you are not connected to your extender’s wifi network
Internet connections are essential for everyone. There are connectivity issues, especially when you’re in large spaces. Wi-Fi extenders are often used to fix this problem, but they also have their fair share of problems.
A common complaint is that “you aren’t connected to your extender’s Wi-Fi”. We are now sharing troubleshooting tips!
You are not connected to your Extender’s WiFi network
1) Reset the Wi-Fi Extender
Depending on the Wi-Fi extender brand, the position and location of the reset button may vary. The reset button is usually located near the ethernet cable connector. The reset button can be pressed with the needle. Many extenders have a switch button. For Wi-Fi extenders that have the switch button, press the reset button for ten seconds, then wait a few minutes.
After a few minutes, insert the extender’s switch and your internet settings will be reset. You will need to adjust the settings once the extender turns off. You can continue to the next step if the extender is still not connecting to Wi-Fi.
2 Forget The Extender
It is a quick turnaround to connect the extender to the Wi-Fi network. Now, forgetting the extender or network must be done from your computer. Below are the steps to forgetting your extender from the computer.
- First, press the Windows and I keys. This will open the Settings.
- Select the network or internet you wish to use and then tap Wi-Fi in the left tab
- Click on the Manage known Network option
- Next, click on the Wi-Fi extender. Hit the forget button
- The extender will be removed from the network list.
- Click on the top-right corner and then press the Wi-Fi icon
- Search for the network name of the extender and click the connect button
3) Same Network
Sometimes, an extender won’t connect to the Wi-Fi network if it is connected to the same network. You can check the SSID on the router to see if similar networks are available using other devices.
These settings can be changed by accessing the IP address. You can do this using the browser on your computer. Every company will have a different IP address for the router and extender. For more information, contact your internet service provider.
4) Hardware Issues
Hardware and physical problems can occur with most devices. Extensions can also have issues. We recommend that you inspect the front to ensure that all LEDs are on. The colors should be yellow and green if the extender is functioning properly.
If the LEDs do not turn on, check the charger or power outlet and replace it. You can also text the extender to a different power source. You could also try to replace the charger.
You should ensure that your extender is within range of any Wi-Fi network devices (modems, routers, internet hotspots, or broadband) whenever there are connectivity issues. When signals are weak, connectivity problems can occur with the Wi-Fi extender. You must reduce the distance between the router and the extender.
6) Wi-Fi Channel
It is important that you set the Wi-Fi channel settings for access points to fixed rather than auto. Because the auto mode causes the channels to change every time the extender restarts. These constant changes can negatively impact communication with access points. Set the Wi-Fi channel settings to be fixed and your Wi-Fi network will function better.
You must update your firmware whenever there is an issue with your Wi-Fi network or extender. The network connectivity will be improved by updating the firmware of your internet devices. You can access the firmware updates via the official website for the extender.
