NOTE: Depending on the wireless devices you're using, the troubleshooting steps and images can differ.
Step 1: Connect your range extender to a power outlet within your router's wireless network range.
Step 2: Locate and connect to the Belkin. Setup network using your Wi-Fi-capable computer.
NOTE: If you can't see this network, the range extender may need to be reset. Push the reset button on the range extender for at least 10 seconds when switched on to accomplish this. Connect to the network after powering down the range extender.
Before moving on to the next step, make sure your computer is connected to the Belkin. Setup network.

Step 6: Enter your wireless network's password when asked, then tap Next. Wait for your password to be authenticated by the setup.
Step 7: If you have a dual-band network, repeat Step 6 for the second wireless network you choose to extend. When you're done, tap Next.
