Kamil Anwar :

Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you.

Kamil Anwar :

According to the device's instructions, when it blinks amber, you should use WPS to pair the extender with a router.

Kamil Anwar :

Do you have the WPS button on your router?

Customer:

no

Kamil Anwar :

What is the model number for the router?

Customer:

it is a Bigpond 7.2 Home Network Gateway

Kamil Anwar :

We will need to link the extender manually to N300

Customer:

How do I do that?

Kamil Anwar :

For that, you will need to connect to the DAP-1320 WIFI

Kamil Anwar :

Then open http://dlinkap3fa4.local

Kamil Anwar :

Do you have access to another computer that can connect wirelessly

Customer:

I have an iPad 2

Kamil Anwar :

Okay great.

Kamil Anwar :

Kamil Anwar :

So we can connect to D-link and perform steps.

Kamil Anwar :
