Wavlink Extender Setup Troubleshooting
Getting issues with your wavlink extender setup like can not connect to the wavlink Wi-Fi? Or is your wavlink router login not working? If yes, then you can go through some troubleshooting steps and fix issues relating to the wavlink extender.
AP Setup Wavlink – Can’t Connect to WiFi
If you can see your Wi-Fi signal but still can’t connect to it, there may be several causes for the issue. Many of these issues are common and easy to fix, so don’t panic! In this article, we’ll go through some troubleshooting steps that should help you get connected quickly.
Power cycle the extender
- Turn off the extender and wait 30 seconds.
- Turn on the extender and wait for it to finish booting up.
- Try connecting again.
Check The Connection Between The Extender And Your Router
If you can see a Wi-Fi signal from your router but cannot connect to it, there are two likely causes:
- The extender may not be connected to the main router. Make sure that you have connected it correctly and that the connection is working properly.
- The extender may not be connected to the same router as your computer or other devices. If you have more than one router in your house, make sure that they are all connected together (e.g., with an Ethernet cable).
Connect Your Device Directly To Your Router With An Ethernet Cable
If you are able to connect your computer or phone directly to your router with an ethernet cable, then it is likely that the extender is not working properly. You may want to try using another router instead of the extender.
If this does not work, check whether all of your devices are connected to the same network as the extender and make sure that they are within range of it.
Change The Wireless Channel on Your Wi-Fi Router
If you have a dual-band router, try changing the wireless channel on your Wi-Fi router. Most routers have multiple channels that can be used to broadcast the signal. If one channel is interfering with another, change it to another channel.
On some routers, this might be as simple as checking which wireless channels are being used by nearby networks and choosing one that’s not in use. On others, you may need to manually select a specific channel number (1 through 11).
To change the wireless channel on your Wi-Fi router:
- Open an internet browser window and type http://192.168.1.1 into the address bar (followed by pressing Enter). This should take you directly to your router’s configuration page where you can make changes such as changing its network name (SSID), password, or wireless encryption settings
Wavlink Router Login Issue – Reboot Your Router
If you’re trying to connect to the Wi-Fi and can see the signal, but still can’t connect, try rebooting your router or modem.
Unplug the power source from your router or modem for a few seconds, then plug it back in. Wait for all of the lights on your router or modem to come back on before trying to connect again. If this doesn’t work, try following these steps:
- Make Sure Your WiFi Network Isn’t Hidden
- If you can see your Wi-Fi network but can’t connect to it, there could be a few reasons for this. One of the most common causes is that your Wi-Fi network might be hidden.
- If you’re trying to connect to a hidden network, you’ll have to make it visible first. To do so, go into your iPhone’s settings and select “Wi-Fi”. Then tap on the name of your Wi-Fi network until they appear below it in gray text (meaning they’re not connected).
192.168.10.1 – Wavelink Extender Issues
There are several causes for this issue. You can fix most of them easily and quickly.
- Make sure that the connection between the extender and your router is solid. You can do this by checking if there are any devices in connection with it, such as a printer or laptop. If there are no devices active, try to connect one of them directly to your router with an ethernet cable (overriding the extender). If you still cannot access the internet with these steps, move on to other solutions.
- Change the wireless channel on your Wi-Fi router. If there are many other nearby Wi-Fi networks in range using channels 1 through 11, change yours to 12 or 13 instead so they don’t interfere with each other’s signals and cause interference issues.
- Reboot both your Wi-Fi router and modem if changing channels did not help resolve this problem. Unplug them from their power sources for at least five minutes before plugging them back in again.
- If possible use wired Ethernet instead of wireless which may improve speed and reliability. Try rebooting again but make sure there are no changes since last time (new software update installed etc.)
These are just a few of the most common causes of wireless connectivity problems. There are others that may be specific to your situation or device, but these should give you a good starting point if you can’t connect to your Wi-Fi network.
Wavlink WiFi Extender Not Working?
Quick check: Is your Wavlink extender not working? If so, here are a few troubleshooting steps you can take. Note: Please use the device’s manual for more precise instructions.
Steps To Take When The Extender Fails To Connect To Router
If your Wavlink Wi-Fi extender isn’t working, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue. First, check the power LED on your extender to ensure that it’s blinking orange. If not, make sure that:
- Your devices are connected to the extender’s wireless network (SSID), which is usually wavlink_ext (if you’re using the default settings) or something similar if you’ve changed them.
- You’re within range of your extender. The distance between devices and their connection points is referred to as the “Wi-Fi range.” Depending on what kind of device you’re using and how much interference there might be in your area, this number will vary greatly—and may be smaller than what yours claims!
Also, make sure there isn’t another Wi-Fi router nearby that could interfere with yours; if there is one close by try moving it farther away from yourself and others until they no longer notice any problems with their internet connection or speed anymore!
Check That Your Devices Are Within Range Of Your Extender
The first and most basic thing to do when your Wavlink Wifi extender isn’t working is to make sure that you’re in range of it. If you’re not, then there’s nothing the device can do for you. Check out our article on how far away from the extender should be for optimal performance, as well as what kind of range you can expect based on the type of wireless devices you have.
Ensure that there’s a strong signal between the extender and its base router.
If you’re having trouble with your Wavlink Wi-Fi extender, the first thing to check is whether it’s connected and receiving a strong signal from its base router.
To do this:
- Make sure you are within range of the base router. The Wavlink Wi-Fi extender should be plugged into an outlet near your home’s router (or any other location where you want to increase coverage).
- If it’s not, move it until it receives a strong signal from the base station. Remember that higher speeds require more power.
- So if your home has many devices running at once or uses more bandwidth services like streaming music or video over Wi-Fi connections (like Netflix); consider adding another access point/extender.
- Check that both devices are connected to each other by checking for green lights on both sides (for example “WiFi” signified by three little bars)
Things You Can Do Before Contacting Support For Help
- Check the power LED. Make sure that your Wavlink Wi-Fi extender is powered on and connected to a working power source. The Wavlink Wi-Fi Extender base station uses a Micro USB cable to charge, so make sure that you have a USB power adapter plugged into an appropriate outlet.
- Check for connection status on your devices. Double check that all of your devices are connected to the same network as your Wavlink Wi-Fi Extender—if they’re not, connect them manually from their settings menus. This process differs depending on the device you’re using:
- Android device: Go to Settings > Wi-Fi; tap the name of your Wavlink Wi-Fi Extender listed under “Wi-Fi;” tap “Connect;” enter password (if applicable).
- iPhone/iPad/iPod touch: Tap Settings > Wi-Fi; select “Wavlink” from list of available networks; enter a passcode or key as necessary (the passcode or key will be printed on label attached to base station); press Join button in the upper right corner of screen if prompted, then wait while it connects
If, after following these steps and troubleshooting all these points, your extender is still not working properly, you can contact our customer support team. They will be happy to help you!
