Connection help

Don’t know if you’re connecting via router or extender?
The easiest way is to compare the signal strength displayed on your device with the
extender switched on and off. The extender simply relays the data from your hub/router.
It’s your device that controls which signal it connects to.
Can’t connect extender to router
If the range lights continue to scroll back and forth for more than 1 minute after
connection attempt. Check your hub/router is switched on and try moving your
extender closer to it.
If your device often loses internet access and the extender’s Too far or a bit too far light
is on, try moving the extender to another socket.
If you are trying to use WPS but it doesn’t work (Too far and Too close (red) lights
continue to flash), it may be that it’s incompatible with the WPS function in the extender.
Try switching the extender Off then On and repeat Method 1. If it still fails, follow the
steps in Method 2, to connect without using the WPS button.
If you’re unable to connect using Method 2, check you have selected the correct
wireless network and you’ve entered the correct wireless key.
Can’t connect to internet
Check your router is connected to the internet and your wi-fi is working correctly.
Can’t connect your device to wireless
Make sure your device is correctly set-up to connect to your hub/router before trying
to use the extender.
Microwaves and some electrical equipment may interfere with the wireless signal.
Check the lights on your extender and make sure you are in Good range, if not see the
section ‘Move extender to optimum location’.
Thick/concrete walls and ceilings will affect wireless performance.
All lights are off
Check the power socket is working and switched on.
Check the extender is turned on (the On/Off button is on the top).

The band switch
This switch sets the frequency band your extender uses to connect to the hub/router.
By default your extender uses the 2.4GHz band for maximum range and compatibility.
If you have a dual-band hub/router (e.g. BT Home Hub 4 or 5), selecting the 5GHz
band may improve performance (speed) as there is less wireless congestion.
To change to the 5GHz band, unplug the
extender, move the band switch to the
5 position and go to step
Method 2 -
Without WPS button.
Selecting the 5GHz band may reduce the range and you
will need to move the extender closer to your hub/router.

I'm unable to connect any device to11ac Dual-Band Wi-Fi Extender 1200. Have followed the instructions to the letter, the extender is showing Good Range and the devices are picking up the boosted signal network names (Ext 2- and Ext 5-). Unfortunately the I can't log on with the router wireless key as it won't authenticate it/doesn't recognise it? I've switched off the connection directly to the router and it has made no difference. When I use the same wireless key to connect directly to the router it connects with no problem? Any advice, Thanks
