Unable to extend wireless from D Link 885L/R
« on: June 11, 2017, 06:13:36 AM »

I got a dlink extender to try to have an easy set up with the WPS feature. Never worked

Finally got the extender to work for 2 days before it cut out twice and then permanently. If I connect to it via Ethernet to the router it works but it cannot receive a connection with the router wirelessly any longer no matter how many hard resets I do. It can set up with the wireless network but there's always a red X and askin me tonrepair the connection. I tried playing with other settings but I'm not too knowledgeable on networking so if any one has any suggestions on how to set up this extender it would be helpful. It's is currently not even functional unless I run a cable,l which defeats the whole purpose of this extender for me.

How are the two devices configured to for their wireless settings? G/N? N only? Channel? A extender doesn't "connect" to the router, it repeats the signal coming from it. Also, have you tried to manually connect it instead of WPS? See page 24-27 of manual for instructions.

If the router is set to different wireless setting it won't repeat correctly. Can you give more info on how your network is configured? Modem > router > Repeater?
