Connect a PC to the Extender with an Ethernet Cable
Usually, you connect to the Extender wirelessly, but you can use its LAN port to connect a wired device such as an Ethernet-enabled gaming console, printer, or PC.
Note: Before you connect wired devices or computers, first install and set up your Extender as described in the Universal WiFi Extender WN3000RP Installation Guide that came in the package.
1. Connect your computer to the Extender with an Ethernet cable.
2. Plug the Extender into an electrical outlet.
Do not use Ethernet cable to connect the Extender to a router. If you do so, the Extender does not work because it is designed to use only a wireless connection to the router.
3. Log in as described in the following section.
If you have trouble connecting:
• If you start your computer, connect the Ethernet cable to the Extender, and launch your browser quickly, the computer might still need a couple of minutes to recognize the Ethernet LAN connection before you can connect.
• Make sure that your Ethernet cable is securely connected to the Extender and the computer, and that the Extender LAN LED is on. If the LED is not lit reconnect the Ethernet cable, and relaunch your Internet browser.

If you have trouble connecting, try to locate the source of the problem:
• For help with passwords, see Log In to the Extender on page 8.
• If your browser displays an error page, make sure that you include http:// when you type this URL in the address field of your Internet browser. If you leave it out, you might not be able to connect.
• The Extender LEDs can help you tell if the extender is correctly set up and working as it should.

- The best performance is delivered when both the Link Rate LED ￼ and the PC to Extender Connection LED ￼ are green.

If you cannot get a wireless connection working, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the Extender. See Connect a PC to the Extender with an Ethernet Cable on page 8.
