Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my LTE extender is working?

With Advanced Calling switched on, you can verify your Verizon phones are connected to the LTE Network Extender: 1. Dial #48 from your mobile phone 2. You should hear the following confirmation: “You are under LTE Network Extender coverage” 3. Some phones may show a home icon when connected to the LTE Network Extender.

How do you use a wireless extender?

Just position the range extender at the halfway point between the router and the area you want to cover. For maximum coverage, place two range extenders on either side of your router and triple the reach of your home WiFi network, improving performance and network coverage.

How can I increase my LTE strength?

Use the Right Antenna. Outdoor antennas are key for a good indoor signal. They connect to your router or signal booster to get the best possible 5G or 4G signal inside to the inside device. If you are in an area where the signal is weak, having a good donor antenna can improve both signal strength and signal quality.

Why is my extender connected but no Internet?

If you are connected to a wireless network of a repeater and you get the error WiFi connected but no Internet, then most likely the network connection between the repeater and your router is lost. Try to reset your repeater, or move the base station closer to your router.

Why is the red light on my Wi-Fi extender?

Red (slow blink): Your extender has lost connection or couldn’t connect through Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Check for a loose or damaged Ethernet connection, then press the red reset button.

Do Internet extenders stop working?

Wi-Fi extenders can stop working for many reasons, but heat is the number one reason they break down.

What is the difference between a network extender and a signal booster?

In reality, these two terms refer to the same type of device: hardware that is designed to improve the coverage of a WiFi network. However, different manufacturers may use the terms “booster” and “extender” interchangeably, making it difficult to determine the specific meaning of each term.

Do WiFi extenders work with any router?

However, that is not a hard and fast rule. Most extenders should be able to work with any router—you just want to make sure the extender supports 802.11n if you have an 802.11n router. If you have an older b/g router, an 802.11n extender should work also, but may not work as well.

Which is better Wi-Fi extender or repeater?

WiFi Network Extenders are the best WiFi boosters for consistent, reliable high speed WiFi to every floor and corner of your home. Unlike repeaters or range extenders that rebroadcast existing WiFi signals, ScreenBeam’s WiFi Network Extenders communicate directly with your gateway or WiFi router using a wire.
