I am connected through my wifi extender, but when I do, it goes to the actual router configuration page, not my WiFi extender's configuration page.

The default IP address for my WiFi extender is according to the manual https://www.engeniustech.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/EAP1300-User-Manual.pdf

But I get blocked, saying the connection was refused or took too long.

I even got a wifi scanner for all the connections and IPs on the 192.168.x.x network, and tried putting all of those IPs into my internet browser. All of them say the connection was refused or took too long.

Some info: - I'm trying to add security/password to my WiFi extender. Right now, it is publically accessible. - I am on a windows laptop and the network is considered a Windows public network, not private.

How do I access my EnGenius Wifi extender settings?

  • On page 8 of the manual, engeniustech.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/… it says The following are the Minimum System Requirements in order to configure the device:  Computer with an Ethernet interface or wireless network capability I guess it's still worth a try. – ahnbizcad Sep 11 '17 at 23:29
