Belkin dual band wifi range extender will not install

September 28, 2016 at 19:47:18
Specs: Windows 10
I can not install my Belkin range extender modelF9K1106. I tried everything including the directions from there disc. I tried the 192.168.2.1 Nothing works. I even disabled my firewall and, my add blocker, freed up all the memory and caches. Still nothing. I have a new computer with windows 10. HELP IS WHAT I NEED.

I have also shut down my whole system and the Belkin extender. Waited 5 minutes started everything and hooked up the belkin powered up and I get the alternating amber and blue light. Belikin support is an outside source in India they are not good people.

Your Instructions, troubleshooting, and even the download for the full manual here:

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Does this recent discussion help:

Did your wifi previously work (at a moderate range)? Maybe it's a router or computer problem and not the extender.

Edit I'm not saying this will help but it looks like there's a firmware update here:

Check your hardware version first as you may already have it.

Seems like it ought to be working then. You might check the user guide for the new router to see if there's something you're not doing right or maybe some incompatibility with the extender.

Dave thank you for trying. I do appreciate it. I am stumped for the moment.. I am almost ready to give up and throw the darn thing in the garbage. I actually got it to do something on that 198 and it gave me several options but they all brought me to on outside vender for Belkin and they want money to help. They are in India.

Go through your modem (192.168.0.1) and see if it is receiving an IP. Your new ATT modem may use a different band. Just like Dave said they may be incompatible. Just how b/g network cards couldn't pickup the AC signal. I would update your firmware 1st as Dave suggested. If you have another router that works with you new modem see if you can connect the extender to that router. Anything that connects to your modem/router would have an IP of {192.168.0.(2-254)} If you can pull up the DCHP client list in your modem then you will see if it connecting. You new modem's firewall may not recognize the signal letting it through. Have you tried to connect directly from your Win10 computer to the extender itself? The default address 192.168.2.1 of the extender will not work if your computer cannot communicate with it at all.

I don't need to be right, but I am never wrong.

You're welcome. I guess we can chalk it up to gremlins in the system.
