  2. Make sure your computer is connected to the Smart Repeater using the included Ethernet cable. Do not try to connect with a wireless connection. Ensure that the power on the Smart Repeater is on.
  3. Try to use a different web browser. We recommend the Google Chrome web browser.
  4. Try to open your web browser to the default IP address by putting this number into your web browser instead: 192.168.1.240
  5. Make sure your network adapter is set to automatically obtain an IP
  6. Power off (unplug the power adapter) the Smart Repeater and power it back on. Try again.
  7. Reset your Smart Repeater to default settings by holding the Reset Button (located on the back panel) for ten (10) seconds and try again.
  1. Your Home Network may be secured. Double check that you have the correct security key to connect to the Home Network.
  2. Try adjusting the channel number of your Home Network's router to channel 5 thru 11. Then attempt the Smart Setup Wizard again.
  3. Check to see that your Home Network router's DHCP server is enabled. The Smart Repeater needs to obtain an IP from your Home Network router.
  1. The Smart Repeater may be out of range. Move the Smart Repeater closer towards the wireless router and try the Setup Wizard again from the Web Menu.
  2. The Home Network may be a dual band wireless router. The Smart Repeater supports 802.11b/g/n 2.4GHz routers. If your Home Network uses a dual-band router, it will not work with the Smart Repeater. 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 Wireless Coverage Controls. Make sure the setting is at 100% and try again.
  4. Make sure that your Home Network's wireless SSID is broadcasting and not hidden.
  1. The connection to your Home Network has been dropped. This can be caused by several events to your home wireless connection. When this occurs you may rescan for another network by accessing http://setup.ampedwireless.com to connect to and repeat or you may try to fix the issues with your Home Network and your home wireless router.
  2. If you cannot access the setup menu, check to see that your Smart Repeater is still on. Reboot the Smart Repeater by unplugging the power adapter 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.
  3. Check to see that your home wireless router is still on. If it has been turned off please turn it back on. The Smart Repeater should automatically reconnect to your Home Network within 10 minutes.
  4. Check to see that your home wireless router settings have not changed. Any changes to the SSID, security, or channel number from the original settings will disconnect the Smart Repeater's connection to the home network. If you are not sure which settings have been changed, simply run the Smart Setup Wizard again from the web menu and reconfigure your Home Network connection.
  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. Disable the 5GHz wireless band

  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 Smart Repeater is not obtaining the IP settings from your Home Network. Try to reboot the Smart Repeater and then accessing a website. If that fails, then reboot the Home Router to see if that fixes it.

Go to the Web Menu, select Wireless Settings and then Wireless 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 Smart Repeater. Access http://setup.ampedwireless.com and run through the Smart Setup Wizard again. After you have successfully reset the Home Network connection, try connecting wirelessly again.
