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:

Kamil Anwar :

One should be for the Bigpond Network and One should be for the N300

Customer:

Kamil Anwar :

It should show on the iPad

Kamil Anwar :

Is there any other computer?

Customer:

where do you mean from other network in wi fi settings?

Kamil Anwar :

No, i mean if you have any other computer that has wireless?

Kamil Anwar :

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

Kamil Anwar :

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.

Customer:

no only my mac desktop and my i pad

Kamil Anwar :

Please wait, i'll send you a picture to show where the reset button is

It is flashing green constantly

Please check now if it appears on the ipad

Customer:

no

Kamil Anwar :

Do you see Ask to Join Networks on the iPad?

Customer:

yes

Kamil Anwar :

What is the wireless name on the mac for dlink dap-1320?

Kamil Anwar :

You should be able to see it in the airport utility

Customer:

Kamil Anwar :

Airport Utility

Kamil Anwar :

Should show you the name of the available wireless networks

Kamil Anwar :

Can you see that?

Customer:

Kamil Anwar :

Step 1:
Connect to dlink on your computer

Step 2:
On Safari, open www.dlinkap.local

You have to select the bigpond wifi and then use the ssid key to manually connect dlink to bigpond.

That's the manual for Dlink with picture instructions.

Kamil Anwar :

Start from page 16. of this manual
