Installation Steps for DLink N300 WiFi Range Extender:

You can setup DLink N300 wifi range extender in three ways namely:

  • WI-FI Protected Setup (WPS) [recommended]
  • Using the QRS Mobile App
  • Using a web browser

1) WI-FI Protected Setup (WPS)

Before extending your Wi-fi network ensure that a WPS button is present on your source router or AP.

1. Plug the DAP-1520 into a wall outlet under the range of the wireless router. Wait until the WPS LED starts blinking.

2. Push the WPS button on the source router(or AP) and then on the DAP-1520. The WPS LED will blink green.

  • It will take around two minutes for the process to end. As the Status/WPS LED will turn solid green, it means that DAP-1520 has successfully connected to the source wireless router or AP.
  • A single amber bar in LED signal indicates that the wi-fi extender connection is of poor quality. You can improve the connection quality by relocating the DAP-1520 to a wall outlet more closer to the source wireless router or AP. More LED light bars indicate a better quality signal.
  • Now, the DAP-1520/DAP-1330 extended network is ready to be accessed via mobile devices and PCs. You can connect to this extension network following the network name(SSID) along with the router's usual password.

2) Using the QRS Mobile App
