Follow Kasa’s instructions to reinitiate the App-Config process or use Option
2 to set up the extender using a computer.
There are two options to factory reset the extender:
●
Option One: With the extender powered on, use a pin to press and hold
the RESET button until all LEDs turn off and turn back on (about 2
seconds), then release the button.
●
Option Two: Restore the default settings from the extender’s
web-based interface. Go to System Tools > Restore & Backup.
Q4. What should I do if I cannot access the extender’s web-based
interface?
Factory resetting your range extender will erase the current
configuration settings.
Q2.
●
Make sure that http://tplinkrepeater.net is entered correctly.
●
Make sure that you only use either Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection
when accessing the extender’s web-based interface but not both.
●
If you use a computer to access the extender’s web-based
interface, make sure that it is configured to obtain an IP address
automatically (DHCP).
●
If the problem still persists, contact our technical support.
I forgot my password, what should I do?
There are two types of passwords: Wi-Fi password and admin account’s
password.
●
How do I check the Wi-Fi signal strength of my extended networks?
An easy way to check the signal strength is to access the dashboard of
the extender. Go to Settings > Status, the Uplink Signal and the Uplink
Speed are shown under both of your extended networks.
Wi-Fi Password
The Wi-Fi password of your extended network is the same as your
main (host) network.
●
Q5.
Q6.
Why the 2.4GHz and 5GHz LEDs on the extender are lit in amber?
Admin account’s Password
The default admin password, which is used to access the
extender’s web-based interface, is admin (all lowercase). If you
have changed and forgotten the admin password, you will have to
factory reset the extender to its original state. Refer to the Factory
Amber indicates that the extender is connected, but it is far away from
the main (host) router (or AP). You should relocate it closer to the router
or use the Location Assistant feature on the Kasa mobile app to find a
best location to place the extender.

Glossary
●
802.11b – The 802.11b standard, also known as Wi-Fi, which provides
speeds up to 11 Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS)
technology and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at 2.4GHz,
and WEP encryption for security.
●
802.11g – The 802.11g specification is for wireless networking at 54
Mbps using direct-sequence spread-spectrum (DSSS) technology, using
OFDM modulation and operating in the unlicensed radio spectrum at
2.4GHz, and backward compatibility with IEEE 802.11b devices, and
WEP encryption for security.
●
802.11n – 802.11n builds upon previous 802.11 standards by adding
MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output). MIMO uses multiple transmitter
and receiver antennas to allow for increased data throughput via spatial
multiplexing and increased range by exploiting the spatial diversity,
perhaps through coding schemes like Alamouti coding. The Enhanced
Wireless Consortium (EWC) was formed to help accelerate the IEEE
802.11n development process and promote a technology specification

for interoperability of next-generation wireless local area networking
(WLAN) products.
●
Access Point (Range Extender) – A wireless LAN transceiver or "base
station" that can connect a wired LAN to one or many wireless devices.
Access points can also bridge to each other.
●
DNS (Domain Name System) – An Internet Service that translates the
names of websites into IP addresses.
●
Domain Name - A descriptive name for an address or group of
addresses on the Internet.
●
DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) – A technology that allows data to be sent or
received over existing traditional phone lines.
●
ISP (Internet Service Provider) – A company that provides access to the
Internet.
●
MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) – The size in bytes of the largest
packet that can be transmitted.
●
SSID – A Service Set Identification is a thirty-two character (maximum)
alphanumeric key identifying a wireless local area network. For the
wireless devices in a network to communicate with each other, all devices
must be configured with the same SSID. This is typically the configuration
parameter for a wireless PC card. It corresponds to the ESSID in the
wireless Access Point and to the wireless network name.
●
WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) – A data privacy mechanism based on a
64-bit or 128-bit or 152-bit shared key algorithm, as described in the IEEE
802.11 standard.
●
Wi-Fi – A trademark of the Wi-Fi Alliance and the brand name for
products using the IEEE 802.11 family of standards.
●
WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) – A group of computers and
associated devices communicate with each other wirelessly, which
network serving users are limited in a local area.
●
WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) – WPA is a security technology for
wireless networks that improves on the authentication and encryption
features of WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy). In fact, WPA was developed
by the networking industry in response to the shortcomings of WEP. One
of the key technologies behind WPA is the Temporal Key Integrity
Protocol (TKIP). TKIP addresses the encryption weaknesses of WEP.
Another key component of WPA is built-in authentication that WEP does
not offer. With this feature, WPA provides roughly comparable security to
VPN tunneling with WEP, with the benefit of easier administration and use.
This is similar to 802.1x support and requires a RADIUS server in order to
implement. The Wi-Fi Alliance will call this, WPA-Enterprise. One variation
of WPA is called WPA Pre Shared Key or WPA-Personal for short - this
provides an authentication alternative to an expensive RADIUS server.
WPA-Personal is a simplified but still powerful form of WPA most suitable
for home Wi-Fi networking. To use WPA-Personal, a person sets a static
key or "passphrase" as with WEP. But, using TKIP, WPA-Personal
automatically changes the keys at a preset time interval, making it much
more difficult for hackers to find and exploit them. The Wi-Fi Alliance will
call this, WPA-Personal.
