    43  N300 WiF Range Extender
    This section provides answers for difficulties you might experience with the extender.
    The web browser setup keeps asking me for my network password (passphrase) or 
    security key, and I am sure that I entered the correct password. What can I do?
    The extender is probably placed at the borderline of the range covered by the router or 
    access point. For more information about where to place the extender, see 
    Connect an 
    Ethernet-Enabled Device on page 14.
    If you are using WEP security, make sure that you are typing the network password in the 
    correct field.
    Can I set up the extender in extender mode if I connect it to the router or access point 
    with an Ethernet cable?
    No. The extender is designed to use WiFi to connect to the router or access point if it is in 
    extender mode. If the extender is in access point mode, you can connect it to the router or 
    access point with an Ethernet connection. For more information about access point mode, 
    Use the Extender in Access Point Mode on page 15.
    I forgot my login email address and password. What can I do?
    In the login window, click the Username & Password Help link to answer the security 
    questions that you set up during the initial setup. For more information, see 
    Recover a 
    Forgotten User Name or Password on page 34.
    If you forgot your password and the answers to your security questions, you can restore the 
    extender to its factory settings and set it up again.
    To restore factory settings:
    1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or paper clip to press and hold the Factory Reset 
    button on the extender for at least seven seconds until the Power LED lights amber.
    2. Release the Factory Reset button and wait for the extender to reboot.
    The extender resets and returns to the factory default settings.
    Cannot Connect to the Extender
    If you cannot connect to the extender, determine what prevents you from connecting:
    •If you forgot your user name or password, click the Username & Password Help link. 
    For more information, see 
    FAQs on page 43.
    •If your browser displays an error page, include http:// in the address field of your browser 
    by typing http://www.mywifiext.net.
    •If you already set up the extender but can no longer connect to it over WiFi, check to see 
    if the Client Link LED is off or red.

    •If you cannot get a WiFi connection working, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect 
    your computer to the extender. 
    Cannot Join a WiFi Network and Receive an Error Message
    To join a WiFi network, you must know its network name (also called the SSID) so that you 
    can select it. If the network is secure, you must know the passphrase or key. If the extender 
    does not connect to the network that you select, the cause might be one of the following:
    •It is possible that you typed the network name, passphrase, or key incorrectly. Use Smart 
    Setup (see 
    Run Smart Setup Installation on page 17) to select a WiFi network and retype 
    the passphrase or key. The passphrase or key is case-sensitive. For example, 
    PASSWORD25 is not the same as Password25 or password25.
    •If the extender cannot detect your WiFi network, check to see if your WiFi network is still 
    working. Make sure that the WiFi router is turned on. If possible, move the extender 
    closer to the WiFi router. 
    •If the extender Client Link LED is red, the WiFi connection between the WiFi router and 
    the extender is poor. You can establish the best connection with a clear line of sight 
    between the extender and the WiFi router. Make sure that no physical obstacles exist 
    between the extender and the WiFi router, and try to move the extender closer to the WiFi 
    If you use Smart Setup, and the extender does not connect to the WiFi router, does not 
    connect to the Internet, or cannot get an IP address from the WiFi router, Smart Setup 
    displays a message to notify you that the extender is not configured.
    To run Smart Setup again, click the YES button. To manually configure the extender, click the
