2. Connect your device to the router wirelessly or via an Ethernet cable. The Wi-Fi network name and password are on the router’s label.

4. Click Next to start the Quick Setup.

5. Select Range Extender for the operation mode of the router.

6. Click Connect to connect to the host network in the AP List page.

7. Enter the password of the host network and then either copy the Wireless Name from the host network or customize it.

8. Select the LAN IP type of the router or leave the default settings Smart IP for most cases, and then click Next.

9. Click Finish to apply the settings.

10. Relocate the router about halfway between your host network and the Wi-Fi dead zone. The extended network shares the same Wi-Fi password as that of your host network, but may have different wireless network name if you have customized it during the configuration.
