How to confirm whether my Mercusys range extender is successfully configured and in the best location?

This Article Applies to:

If your range extender is configured correctly according to Quick Start Guide or User Guide, you should have internet access when you connect to it. To confirm whether your range extender is successfully configured with the best signal, try the following methods.


How to confirm whether my range extender is configured successfully?

Method 1: The Signal LED Lights Should be Solid Green or Orange.


Method 2: Your Devices Can Access the Internet

Connect your devices to the extender wirelessly. If your devices can access the internet, your extender is successfully connected to your router.


Method 3: The Internet Status Should be Normal.

1. Launch a web browser, visit and log in with the password you set for the extender.

2. Go to Basic > Status to check the internet status of your extender.


Is my range extender in the proper location?

For better Wi-Fi coverage and signal strength, plug in the extender about halfway between your router and the Wi-Fi dead zone after configuration. The location you choose must be within the range of your router.

The signal LED turns solid orange, which indicates the extender is connected to the router, but too far away from the router. You need to relocate it closer to the router to achieve better signal quality.
