Questions You May Have
To setup the Rockspace wifi extender, you must have:
- An existing Rockspace Wi-Fi router. This can be a mobile unit or the stationary device that was provided at the time of purchase. If you’re unsure which type of router you have, please contact our support team for assistance!
- The Rock Space Extender in hand (make sure it’s fully charged) and ready to go!
- A USB cable to connect both devices together
- An internet connection (wired or wireless)
- Connect the extender to the power source
- Connect the extender to the internet
- Connect the extender to the router
- Connect your computer/laptop and mobile devices (i.e., tablet) to this network
To set up your extender, you will need to know the password used for accessing its login page. The password is case-sensitive and consists of a combination of letters and numbers. It is not the same as your home router’s password or any other passwords you may have set up in the past.
To access the login page of your Rockspace Wi-Fi range extender, you can use the default IP address. The default IP address is 192.168.0.1 and it will be displayed on a sticker at the bottom of your Rockspace wireless range extender. To access the login page, open any web browser on your computer or mobile device, type in http://192.168.0.1 and press Enter key on your keyboard to navigate to the login page where you need to enter username ‘admin’ and password ‘admin’ to log in into it successfully
Yes, you should change the default username & password of your Rockspace range extender. You can change the username and password from the extender login page. If you do not want to change it, then you can use the default username and password for your device as well.
This depends on the nature of your Wi-Fi network. You can configure a range extender with WPA2 encryption, which is the most secure available in today’s market. If you do not want to use WPA2, you can opt for WEP or even no security at all.
- Set Password
- Set Password Hint
- Use Strong Passwords – A strong password has a minimum of 12 characters but it is recommended to use an even stronger password with at least 8 characters.
You can use your wireless devices to connect the extended network connection by following the steps below:
- Connect your device to the extender’s SSID. The SSID is a unique identifier for each access point. If you have Home1 and Home2, then each has its own SSID as well as password.
- To connect a device running Windows 10 or 8, open Network and Sharing Center from Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center on your computer, click Manage Wi-Fi settings in left pane, click Add under “Other Devices” section on right pane then follow instructions on How do I add my Extender? page for Windows 10/8 respectively. For more details about connecting devices with different OSes (if needed), refer to How do I configure my Extenders? page of this article.
If you need to reset or reboot the Rockspace wifi range extender, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the reset button on the back of your Rockspace extender for 5 seconds.
- Keep holding this button until all four LED lights start flashing.
- Once all four LEDs stop flashing, release it and wait for about 30 seconds for your Rockspace wifi range extender to reboot.
- After that, it will automatically connect with your router again.
A Rockspace Range Extender is an accessory that extends the range of your current Rockspace setup. This means you can set up a single Rockspace in your home, and then use an extension to increase its range without having to purchase another device. The extender will connect directly with your existing Rockspace and act as if it were another room’s sensor. You can place multiple extenders around the house if necessary, allowing multiple rooms to be monitored at once!
Using a rockspace range extender will save you money on purchasing additional units, since each one works just like any other unit already connected to your network (with he same functionality). Additionally, by extending coverage area over multiple floors or rooms in your home (or business), this accessory allows for more flexibility in installation locations which may be otherwise limited due to distance limitations between devices themselves.”
Yes, you can setup multiple range extenders of the same type in your home. Since all Rockspace extenders are dual band and support 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks, you can setup multiple extenders of the same type in a room to boost coverage for both bands. However, we do not recommend mixing different types of range extenders together unless you have more than one room that needs boosted coverage for each band. For example, if one room requires solid coverage for 2.4GHz networks but another requires solid coverage for 5GHz networks then it would be better to place one Rockspace AC1200+ and one Rockspace AC1750+ in those respective rooms instead of mixing them together into a single location where neither frequency is being boosted properly
