WiFi Relay

Extend a WiFi network range and coverage by connecting Outdoor WiFi extender to the existing WiFi hotspots.

The EZR13T extender can be configured in WiFi client mode to connect to an existing WiFi hotspot as a client device. When joining another WiFi network, the router will obtain internet connectivity through that target wireless access point.

The WiFi relay function requires connecting to a single-band, single-channel WiFi network, and a mixed 2.4/5.8G hotspot is not supported.

To set up the router as a WiFi relay client, log into the router and go to "Network > Wireless."

  1. Click the "Scan" button on the first row of "radio0," it will open a new page and scan the nearby WiFi hotspots.

  2. It jumps to the initial WiFi relay configuration page.

    • Enter the WiFi password on the "WPA passphrase" field.

    • Leave the new network as "wwan" in the "WAN/Mobile" firewall zone.

    • !! Do not enable the "Replace wireless configuration" check box unless you intend to disable its WiFi master hotspot.

  3. On the Wi-Fi client review page, check the target WiFi hotspot information, then scroll down to the bottom and click the "Save & Apply" button.

  4. It returns to the wireless overview page. Wait 2~3 minutes until the WiFi hotspot reboots.

If you fail to set up a WiFi relay connection, go to "Network > Wireless," delete the "SSID | Mode: Client," and repeat the above operation.

Ensure the target WiFi hotspot has a different IP range than the extender.

We can repeat the above operations and connect to multiple WiFi hotspots. Please use a different "Name of the new network" and set the firewall to "WAN."
