Product Overview
Bring Dead Zones Back to Life
Tired of Wi-Fi “dead zones”? The TP-Link extender is connected to your router
wirelessly, strengthening its signal and expanding its coverage into areas that could not
otherwise be reached. The device also reduces signal interference to ensure reliable
Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home or office.
Easy Installation & Quick Position
The extender works with any standard wireless router. Instantly connect the extender
to a router by pressing the router’s WPS button (if available) followed by the extender’s
RE/WPS button. Alternatively, follow the Quick Setup instructions on the extender’s
web management page.
Once the extender is connected to a router, you can relocate it to your preferred location
with no further configuration required. The intelligent signal light can help to find the
best location.

2. 1. 1.
Method One: Via the WPS Button
1.Press the WPS button on your host router, and then press the WPS button on the
extender within 2 minutes.
Tips:
• Some ISP gateways disable the WPS function by default. If the WPS connection fails, please refer to
Method Two: Via a Web Browser.
• For more information about using WPS button on your host router, please refer to the router
manufacturer’s user guide.
2.Wait until the Signal LED changes to solid blue, which indicates that the WPS
connection is successful. If it doesn’t, please refer to Method Two: Via a Web Browser.
3.Enjoy! Connect to the extended network and enjoy internet. The extended network
shares the same SSID (network name) and password as those of your host network.
Tips:
Since the performance of the extended network will be affected by the distance between the extender
and host router, we recommend that you relocate your extender by referring to Position Your Extender.

Q5.I enabled wireless MAC filter, wireless access control, or access
control list (ACL) on my router, what should I do to configure and use
the extender?
When a device connects through the extender to your router, the MAC address of the
device shown on the router is translated to another MAC address. If your router’s MAC
filter, wireless access control, or ACL is enabled, the devices connected to the extender
cannot get an IP address from the extender and cannot access internet.

1.Log in to your router and disable the MAC filter, wireless access control or ACL.
Note: For more information about how to disable your router’s MAC filter, wireless access control or ACL,
please refer to your router’s user guide.
