Wavlink AC1200 Setup

With the Wavlink AC1200 setup, you can enjoy a better-speed internet connection that is free of dead zones. But, before that, you have to complete the Wavlink AC1200 setup. First, you need some basic preparations.

Preparation For Setup

A Cable For Ethernet

You should have a new Ethernet cable before starting the Wavlink AC1200 setup process. That’s because it will allow you to connect the extender to the router. A wired connection is more reliable than a wireless one.

Computer or Laptop

You will need a PC or laptop to access the default repeater URL or login page. It is possible for either device to work and deliver the desired results. Please ensure that the devices are running the latest operating system.

An Internet Browser

Wavlink wifi extender setup requires the use of an internet browser. It is your choice whether to use Chrome, Safari, Firefox, or any other web browser. To ensure that the chosen web browser is up-to-date, you must ensure that it has the latest version. It should also be compatible with the computer or laptop used for installation.

Details of Your Login

Wifi.wavlink.com login details are also important when setting up the Wavlink AC1200. You need them to log into your range extender. As a result, ensure that you have access to the default login credentials for the extender.

Power Socket

Wavlink setup should begin with a stable and consistent electricity supply. The device may suffer damage if you don’t take care of it. If you choose a wall socket, make sure there are no signs of short-circuiting.

Setup Prerequirements – Plug in the Power Adapter And Check the LED

Plug in your Wavlink AC1200 router to an electrical outlet. The LED light on the side of the device will turn solid green, indicating that it is online and ready for use. Note that LED indicates different things. For example:

  • Check the LED on your range extender to see if it is on.
  • LED will be off if the range extender is not plugged in.
  • The LED will flash if the range extender is connected to the internet

If the LED is off, plug out the extender. Wait 30 seconds and then plug it back. Now check if it’s on. If it’s not lit up, send us a message.
