Fix a problem with your Wi-Fi Extender Kit

No ratings

Having trouble with your Wi-Fi Extender Kit? Choose your issue from the options below and follow the steps for your router. The way you've set them up can also affect their performance, so make sure you check the following:

  • Unplug any Powerline Adapters, Wi-Fi Repeaters, Extenders or whole-home mesh Wi-Fi solutions you're currently using.
  • Plug your Wi-Fi Extender and Network Connector directly into your wall sockets. Extensions, surge protectors and three-way plug adapters can stop them from working properly.
  • Don’t plug your Wi-Fi Extender in near household appliances that use a lot of power, like your washing machine or fridge.
  • Avoid charging devices like your mobile phone next to your Wi-Fi Extender.
  • Keep your Network Connector and Wi-Fi Extender switched on at all times to get the latest updates.

Follow the steps for your router below.
