NOTE: For steps 19 to 21, we suggest to verify your wireless security settings from the main router to match this security settings correctly with your Xtender300 wireless settings. If you don't know this information, you need to access the main router if this is one of ours routers Nexxt Solutions. If you are going to extend the wireless signal from the router of your ISP you will need to contact them and ask the security type.

 
19.  In “Security Mode” choose the same wireless security you have in the main modem .

NOTE: Some ISP use WEP as security mode for the router. If this is the case, you will use SHARED in the "Security Mode", in the security wep key 1 you will add the password of your main modem, and if this password use NUMBERS and LETTERS use the code HEX instead of ACSII.

 
20. If you choose the security type "WPA-PSK" ( For example ), in the algorithm choose the option "AES". If you choose (Mixed WPA/WPA2 – PSK), then choose in the WPA Encryption Key Type choose agian TKIP&AES. Remember this need to be the same security type in order to work. 

21.  In “Security Key” type the same password you have in your main modem.
 

 
22.  Press “Apply” to save changes. Your router will reboot to apply changes.

23. 
After reboot, we suggest to recover your Local Area Connection settings on your PC to check if Internet comes up on the Xtender. This can be done following steps 3 to 7, with the difference that on step 6, select "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" on IP address and DDNS address. Then press "OK" and then "Close" to save changes.

24. After this step, and without disconnecting the Ethernet cable between PC and Xtender 300, open a web browser and check if you can browse the internet. If yes, you will be able to connect via wireless and browse in the internet using this Xtender300 as well, using your wireless main SSID and password.
