Here We are explaining Rockspace Extender device. If you are a victim of terrible connectivity then you aren’t alone. This is a problem that a lot of people face every day, you and I included. Just like in fashion our technology is evolving every single day into something new and different so there’s too much competition in the current market as there are a lot of products by different manufacturers offering the exact same thing. So naturally, a lot of people are confused and don’t know exactly which brand to trust and purchase from. This kind of market is primarily where the ones who offer the best of the best at a reasonable price succeed.
I have a router in my home that I bought a few years back but ever since that time the networking technology and the Wi-Fi standards have increased which makes it incompatible with older devices that support the latest 5GHz channels. So what you can infer from this is that you need to get a device that is future proof and can survive a few years of technological development without any troubles. Well as I said before my router is old and I was looking to add something to my network to expand my range and that device is the new rockspace extender. This device is great and has a hassle-free free setup through the re.rockspace.local link. It also provides excellent range and speeds even through thick walls. Let’s take a deeper look into the product.
Setting up the Rockspace extender
The set-up process only takes a few minutes overall but if you are new to this then it may take some time for you to set it up as you need to familiarise yourself with the instructions. Anyway, the key point to note before the set-up is to make sure that it is carefully unpacked and plugged into a socket and turned on. After this is done there are a few ways to complete the set-up process. I will mention them all below and you can choose how you want to set-up. The most frequently used way is to set-up the extender is using either an ethernet cable or wirelessly connect to your laptop or smartphone then go to the default IP address or to https //re.rockspace.local which and enter the login credentials then click the setup tab and it will redirect you to the setup page.
Once there set-up your extender name and password and other details which you want to, if you want to use it as a different access point otherwise don’t change anything. After that is done click the scan option to virtually scan your surroundings for your Wi-Fi router and then select it, this will prompt a window onto which you need to enter your router’s password. Wait for a few seconds for the connection to be established.
Set up Methods
Now that the frequently used set-up method is done you can also set up the extender using the WPS button. To do that press and hold the WPS button on both your router as well as your extender then wait for the internet symbol to turn on in your extender. Once that is done you are good to go. By the way, your extender’s default SSID will be rockspace_ext, and changing that will result in some weird complications. Now that you have finished setting up the extender let’s look at some common problems faced by them.
Rockspace Extender troubleshooting
If you have an issue with the extender then go to http //re.rockspace.local and run the troubleshooter. Whilst setting up or after doing so there may be some issues that can arise and in order to solve that you need to find what’s causing the issue. You can solve the issue most of the time using the troubleshooter but on the rare occasion that it doesn’t work there are a few things that you can try. First try turning it on and off by leaving a few minutes interval between them, then do the same with the router.
If that fails to work you need to factory reset the device back to its default settings and to do that press and hold the reset button for a few seconds then wait for the extender to finish resetting, while this is happening the device will be non-functional so don’t try to use it or turn it off. Once this is done set it up again properly.
