- Setting up the Belkin Wi-Fi Range Extender wirelessly
The Belkin Wi-Fi Range Extenders are devices that act as repeaters for the router's wireless signal. They can be set up without using cables and wires. The steps below will guide you on how to set up your range extender wirelessly.
Before you begin, ensure that you have the following:
A Belkin Wi-Fi Range Extender.
An existing Wi-Fi® network and its wireless router's network name (SSID) and wireless password.
QUICK TIP: If you are using a dual-band router, secure the SSID and wireless password of both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz network bands.
A Wi-Fi-capable device (e.g., computer, tablet, smartphone).
Plug in your range extender into a power outlet that is within the range of your router's wireless network.
Using your Wi-Fi-capable device, locate and connect to the Belkin.setup network.
NOTE: If you are unable to see this network, you may need to reset the range extender. To do this, simply press the range extender's reset button for at least 10 seconds while it is turned ON. Power cycle the range extender then connect to the network again.
Launch a browser and enter "http://belkin.range" in the Address bar then tap Go.
NOTE: You can also enter "http://192.168.206.1" in the Address bar to access the range extender's web-based setup page.
On the page that opens, tap on Get Started.
Select the wireless network you want to extend. Tap Next once done.
NOTE: Click Refresh if your network is not on the list.
When prompted, enter your wireless network's password then tap Next.
If you have a dual-band network, select the second wireless network you want to extend then repeat Step 6. Tap Next once done.
NOTE: If you are using a single-band Belkin Wi-Fi Range Extender, it will only detect the 2.4 GHz band.
Review the Extended Network information. Tap Edit if the information needs to be changed. Otherwise, tap the Create Extended Network button to proceed with the setup.
Your extender is now configured. You will see your network settings on the screen, and you will have the option to print the information when needed.
