In the following paragraphs, I’ll show you how to set up your Atomi Wi-Fi Range Extender in minutes. Sounds like you? Then let’s head right into it!
Atomi Wi-Fi Range Extender Setup Instructions
So here are the steps to follow to set up your Atomi Wi-Fi Extender:
1. Plug Your Wi-Fi extender into an Outlet
First off, you need to plug the device into an outlet and ensure it has received power. Check to see if the two lights on the extender are up. If not, it means the device hasn’t received power.
If this is the case with your extender, find the reset button on the bottom of the device and then use a paper clip/pin to press it down for about 10 to 15 seconds. The lights should come up now. Proceed to the next step.
2. Connect Your Extender SSID
Open W-Fi Settings on your mobile phone and connect your extender’s SSID. Here, you will notice two different network bands there; the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz bands. Choose the 5GHz band to set up the Atomi Wi-Fi Range Extender.
Note that you cannot access the internet until the setup is complete.
3. Sign in to the Management Page
Open a webpage on your phone’s browser and type in 192.168.188.1 on the URL bar to access the management page (you can use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browsers). Next, enter the default password (admin) to log in.
4. Scan and Select Your SSID Host Router
Make sure you are connected to your extender SSID. Then scan and select the SSID of your host router. Now, enter the password of the host router and tap Next.
5. Set SSID and Password for Your Extender
A new page will pop up, prompting you to enter the SSID and password of your extender. Do that and click Next. Note that you can change the default network name and password.
6. Confirm Details
Another page will pop up for you to confirm if the details you have entered are correct. Carefully check the information you have provided, and then click Start Connect once you are sure everything is okay. Now, wait for some seconds—around 30-60 seconds.
7. Setup is Complete
After waiting for about 30-60 seconds, the third light on the extender will turn on, indicating that the setup was successful. You can now connect to your Wi-Fi extender and enjoy a strong network in every corner of your home/office!
How do I reset the Atomi Wi-Fi extender?
Here’s how to reset your Atomi Wi-Fi Range Extender:
- Plug the device into an outlet.
- Get a paper clip or pin.
- With the paper clip or pin, press and hold the Reset button (located on the bottom of the device) for about 8-15 seconds and then release it.
- The first two lights on the extender will illuminate, showing the reset is successful.
Why can’t I connect to my Wi-Fi network?
Ensure you entered the correct SSID and password of your host router during the setup. More so, check if there are any problems with your internet connection. If the Wi-Fi signal is weak, reset the router and try again.
So that’s it. As you can see, setting up the Atomi Wi-Fi Range Extender is simple as long as you follow the setup process correctly.
What’s more, you can now enjoy a strong Wi-Fi connection in every corner of your home/office. Of course, the device works by catching your Wi-Fi signal, boosts it, and then redistributes the amplified signal. That means you can now say goodbye to dead zones in your home/office.
