How to set up a new secure wireless network using Powerline ac Wi-Fi Kit by Pair button
User’s Application Scenario:
I have a wireless router in my house, but the wireless signal cannot reach every corner. So I bought a Powerline Wi- Fi Kit to extend the wireless network. The Powerline Wi-Fi Kit includes a powerline adapter and a powerline extender.
How can I do that?
Follow the steps below.
Note: TL-WPA8630 KIT is used for demonstration in this article.
Connect the powerline adapter to an available LAN port of the host router. Plug the powerline adapter into a wall socket. Plug the powerline extender into a wall socket near the adapter.
Pair the powerline devices.
a. Press the Pair button of the powerline adapter for 1 second. The Power LED starts blinking.
Note: If the Power LED does not blink, press it again.
b. Within two minutes, press the Pair button of the powerline extender for 1 second. The Power LED starts blinking. When the Powerline LED stays on, the pairing process is done!
Find the Wi-Fi Info Card in the package, and then relocate the powerline extender to a new location. Connect to the Wi-Fi using the SSID and password on the card.
Note: A red Powerline LED indicates poor signal strength, we recommend another location.
Now enjoy the Internet with the SSID and password printed on the Wi-Fi Info Card!
If you would like to customize your powerline ac extender’s wireless settings please go to step 4.
