@paulcumiskey: Have you followed Connect using WiFi protected setup (WPS) ?

Hi, 

 

Are you outside WiFi range?

 

Have you read the extenders instructions?

 

Thanks

Thanks!
How come nothing tells me that wps is not activated by default.

I'll try that tomorrow, although I seem to have trouble logging onto those 192 etc sites.

Cheers, I'll see how it goes

You look in the router to check if it is.

Thanks XraySpeX, great result! , but why do the instructions not mention that wps is off by default on my router?

Thanks again as I was getting ready to treat my hair out with frustration.

Cheers Xrayspex, got a green light on my wi fi extender now..... But.....

 it doesn't seem to extend the range. It's worse than when I used my plusnet without an extender. Ee was supposed to have the best router but it isnt.

No ISP router is anywhere near the best.
