2. Press the WPS button on your host router which supports OneMesh function, and then press the WPS button on the extender for 1 second within 2 minutes.

 

3. Wait until the signal LEDchanges from blinking to solid on, which indicates that the WPS connection is successful.

Note: It is recommended to enable Smart Connect on your host router to enjoy a seamless connection between dual-band networks. With Smart Connect enabled, your host router’s 2.4GHz and 5GHz share the same SSID (network name) and password. Refer to your host router’s user guide to enable Smart Connect.

5. Relocate your extender for optimal Wi-Fi coverage and performance.

1).Plug in the extender about halfway between your router and the Wi-Fi dead zone. The location you choose must be within the range of your router.

2).Wait for about 2 minutes until the Signal LEDturns solid white. If it doesn’t, relocate the extender closer to the router to achieve better signal quality.

Tip: To minimize signal interference, please choose a location which is far away from Bluetooth devices and other household electronic devices, such as cordless phones, microwave ovens and baby monitors.
