  eky12 27 Jan 13

Hi Any help would be appreciated, I am trying to install a Wifi Extender, the instruction say plug it in to an electric socket near the router & search for the available WiFi networks in the area and connect to Edimax_Extender in Windows7 click on Connect the network without setting it up, Now open your we browser Internet Exploere and put http://extender643B7C int the address bar. This as far as I can get Internet Explorer will not find the web site. I was using Int Exp 9, So I uninstalled it and tried Int Exp 8 But it will not find the web site. I am using Windows 7 on a Dell Laptop with Plusnet Broadband and a Thomsom router. I have AVG and Malwarebytes. Many thanks eky12.

Not sure if this will help but a on a previous thread the advice was to connect both the extender and the router with a CABLE before progressing.

You could try to enter the IP address of your extender into the address bar - there is a short video on youtube that says this is an alternative method and it should be

Sorry have tried this, The problem is with Internet Explorer I was told the problem was with Java so I uninstalled it but Int Exp will still not find this site, Just getting Int Exp cannot display this Web page.

Does it have to be Internet Explorer. Have you tried another browser?

Just a thought, when you are trying to access the log-in page do you have your Edimax connected to your PC via ethernet cable?

Yes it only works with Int Expl

No I am following instructions to install it wifi.

I have read that to access the log-in page you need to have your pc connected by ethernet that is why I asked. I assume when you have managed to get onto the log-in pages that some form of enabling will take place.
