Troubleshooting

The tips in this guide are listed in order of relevance. Try solution (a) before trying solution (b), etc.
  1. Make sure your computer is connected to the Range Extender’s Wi-Fi network: Amped_REC10
  2. Try to use a different web browser. We recommend the Google Chrome web browser.
  3. Try to open your web browser to the default IP address by putting this number into your web browser instead: 192.168.1.240
  4. Power off (unplug the Range Extender) the Range Extender and power it back on. Try again.
  5. Reset your Range Extender to default settings by holding the Reset Button (located on the back panel) for ten (10) seconds and try again.
  6. If steps (a)thru (e) fail, disconnect your PC from all Wi-Fi networks. Attach an Ethernet cable between the Range Extender and your PC. Try to access http://setup.ampedwireless.comagain.
  1. Your Home Network may be secured. Double check that you have the correct security key to connect to the Home Network.
  2. Your Range Extender may be located too far from your Home Network. Run through the Setup Wizard again. On the SCAN page, your Home Network should show a signal strength of 70% or greater. If it does not, move the Range Extender closer to your Home Network and try again.
  3. Check to see that your Home Network router’s DHCP server is enabled. The Range Extender needs to obtain an IP from your Home Network router.
  1. The Range Extender may be out of range. Move the Range Extender closer towards the Wi-Fi router and try the Wizard again from the Web Menu. It is recommended that your Home Network shows a signal strength of 70% or greater in the Wizard SCAN results.
  2. The Home Network may be a dual band Wi-Fi router. The Range Extender supports 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz routers. If your Home Network uses a dual-band router, it will not work with the Range Extender. Adjust the dual-band router’s configuration to disable the 5GHz band.
  3. Go to the Smart Features tab in the web menu and access the Wi-Fi Coverage Controls. Make sure the setting is at 100% and try again.
  4. Make sure that your Home Network’s Wi-Fi SSID is broadcasting and not hidden. If your Home Network SSID is hidden, you will need to manually setup the Range Extender through the Wi-Fi Settings > Home Network Settings menu.
  1. The connection to your Home Network has been dropped. This can be caused by several events to your home Wi-Fi connection. When this occurs, simply run the Wizard again from the web menu and reconfigure the Range Extender.
  2. The Range Extender automatically reconfigures itself in the event of a channel change on your router. However, in the case that it does not, check to see that your home Wi-Fi router settings have not changed. Any changes to the SSID, security, or channel number from the original settings will disconnect the Range Extender’s connection to the home network. A power outage can cause a change in the channel of your router. To solve this simply run the Wizard again from the web menu and reconfigure your Home Network connection. You can also set a static channel number on your router to prevent this from happening again in the future.
  3. If you cannot access the web menu, check to see that your Range Extender is still on. Reboot the Range Extender by unplugging the Range Extender and plugging it back in. Check to see if your connection has been reestablished by viewing a website. If you do not have a connection, logon to http://setup.ampedwireless.com and configure a new Home Network connection.
  4. Check to see that your home Wi-Fi router is still on. If it has been turned off please turn it back on. The Range Extender should automatically reconnect to your Home Network within 10 minutes.
  1. Log into the Web Menu for your dual-band wireless router and adjust the wireless settings. Change the wireless band to 2.4GHz single band mode only. The Range Extender will not be able to extend the 5GHz band.
  1. The Range Extender may be out of range. Move the Range Extender closer towards the Wi-Fi router and try the Setup Wizard again from the Web Menu.
  2. The antenna on your Range Extender may be loose. Tighten the antenna connection and try again.
  3. The Wi-Fi Home Network may not be a compatible Wi-Fi network (802.11b/g/n).
  1. The Home Network itself may not have Internet access. Check to see that you have internet access by connecting directly to the Home Network first. If you are able to go online then this is not a problem. If you cannot go online, then the Home Network’s Internet connection must first be resolved.
  2. You may have a DNS issue and the Range Extender is not obtaining the IP settings from your Home Network. Try to reboot the Range Extender and then accessing a website. If that fails, then reboot the Home Router to see if that fixes it.
  3. There may be an IP conflict with your Home Network and your Extended Network. Try to adjust the IP Settings of your Extended Network using IP values that are different from your Home Network.
  1. Power on and off the Range Extender and try again.
  2. The connection to the Home Network may be down. Use an Ethernet cable and connect directly to the Range Extender. Access http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard again. After you have successfully reset the Home Network connection, try connecting wirelessly again.
  1. Check that your Wi-Fi adapter supports WPA2 Wi-Fi security. If it does not then you will need to change the Wi-Fi security on the Range Extender. Go to the Web Menu, select Wi-Fi Settings and then Wi-Fi Security. Select the Extended Network from the drop down menu and either disable security or downgrade the security to WEP. Try connecting again.
  2. The connection to the Home Network may be down. Use an Ethernet cable and connect directly to the Range Extender. Access http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard again. After you have successfully reset the Home Network connection, try connecting wirelessly again.
  3. If you have previously connected to the Range Extender or a device with the same network name (SSID), the password might be saved in your devices Wi-Fi profile. Delete the Wi-Fi
    profile and try again. (Refer to your device Manufacturers guide on how to delete the Wi-Fi profile.)
  1. Connect to your Range Extender and try to access http://setup.ampedwireless.com using your web browser.
  2. If you are advanced in networking troubleshooting, log onto your home router’s web interface. Look for the DHCP client list and try to find the IP address of your Range Extender assigned by your home router. Once you have it, connect to the Range Extender using an Ethernet cable. Open your web browser and enter the IP address into the address bar.
  3. Reset the Range Extender back to default settings and try the Wizard again. To reset the Range Extender back to default settings, push the Reset Button (on the back panel) down for five (5) to ten (10) seconds then let go. After the Range Extender has fully reset, use an Ethernet cable and connect to the Range Extender. Login to the Web Menu at http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Wizard.
  1. You may be too far away from your Home Network. The closer the Range Extender is to your Home Network, the better its connection will be. The Range Extender must have a strong signal in order to extend the signal with fast speeds and further range. Move the Range Extender closer to your Home Network and try again.
  2. You may be downloading from the Internet and not within your Home Network or Extended Network. Files transferred through the Internet are limited by your ISP speed and the data download speeds from the website that you are downloading from.
  3. Your computer may be using an older Wi-Fi adapter with lower speed limits (802.11b/g).
  1. Check to see that your Wi-Fi output settings are at 100%. Go to the Web Menu, Wi-Fi Settings and check the Advanced Settings. Make sure the output power is at 100%.
  2. Your Range Extender may be installed in a poor location. Avoid setting up your Range Extender in areas with high interference, such as near refrigerators, microwaves, metallic objects and low surfaces. Install the Range Extender in a higher location if possible.
  3. Check the connections of the Antennas to the Range Extender. Tighten them if necessary.
  4. Adjust the Antennas of the Range Extender in different angles
  1. You need to adjust your Time Zone Settings from the Management Web Menu page.
  1. The Range Extender supports WPS connections, however, some companies may use proprietary code for their own push-button configurations. Try connecting using the Windows wireless utility or Mac wireless utility instead.
