How to set up the TP Link WLAN repeater using WPSIf you only have a weak WLAN signal in some rooms of your apartment or house, using a WLAN repeater can help. This amplifies the WLAN signal and then forwards it. Before using a repeater, however, it is necessary to set it up.
- If you have a TP Link brand WLAN repeater, first connect it to a power outlet near the router.
- Then wait until the repeater has booted up and press the WPS button on the router for three seconds.
- Press the WPS button on the repeater as well, so that the router and repeater can exchange the necessary access data.
- Once the data exchange is complete, place the repeater in a location where the router's wireless signal is still strong enough.
