DHCP Reservations are used to assign a specific IP address to a specific device on your network. Your device must be set up to receive a dynamic IP address (DHCP). This process is not the same as statically assigning IP address to your clients.

 

To do so, use the following steps:

 

Step 1: Open a web browser and enter http://dlinkrouter.local. or http://192.168.0.1 in the address bar.

 

Step 2: Enter your router password and click Log In.

 

Step 3: From the Home screen, click Connected Clients.

 

 

Step 4: Click the pencil icon next to the client you want to want to create a reservation for.

 

 

Step 5: Click Reserve IP to enable and enter the IP address you want to assign. Note this IP must be within the DHCP IP range. Click Save.

 

 

The next time the device is booted, the router will assign this IP address to it.

Follow the steps below to set up the COVR-3902 system using the D-Link Wi-Fi app.

 

Step 1: Download the D-Link Wi-Fi app from the App Store or Google Play. Download and install (do not launch app yet).

 

 

Step 2: Plug in only the COVR router and allow about one minute to bootup. Once the power LED is green, it is ready. Do not plug the extender in yet.

 

Step 3: Connect your device using Wi-Fi to the router. The router”s Wi-Fi network (SSID) and password are located on the bottom of the router or on the Wi-Fi Configuration card included. Once connected to the router, launch the Wi-Fi app.

 

Step 4: The first time you launch the app, the Device Connection screen will appear. Tap Next to continue.

 

 

Step 5: The Select Device screen will display the COVR-2600R (router) MAC address information. Tap Next to continue. If you do not see this, make sure your device is connected to the router via Wi-Fi. If you are connected to another Wi-Fi network or using 3g/4g, it will not work.

 

 

Step 6: Plug in the extender near the router and power on. Tap Next to continue. The router will now search for the extender and connect. This process can take up to two minutes.

 

 

If you cannot connect to the extender, make sure the extender is powered on and in the same room as the router. If the power LED and the two LEDs on the right are green (the other two are off), you will need to reset the extender by pressing the reset button located on the back of the extender for 10 seconds with a paperclip.

 

You can also tap Next and connect the extender to the router by pressing the WPS button on the extender, or tap Skip and connect later.

 

 

If you tapped Next, within two minutes press the WPS button on the side of the extender. Allow 2-3 minutes to connect.

 

 

Step 7: When the extender is finished installing, tap Next to continue.

 

 

Step 8: Enter a Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and a Wi-Fi password. Tap Next to continue. Note this Wi-Fi name and password will be assigned to both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands on both the router and extender.

 

 

Step 9: Enter a password for the COVR system. This password is used to configure the router and the extender via Wi-Fi app and the web UI. If you want the app to remember this password, tap Remember Password to enable. Tap Next to continue.

 

 

Step 10: Tap Save to finish setting up the COVR-3029 system.

 

 

Step 11: Tap Next to continue.

 

 

Step 12: If you want to share your device settings (Wi-Fi network name and password), tap Share, or tap No to continue. If you tapped Share, you will can select who and how you want to send this information to (e.g. Twitter, text message, etc).

 

Step 13: Congratulations your router and extender are configured. Tap Finish. Once the router boots back up, you will need to connect your device to the new Wi-Fi network you just created. Also, you can unplug the extender and place in a location between your router and any dead zones. When you plug the extender in, allow up to two minutes to boot. The LEDs will indicate your connection quality to the router. Green means it is a good connection, orange means a fair connection, and red means a poor connection. If orange or red, move the extender closer to the router.
