IMPORTANT: This article will only teach you how to change the Extended Wireless Settings of your range extender. It is recommended that your range extender has a unique Wi-Fi name.
Access the web-based setup page of your range extender. To know how, click here.
On the range extender's web-based setup page, click Basic Settings under Wireless.
Locate the Extended Wireless Settings of the band that you want to change. Then, uncheck the box beside Make same as router settings.
NOTE: In this example, the 2.4 GHz bandis used.
Enter your preferred Wi-Fi name and password in the Network Name (SSID) and Password fields.
If you wish to change the Extended Wireless Advanced settings like the Channel Width, Security Mode, and SSID Broadcast, do so in these fields:
If you also want to change the Extended Wireless Settings of your 5 GHz network, same rule applies. Scroll down to the 5 GHz Extended Wireless Settings section then repeat Steps 3-5.
NOTE: Make sure that your router is broadcasting both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. If your router's 5 GHz band is disabled or doesn't have this feature, the 5 GHz settings on your range extender will be grayed out.
Click to apply changes.
You should now have successfully changed the Extended Wireless Settings of your range extender.
