Video: COSMOTE Hints & Tips – ΤP-Link Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200
Are you tired of standing next to the router in order to get signal? Don’t you have strong signal everywhere in your home? TP-Link Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200 has come to the rescue. It is a signal enhancer, that provides you with excellent Wi-Fi coverage everywhere in your house. So, even in your bedroom, you can enjoy your favorite movie without having to stand next to the router. In this video we will see how to connect the Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200 and set it up. For wireless pairing, we place the WiFi extender in a socket. We press the WPS button on the COSMOTE router and then on the WiFi Extender.
When the leds on the adapter are stabilized, it is ready for use. If the router does not have a WPS button, then the router / adapter pairing must be done manually. We connect the adapter with an Ethernet cable to our pc/laptop, reassuring that it is disconnected from any other internet network. On a browser we type : http://tplinkrepeater.net or http://192.168.0.254 We enter as a username and password the word “admin”. We will be promptly asked to set new credentials to enter the homepage. Then, we follow the instructions on the website to complete the settings. On the screen with the available WiFi networks, we choose our home network, we enter our home WiFi password and we click on next. On the next screen we can change the WiFi network name of the adapter, if we like. The WiFi password remains the same as the one of our home network. We select Next and then Finish. The device will restart and once restarted, the leds will be stabilized indicating the signal strength.
For better signal quality, we place the adapter at about half the distance between the router and the space where we want to have WiFi coverage. We connect our device to the extender using the network name (SSID) and the Wi-Fi password we have set during the initial settings. The default Wi-Fi pasword is the same as the original network. TP-Link Wi-Fi Range Extender RE200 has the ability to wirelessly connect to 2,4GHz and 5GHz band that allows easier connection of devices over Wi-Fi, delivering high speeds up to 750Mbps. Furthermore, it has an Ethernet port to connect wired devices that are not able to do so over Wi-Fi network, such as a Blu-ray player, gaming concole, DVR or smart TV.
