GETTING STARTED
It is recommended that you first set up this extender somewhere close to the
root wireless access point, and then move this extender to another location
for optimal Wi-Fi extension.
Section A: Setting Up the Wi-Fi Extender with the WPS Button
Note: If your root wireless access point does not
have a WPS button or if you cannot set up a WPS
connection properly, please refer to Section B:
Setting Up the Wi-Fi Extender with a Computer.
2
1. Plug the Wi-Fi extender into a power outlet close to the root wireless
access point and switch it on (1). The extender will automatically initialize.
In a few seconds, the Power LED ( ) will light up. Approximately 30
seconds afterwards, the Wi-Fi LED ( ) will begin to flash rapidly and
irregularly (2). This indicates initialization is complete. Please do not
proceed to step 2 until these conditions are fulfilled.
(2)
(1)
2. Press and hold the WPS button on the extender for 2 seconds, until the
WPS LED ( ) starts flashing.
3. Press the WPS button on the root wireless access point within 2 minutes to
establish a connection. The amount of time the button should be held
down will vary between different routers, some will work with a quick
press, while others may require holding the button down for 2 seconds or
more.
3
Note: Some wireless routers may reboot if the WPS
button is held down for too long. To prevent
accidentally rebooting your router, please refer to
your router user manual for detailed instructions
regarding WPS operation.
4. The WPS LED ( ) will go through a series of flashes over the next 60 to 90
seconds. When a WPS connection has been successfully established, the
green WPS LED ( ) will stay on, and the Signal Strength LED ( ) will light
up in orange.
Troubleshooting: If the WPS LED ( ) continues to
blink in regular two-second intervals 30 seconds
after pressing the WPS button on the access point,
then the Wi-Fi extender did not detect the WPS
signal from the access point. Please return to step 3.
If an error occurred, the WPS LED ( ) will flash
rapidly. Please wait for the WPS LED to deactivate
and try again from step 1.
5 minutes after a WPS connection has been
established, the WPS LED ( ) will automatically
deactivate. The WPS connection between the
extender and the wireless access point will remain
active.
5. You may test the connectivity of the Wi-Fi extender by connecting to it
(select its SSID from your list of wireless networks, not the SSID of your
4
root wireless access point) and attempting to open a web page with your
web browser.
6. After you have connected the extender to the existing Wi-Fi network and
confirmed it works, you can move this extender to another location for
optimal Wi-Fi extension. To move the extender, turn off the device and
unplug it from its socket. The extender will remember the Wi-Fi network it
is assigned to. Move the extender to its new location and plug it in, then
turn the device on again. The extender will go through its initialization
process after being turned on. You will be unable to connect to the
extender while it is initializing. When the green Wi-Fi LED ( ) begins
flashing irregularly and the orange Signal Strength LED ( ) activates, the
extender is ready for use.
For best results, install the extender at a location where the Signal Strength
LED ( ) remains on without blinking. This indicates the extender is
receiving a strong signal from the root wireless access point.
Section B: Setting Up the Wi-Fi Extender with a Computer
1. First make sure that your computer is a DHCP client (it obtains its IP
automatically from a DHCP server). If you are unsure, please refer to the
User Manual on the enclosed CD.
2. Plug the Wi-Fi extender into a power outlet close to the root wireless
access point and switch it on (1). The extender will automatically initialize.
In a few seconds, the Power LED ( ) will light up. Approximately 30
seconds afterwards, the Wi-Fi LED ( ) will begin to flash rapidly and
irregularly (2). This indicates initialization is complete. Please do not
proceed to step 3 until these conditions are fulfilled.

3. There are two ways to connect to the Wi-Fi extender. The first is a wired
connection, using an Ethernet cable (i). The second is to connect wirelessly
(ii).
i.
To connect your computer to the extender with an Ethernet cable,
plug one end of the cable into the Wi-Fi extender’s Ethernet port.
Plug the other end of the cable into your computer’s Ethernet port.
Please proceed to step 4 when done.
ii.
To connect your computer to the extender through a wireless
connection, search for the available Wi-Fi networks in the area and
look for “extender******”, where ****** is a series of numbers
and letters. For example, here you would connect to
“extender3a8270”:
Note: If you are using Windows 7 and the following
appears, please click “Connect the network without
setting it up”. Please do not click “OK”.
6
If you have accidentally clicked “OK”, you will see
the following. Please click “Cancel”.
4. Now you should be connected to the Wi-Fi extender. There are two ways
to access the extender’s web configuration interface:
Method 1: Open your web browser and input the access key into the
address bar to log in to the extender’s web configuration interface.
(Windows PCs only)
Note: The access key can be found on the access
key card in the box and on the Wi-Fi extender.
7
http://extender3a8270
http://extender3a8270
Method 2: Enter the extender’s default IP address (192.168.2.2) into your
browser’s address bar. (Windows, Macintosh, and Linux)
5. You will then be prompted to log in. The default username is “admin” and
the default password is “1234”. Click “OK” to continue.
8
6. iQ Setup will start detecting available Wi-Fi networks automatically. All
detected Wi-Fi networks will be displayed in the list. Select the one you
wish to connect to.
Note: If the Wi-Fi network you wish to connect to
does not appear, click “Refresh” to detect again or
try to move the extender closer to the root wireless
access point.
7. Input the password of the existing Wi-Fi network in the “Key” field and click
“Next” to continue. The extender must have the same Wi-Fi password as
the root wireless access point.
