    How do I set my range extender as the default Network connection?


    I have a TP-Link range extender that I use with my laptop in my living room.

    I have "Connect automatically when this network is in range" checked in "Wireless Network Properties".

    I have also tried setting the "Interface Metric" to 1 and the WiFi "Interface Metric" to 2 as outlined in this article. How to change the priority order of network adapters on Windows 10 | Windows Central

    However, my laptop still chooses the WiFi connection that is the not the extender by default.

    How do I set my range extender as the default Network connection on Windows 10?

    :)

  2. D-Link Adds 11AC Connectivity to Line of Wi-Fi Range Extenders

    Eliminating Wi-Fi dead zones and broadening the range of a wireless network, D-Link today announced its latest Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender (DAP-1650) and Wireless AC750 Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520). Both extenders offer the latest 11AC Wi-Fi technology and deliver wireless signals to those hard-to-reach areas for seamless video streaming, online gaming and other everyday Internet activities.

    For added flexibility, both extenders are backwards compatible, enabling users to extend the reach of their existing 11N as well as 11AC Wi-Fi networks. The new extenders also allow users to add 5GHz connectivity to a single band network with the push of a button.

    "As more mobile devices and connected devices come into the home, the amount of time spent online as well as the need for stronger wireless signals continues to surge," said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. "D-Link's latest range extenders offer 11AC speeds and are backwards compatible, allowing users to keep their current Wi-Fi standard without having to upgrade right away. Both provide a quick, easy and secure boost to your current network, enabling you to use a range of mobile devices and even add dual band connectivity to an existing home network."

    The DAP-1650 and DAP-1520 deliver AC1200 (N300 + AC867Mbps) and AC750 (N300 + AC433Mbps) wireless speeds, respectively. Serving as a cost-effective, fast performance media bridge, the DAP-1650 is equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports for reliable wired connectivity ideal for media centers, game rooms and home offices. For reduced interference, both the DAP-1650 and DAP-1520 offer dual band connectivity, effectively turning a single router into a dual band solution. Both range extenders feature an enhanced user interface for advanced configuration settings and one-touch configuration. Simply push the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button on the range extender and then on the router or access point you want to extend, and the range extender will automatically configure itself.
