What if my wireless range extenders aren’t working?

To get optimal performance, ensure that the DHCP server is properly configured, and that each extender/repeater is set up as an access point that does not overlap with the Wi-Fi channel. Information on these settings can be found in the owner’s manual of your router, or their online support tools.
The most common issue with wireless range extenders is that they are not hard wired. If your wireless range extenders are connected wirelessly you must position them in a location where the wireless to the main router is strong. If you can add a hardwire option it is best to do so. Network over powerline to reach inaccessible areas is another option.
