2. Select your host router’s 2.4GHz SSID (network name), enter the password (NOT the password you just created for the login of web management page), and click Next.

3. Either keep the default SSID (network name) or customize it for the 2.4GHz extended network, and then click Next.

4. Verify your wireless settings and click Save.

5. Enjoy! Connect to the extended network and enjoy the internet. The extended network shares the same wireless password as those of your host network, but may have different network names if you have customized the SSID during the configuration.
