Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have to have anything connected to the extender other than power supply to extend the signal?
There is nothing else attached to the unit...it's a completely stand alone device. The only exception is if you have something plugged into one or both of the USB ports (i.e. external hard drive, printer, etc.) or if you have a computer "hard wired" to one of the 5 gigaports on the back of it. None of the previously mentioned devices are required to extend the signal.
Can I use the same SSID as my main WiFi, or do I need to use a different SSID to use this?
It uses the same ssid, however after the extender it has ext behind it, and you have to reconnect devices under the extender. So depending on which is stronger at different points of range, is the one you would connect to. It uses the same password for all of them. It has 2.4 and 5 GHz, so essentially you would have 4 different ssid under the same password. One for each 2.4 and 5 from router and one each 2.4 and 5 from the extender. So to answer you question you would use a different one than your WiFi. If your router is say belkin123 the to connect to extender would be belkin123_ext.
