1. Did I Connect the Repeater to the Router Properly?
Go on. Answer the question after getting it verified on your own. See if it is a cabled connection or a non-wired one.
Scenario 1: Wired Connection
So you have used an Ethernet cable to join the two devices. Well, cabled connections are always more reliable. But the condition is that the cable that you have used is in good condition. Besides, the cable shouldn’t be loose from any end. Apart from this, the right ports have to be put to use to join the devices. Verify all these points and you will get to the answer to the question above.
Scenario 2: Non-Wired Connection
In case the connection between the router and repeater is a non-wired one, you should check the distance separating the two devices. The distance between the repeater and router should be such that the devices can communicate easily. If they are far from each other then bringing them near to each other will help.
2. Have I Connected Computer to the Repeater’s Network?
Do you know, you can log in to your Wireless N WiFi Repeater only when you are connected to its network? Seems you missed this fact. Why don’t you make the connection now? Go ahead and use the SSID of your repeater and get connected to it on your PC.
You can also use a cable to make the network connection. Once done, try to log in.
3. Am I Able to Connect to Repeater’s WiFi?
