Setting up your D-Link Wi-Fi Extender as an Access Point is quick and easy with the web-based setup wizard. This article will guide you through the steps to get your new Access Point up and running in no time!
D-Link Extender Setup As Access Point
If you have a D-Link wireless router and want to use it as an access point, you can do so by following these simple steps. First, connect the D-Link router to your computer using an Ethernet cable. Next, log into the router’s web interface and go to the Wireless Settings page. On this page, you will need to disable the wireless security settings. Once you have done this, you can then connect the D-Link extender to the router using an Ethernet cable. Finally, go to the Extender Setup page using Web Address http://dlinkap.local on the web interface and configure the extender as an access point.
D-Link Extender use to Kill Dead Wifi Zone Areas
If you have a home with a lot of square footage, you know the importance of having a good WiFi signal in every corner. But sometimes, no matter how many routers or repeaters you have, there are still dead zones. That’s where the D-Link Extender comes in. By using your existing WiFi signal, the D-Link Extender can extend your WiFi range to those hard-to-reach areas. And best of all, it can be set up as an access point, so you’ll have another spot for devices to connect to your network. Here’s how to do it:
1. Connect the D-Link Extender to an available power outlet and wait for it to power on.
2. Once the extender is on, press and hold the WPS button for two seconds. This will put the extender into AP mode.
3. On your computer or mobile device, connect to the D-Link Extender’s WiFi network (the SSID should be dlink-XXXXXX).
D-Link Extender Positioning After Setup and Range
After you have set up your D-Link extender as an access point, it is important to position the device in the right location. The ideal location for your D-Link extender is:
– In a central location in your home or office
– Near a window
– Away from large metal objects and electronic devices that can interfere with the signal
