If you’ve recently purchased a JOOWIN Wi-Fi Extender and are unsure of how to set it up, continue reading this article. In this post, I’ll guide you through the process of setting up this gadget in a matter of minutes.
Let’s get this party started!
How to Set Up a JOOWIN Wi-Fi Extender?
The following are the procedures to take in order to configure your JOOWIN Wi-Fi extender:
1. Choose the Repeater Mode
The first step in configuring your JOOWIN Wi-Fi extender is to select the “Repeater Mode,” which can be found on the device’s side by pressing the “Repeater Mode” button. Check the mode selector on the side of the device and make sure it is set to the “Repeater” position before continuing.
2. Power on the Extender
After selecting the appropriate mode, connect the gadget to a functioning wall socket and turn it on. Locate the power button on the side of the gadget and hold it down for a few seconds to turn it on. Wait for all of the lights on the gadget to come on at the same time.
3. Connect to the Extender Network
As soon as the lights come on, wait for around 60 seconds, then connect to “JOOWIN-XXX-2G” or “JOOWIN-XXX-5G,” depending on which option appears on your phone’s Wi-Fi menu.
4. Open the Management Page and Set Password
On your smartphone or PC, open a web browser and type in the address “192.168.10.1” in the address box (ideally Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). Then click on “Set Password” and input the default password, which is “admin.”
5. Scan and Select Your Wi-Fi
The extender will search for and connect to any available Wi-Fi networks. Following that, choose the Wi-Fi network you wish to expand, input the password, and click “Save Settings.”
6. Setup Process is Complete
Auto-rebooting of the device will take place. Connect Wi-Fi “XXX-2G” or “XXX-5G,” which is your new extender Wi-Fi, to the network you just created. The password is the same as the one you used to connect to Wi-Fi.
Take notice of the buttons that say “combine Wi-Fi” and “sync your device” when you get to the last phase of the setting. If you enable “Combine Wi-Fi,” you will be required to reconnect Wi-Fi “XXX-2G&5G” (your new extender Wi-Fi) once the device automatically reboots after it has been turned on.
However, if you select the “Sync your device” option, the extended Wi-Fi name will be the same as your personal Wi-Fi name, which eliminates the requirement to rejoin the extended Wi-Fi when the setup process is complete. Using the “combine Wi-Fi” option, on the other hand, ensures that a high-quality band is used for improved performance.
What is the best way to reset my JOOWIN Wi-Fi Extender?
Here’s how to reset your JOOWIN Wi-Fi extender:
- Locate the WPS/Reset button on the back of your extension (usually located at the bottom of the device).
- Press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds.
- The lights will go out and then come back on, indicating that the reset has been successfully completed.
Note: Please keep in mind that after completing a factory reset, you will need to set up your device anew.
Is it possible for my JOOWIN Wi-Fi Extender to connect to any router?
Yes, the most of JOOWIN Wi-Fi Extenders models are compatible with the majority of existing routers, thus you won’t have to alter your router.
What should I do if my JOOWIN Wi-Fi is always disconnecting?
It’s possible that you’ll need to first try to reset the extension. If it doesn’t work, you might want to try updating the firmware. To perform this, follow these steps:
- Go to www.joo-win.com.
- Select the “Download” option from the drop-down menu.
- Enter the search term “JW-WR754AC” and download the firmware. Enter the IP address “192.168.10.1” to load the firmware.
- Then select “System Tools,” followed by “Upgrade Firmware.”
- Now, upload the file that you just downloaded by clicking on the “Upload” button.
What is the best location for my Wi-Fi Extender?
In an ideal situation, your extender should be situated halfway between your router and the weak signal region in question. Make certain that the location you chose is within the range of your existing Wi-Fi router network before proceeding.
