Hi, 

 

I have just brought a WIFI Extender from Vodafone only one unit.

 

I have it plug straigt into the modem via ethernet cable.

 

Only need one WIFI extender unit. But not sure why not working? Mode is on AP

 

I think I need to have it set as access point mode

To add to this. I am using a Vodafone ADSL modem with wifi enabled

 

So I was hoping to just be able to use one WIFI extend to plug in to my modem and then be able to use it.

 

How ever the WIFI light is still showing RED?

Hi @MatthewBootherstone- I haven't had a chance to play around with our Wifi extenders myself, but we have a guide in our help section that might offer some help/insight: Set up your Vodafone Wi-Fi Extender

 

Hope that helps!

We rang tech support they said would be to do with current modem so we upgraded it to the Ultra Hub.

Hi There

 

Sorry about the late reply on this. If you are using it on AP mode and have it connected through the cable you should have the following lights

 

Power - green

LAN -Green

Wifi- red ( when nothing is connected and green when a device is connected)

mode - green

 

Note when you connect a device the light will turn green.

 

Try to use WPS or the password at the bottom of the wifi extender to connect.

 

regards
