How to perform the Amped AC 1900 extender setup?
The Amped AC1900 extender setup process should be the first priority if you seek to access and configure some advanced settings and features of the extender. We will discuss the setup and login process in detail within this article.
Location for setup
The setup location is among the key aspects that affect the range extender’s performance. The best site for the setup is to be not more than halfway between your router and your dead wifi zone.
- Connect the antennas and attach either your OC device to range extenders
- Now, connect the high-gain antennas by fixing them to an antenna’s connectors.
- Plugin the range extender into an electrical outlet with power.
- Connect your PC or tablet to the range extender’s wifi network: Amped_TitanEX_2.4 Amped_TitanEX_5.0Access.
Accessing the web-interface
- Use any compatible browser.
- Enter the default gateway setup.ampedwireless.com in the address bar of the browser.
- If the menu for the web isn’t opening If the menu does not open, enter this IP address in the address field: http://192.168.1.240.
- You can access the setup wizard now and configure the extender.
Welcome to the Dashboard.
The Dashboard will show you the current status of your range extender. Select scan to locate an open network that can be extended.
Check for wireless networks.
- The scan results will show all 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz wireless networks detected by the range extender, including the name of each network SSID, working channel and the kind of security, and the signal strength.
- If you’re expanding an existing dual-band router, you’ll have to select the SSID for your 2.4GHz network and the SSID for that 5.0GHz network.
- The signal strength is how wirelessly connected the network and the extender is. It is crucial to select networks with a signal strength higher than 70 percent. A wireless network with an average signal strength of lower than 70% could result in a weak connection resulting in slower and sometimes disconnected connections.
- You can move your range extender further away from the network you want to scan and scan it again.
- After you have chosen your wireless network, then click Next to proceed. If you’re connected to one wireless network, you can select the 2.4GHz or 5.0GHz network and press Next.
Connecting to a secure network
- When the network you’re trying to replicate is secured by wireless, you will be asked to input a security password.
- If you’re repeating dual-band routers, you’ll have to input the security password to both 2.4GHz and that of the 5.0GHz network. If one network doesn’t have security, you can leave the fields empty.
- Once you’ve entered the security code, Click Next to proceed.
- If you don’t know the password to the network you’re trying to replicate, choose another network.
Extended Network Settings(SSID and Security)
- The default SSID for the extender’s range is Amped_TitanEX_2.4 or Amped_titanEX_5.0.
- Suppose you decide to copy the settings of your home network. In that case, The Wizard will replicate the SSID and the security key for the Home network.
- The SSID for the extender network is likely to have an _RE at the end of the name.
- You may also manually enter the new network ID and security code. The new security key should be eight characters in length.
- Don’t leave or refresh the page and check the connection.
Connect to the extended network
- The range extender will restart and shut off the wifi connection during the countdown timer. Connect your tablet or PC to the new network. Follow the steps in the display to join the network extension.
- After connecting to the Internet, press the check and confirm. A Next option will be displayed, which will allow you to finish the setup procedure.
- If there are any configuration issues, the wizard will alert you that you need to rescan the network and extend it.
- If there is no issue, you can view the setup summary on the next page.
Summary of Setup
- The range extender has been configured in the end. The settings have been saved.
- Print the summary of setup details to save for future information.
- You can do it right now if you have wired devices you’d like to join to the range extender.
- If you’ve not yet put your range extender in the optimal spot, you could start now. The range extender’s settings are now saved. It is safe to switch it off to allow for relocation.
- A Signal Strength LED can help you determine the ideal spot. It could take up a few minutes for the light to blink after powering upon the extender. The signal strength is suggested to be at least 70% when green.
Wired port Routing
The Setup wizard automatically chooses your Home network(2.4GHz and 5GHz). If you want to alter these settings, you can make the changes through the web menu opening the network settings, and then the Wired port routing.
Suppose the connection to the Home/Office Network does not work. In that case, the page for failed configuration will explain why the connection was unsuccessful. Check out the directions.
- Verify that the security settings for Home networks are in order.
- The SCAN page ensures whether your Home Network shows a 70% or higher signal.
- You can move the range extender closer to the home network router and test another time if you cannot. If you’re connected to a dual-band router, make sure the 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz networks have 70 percent or more signal strength.
- Verify whether the networking’s DHCP server is turned on.
- Try switching the router channel home to a different medium, then start the setup wizard again.
- Connect directly to the router and try accessing the Internet. If that fails, then the issue is the internet connection.
- Make sure to reboot(unplug the power cord from the range extender and then plug it back into) to restart the extender, and then determine if the connection has been made (some networks could be very slow and may take longer than the allotted time to allow the range extender’s to connect successfully).
Common troubleshooting errors
You may encounter some issues while installing or working with the extender. Let us discuss some in detail.
Unable to join the Home Network.
- Your Home Network may be secured. Check to ensure that you have the proper security to connect your Home Network.
- The smart Repeater you are using may be far from your local network. Go through the Setup wizard once again. The SCAN page for the Home Network should show a signal strength of 70% or higher. If it doesn’t, relocate the Smart Repeater further away from your network, attempt again.
- Verify the router of your home network DHCP server is active. The Smart Repeater requires an IP from your home router on your network.
Unable to locate Home Network
- The Smart Repeater may be out of reach. It is suggested you use a home router that displays an RF signal strength of 70 percent or higher.
- Smart Repeater supports 802.11g/g/n 2.4 GHz routers. If the home network is a dual-band router, it won’t work using this Smart Repeater. Change the configuration of the dual-band router to block 5GHz as a band.