9
Note: The extender will be unable to connect to the
Wi-Fi network if you enter the wrong password. If
you do not know your Wi-Fi password, you may find
it via your Wi-Fi router’s configuration, or consult
the network administrator who set up the Wi-Fi
network.
8. By default, the extender’s SSID is the root access point’s SSID plus the last
six characters of the extender’s access key. You can change the extender’s
SSID if you want. Click “Next” to complete the setup.
9. The Wi-Fi extender will test the connection between the device and the
root wireless access point. If the connection is successful, the message
“Connection Test Successfully” will appear on-screen. Click “Next” to save
settings.
If the connection failed, the message “Connection Test Failed” will appear
on-screen. Click “BACK” to restart the setup process.
10. The extender will show a brief summary of the name of the root wireless
access point, the name of the extender, and the security type used. Click
“APPLY” to continue, or click “BACK” to restart the setup process.
11. After you click “APPLY” the extender will restart and save its settings. You
will see a final congratulations page. Your computer will be disconnected
from the extender at this time. To reconnect to the extender, select its SSID
from your list of Wi-Fi networks.
10
12. You may test the connectivity of the Wi-Fi extender by connecting to it
(select its SSID from your list of wireless networks, not the SSID of your
root Wi-Fi access point) and attempting to open a web page with your web
browser.
13. After you have connected the extender to the existing Wi-Fi network and
confirmed it works, you can move this extender to another location for
optimal Wi-Fi extension. To move the extender, turn off the device and
unplug it from its socket. The extender will remember the Wi-Fi network it
is assigned to. Move the extender to its new location and plug it in, then
turn the device on again. The extender will go through its initialization
process after being turned on. You will be unable to connect to the
extender while it is initializing. When the green Wi-Fi LED ( ) begins
flashing irregularly and the orange Signal Strength LED ( ) activates, the
extender is ready for use.
For best results, install the extender at a location where the Signal Strength
LED ( ) remains on without blinking. This indicates it is receiving a strong
signal from the root wireless access point.
Resetting the Wi-Fi Extender
If your Wi-Fi extender is not functioning correctly, or if you want to run iQ
Setup again, press and hold the WPS button for 10 seconds to reset the
extender to factory defaults. The Power LED ( ) will flash when the device
begins the process of resetting to factory defaults. When the Power LED ( )
stays on and the Wi-Fi LED ( ) begins flashing irregularly, the Wi-Fi extender
has returned to factory default settings and is ready for setup.
Note: Releasing the WPS button too soon may
result in unintended behavior, such as the extender
attempting to begin WPS setup.

Notice According to GNU General Public License Version 2
This product includes software that is subject to the GNU General Public License version 2. The program is free software and
distributed without any warranty of the author. We offer, valid for at least three years, to give you, for a charge no more
than the costs of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding source
code.
Das Produkt beinhaltet Software, die den Bedingungen der GNU/GPL-Version 2 unterliegt. Das Programm ist eine sog. „Free
Software“, der Autor stellt das Programm ohne irgendeine Gewährleistungen zur Verfügung. Wir bieten Ihnen für einen
Zeitraum von drei Jahren an, eine vollständige maschinenlesbare Kopie des Quelltextes der Programme zur Verfügung zu
stellen – zu nicht höheren Kosten als denen, die durch den physikalischen Kopiervorgang anfallen.
GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE
Version 2, June 1991
Copyright (C) 1989, 1991 Free Software Foundation, Inc. 51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor, Boston, MA 02110-1301, USA
Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
Preamble
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General
Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free
for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation’s software and to any other
program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Lesser
General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make
sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive
source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that
you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender
the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you
modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights
that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms
so they know their rights.
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal
permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author’s protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for
this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they
have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors’ reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a
free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have
made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone’s free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be
distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The ‘“Program’“, below, refers to any such program or work, and a
‘“work based on the Program’“ means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work
containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language.
(Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term ‘“modification’“.) Each licensee is addressed as ‘“you’“.
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The
act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a
work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on
what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program’s source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that
you conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep
15
intact all the notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty; and give any other recipients of the
Program a copy of this License along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and you may at your option offer warranty protection in
exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and
copy and distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1 above, provided that you also meet all of these
conditions:
a)
You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices stating that you changed the files and the date of any
change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in whole or in part contains or is derived from the
Program or any part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third parties under the terms of this
License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively when run, you must cause it, when started
running for such interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an announcement including an
appropriate copyright notice and a notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide a warranty)
and that users may redistribute the program under these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of
this License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but does not normally print such an announcement,
your work based on the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the
Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms,
do not apply to those sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as
part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of this License,
whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote
it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent
is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the
Program) on a volume of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object code or executable form under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a)
Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must be distributed under
the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than
your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete machine-readable copy of the corresponding
source code, to be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding source code. (This
alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you received the program in object code or
executable form with such an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. For an executable work,
complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus
the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source code
distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary form) with the major
components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering
equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third
parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly provided under this License. Any
attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights
under this License. However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to
modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License.
Therefore, by modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the Program or works based on it.
16
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient automatically receives a license
from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not
impose any further restrictions on the recipients’ exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent
issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of
this License, they do not excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you may not
distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License
would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is
intended to apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right claims or to contest validity
of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the integrity of the free software distribution system,
which is implemented by public license practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of
software distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to the author/donor to
decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces,
the original copyright holder who places the Program under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution
limitation excluding those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In such
case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General Public License from time to time.
Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or
concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version number of this License which applies
to it and ‘“any later version’“, you have the option of following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later
version published by the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this License, you
may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
