================================
    The range from the Range Extender seems low.
    a. Check to see that your Wi-Fi output settings are at 100%. Go to the Web Menu, Wi-Fi Settings and check
    the Advanced Settings. Make sure the output power is at 100%.
    b. Your Range Extender may be installed in a poor location. Avoid setting up your Range Extender in areas
    with high interference, such as near refrigerators, microwaves, metallic objects and low surfaces. Install
    the Range Extender in a higher location if possible.
    c. Check the connections of the Antennas to the Range Extender. Tighten them if necessary.
    d. Adjust the Antennas of the Range Extender in different angles.
    My Wi-Fi Access Schedule is being erratic and not working at the correct times.
    a. You need to adjust your Time Zone Settings from the Management Web Menu page.
    Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is not working. Push button configuration does not detect the connection.
    a. The Range Extender supports WPS connections, however some companies may use proprietary code
    for their own push button configurations. Try connecting using the Windows Wi-Fi utility or Mac Wi-Fi

    >and once the setup is complete then it will ask you connect the wireless device to its network
    >so then connect your phone or laptop to the extended network and once the device is connected ,click on finish.
    >now setup is complete

    or

    we can press the wps button on the extender for atleast 3 seconds and within 2 minutes, press and hold the wps button on the router for 3 seconds.
    and then wait for the lights to get stable again and once the light is stable it means extender is configured
    or we can check the wifi networks on our devices , once we see a extended network ,it means setup is complete
