  4. Create your account. This is used to log in and change settings on your Wi-Fi Range Extender in the future. When you're done filling this out, select Next.

    This password has nothing to do with your Wi-Fi connectivity, it's only used to manage the Range Extender in the future. Choose one that is easy for you to remember, but hard for others to guess.

  5. Your Extender can be used as an Access Point; connected with an Ethernet cable that's run a long distance to your router. We're setting up as a range extender, without an extra Ethernet cable. Select WiFi Range Extender.

  7. Enter your Wi-Fi password for your router's network for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, then select Next.

    These are the passwords you'd normally use to connect to your home Wi-Fi connection.

  8. You'll be asked to name your extended networks, and give them passwords. These are the names you'll see when you connect to the range extender, and the password you'll use. Once setup as you want, select Next.

    By default, the extender will add _EXT, _2GEXT, or _5GEXT to the end, and use the same password as your router's Wi-Fi. These are perfectly fine choices!

  9. Your range extender will reboot with the new settings in place.
