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.
