To set up a Belkin Wi-Fi range extender, connect the range extender to a computer and a power outlet, then use Belkin's Web-based setup page to configure the extender to the Wi-Fi and create an extended network. The Web-based setup page guides users through the process of creating an extended network.
Belkin Wi-Fi range extenders create a larger network out of an already-existing Wi-Fi signal. The extender plugs into the wall and allows the Wi-Fi network to reach further and be stronger throughout the surrounding area. Use the following steps to set up a Belkin Wi-Fi extender.
- Plug the Wi-Fi extender into the computer and a wall outlet.
- Turn off the computer's Wi-Fi and go to Belkin's Web-based setup page.
- Click on "Get Started" and select the computer's 5 gHz wireless network.
- Click on the computer's 2.4 gHz network and create an extended network.
Use an Ethernet cord to connect the extender to a computer, and then plug the extender into a power outlet.
Enter "http://Belkin.range" into a Web browser to reach the setup page.
Click on the computer's 5 gHz network and enter the network's password when prompted.
Press next and locate the computer's 2.4 gHz Wi-Fi network. Click "Next" and then click on "Create Extended Network" to successfully create a more extended network out of the computer's Wi-Fi signal.
