Hello & Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX i will do my best to assist you.
According to the device's instructions, when it blinks amber, you should use WPS to pair the extender with a router.
Do you have the WPS button on your router?
What is the model number for the router?
it is a Bigpond 7.2 Home Network Gateway
We will need to link the extender manually to N300
How do I do that?
For that, you will need to connect to the DAP-1320 WIFI
Then open http://dlinkap3fa4.local
Do you have access to another computer that can connect wirelessly
I have an iPad 2
Can you connect iPad to N300
I have keyed http://dlinkap3fa4.local in the browser on the ipad but it will not connect
Can you tap on Settings -> Wi-Fi on iPad
then tell me what networks is it showing?
Just bigpond8627 ?
Are you nearby N300?
You should also get another network for N300
do you mean the device
Yes, there should be two wireless networks
One should be for the Bigpond Network and One should be for the N300
the dlink-3fa4 shows in my desktop wifi browser but not on the iPad
Are you looking at CHOOSE A NETWORK on iPad?
Can you turn the iPad on/off
done it is off at the moment
Please turn it on again
Please unplug the extender and plug it back in
Can you now see D-link on iPad
It should show on the iPad
Is there any other computer?
where do you mean from other network in wi fi settings?
No, i mean if you have any other computer that has wireless?
So we can connect to D-link and perform steps.
reason being, if i ask you to connect on the computer that you are using to talk to me then you will be disconnected from internet and we wont be able to speak to configure it.
no only my mac desktop and my i pad
Please wait, i'll send you a picture to show where the reset button is
The number 2 is where the reset button is
Can you use a paperclip to press the reset button and keep it held for 10 seconds
It should be powered on while you reset it
It is flashing green constantly
Please check now if it appears on the ipad
Do you see Ask to Join Networks on the iPad?
What is the wireless name on the mac for dlink dap-1320?
You should be able to see it in the airport utility
where should i find that
Should show you the name of the available wireless networks
Can you see that?
I am sending another picture, please wait.
If you click on the wireless icon on the top, then below Turn Wi-Fi Off
What networks do you see?
I could see on the desktop dlink-3FA4 till about 10 minutes ago now i cant see it al or on the ipad
What is the light status on the extender?
at the moment flashing amber
Let's wait 5 minutes and check again if the dlink-3fa4 or a network with the dlink-3* appears again
it is now back showing on the desktop but not the iPad
I will now provide the steps to you which you will need to perform after you connect to dlink.
Step 1:Connect to dlink on your computerStep 2:On Safari, open www.dlinkap.localStep 3:It will ask you for a username and password, the username is XXXXX XXXXX there is no password. So just click on Login.Step 4:Click on Setup (Launch Wireless Setup Wizard)Step 5:Here, you will need to configure settings for the wireless.
You have to select the bigpond wifi and then use the ssid key to manually connect dlink to bigpond.
