@Gary.c-9 

 

What is the model number of your range extender? And what about the current light status? 


You can connect your computer to cellphone to the extender and log into the web UI to configure it. You can watch the setup video to give it a go.

May it help.

Hi Gary, you can hard reset it by holding the reset hole for 1s with it powered on. 

 

You can wait 1-2 minutes to make it restart. Then you can connect the smart phone to the default extender's wifi and open a web browser, enter 192.168.0.254 or tplinkrepeater.net in the address bar to log in with admin. 

 

Next,  go to settings-connected network and select your home wifi and enter its password and click save. 

 

After that, you can reboot the extender and verify whether it works well. 

 

Good day.
