Amped Range extender SR10000 always set up with your router’s WiFi. Make sure it should be in the range of your home network. You can see the signal strength of your home network by login to your extender “setup.ampedwireless”.
Factors Responsible for No Internet Access:
- Home Wireless security
- Placement of Wireless extender.
- The DHCP server for the home network.
- Internet Access on your Home Network.
- DNS issue
- An IP conflict
1. Home Wireless Security
Make sure whenever you connect the extender with your home network use the correct password. If you change the wireless password or wireless name by login in your router page. When your Home Network is secured. You may enter incorrect wireless security for your Home Network. Assure that, you have the correct network security key to connect to the Home Network.
In that case, you have to connect your SR10000 again with New WiFi name and password. Otherwise, it won’t get internet access through your Amped extender.
2. Placement of wireless extender
The placement of extender is very important whenever you are using SR10000 range extender. It is necessary to put the extender at a perfect location where you get 70% signal strength from your home WiFi network. If you get the signal strength lesser than 70% then change the location of your extender (put it a bit closer to the router).
As a result, if your range extender is too far from the main router. Run through the Setup Wizard again. Whenever you click on the SCAN option, your SR10000 should show all the available networks within a signal strength of 70% or greater. If it does not, change the location of your Amped extender or take closer to your Home Network and try again.

3. The DHCP server for the home network
Verify that your Home Network router’s DHCP server is enabled. The range extender will get an IP from your Home Network router by “setup.ampedwireless”. If it is disabled, your extender won’t get an IP address to access the internet. The DHCP server helps you to get an IP address automatically from your home network.
The SR10000 includes a complex AUTO DHCP feature to help manage the IP addresses within your extended network and with your Home Network. When your extender connects to a Home Network, the Repeater will obtain an IP address from your Home Network’s router and act as a DHCP Client. However, when there is no connection available or when it is not connected to the home network.
In that case, the Amped extender will act as a DHCP Server. You may also manually control the IP settings of your range extender by choosing Client, Server or Disabled from the DHCP drop-down menu. These steps can be used by advanced users.
4. Internet Access on your home network
Please check that you have internet access on your home network by connecting directly to the Home Network first. If you can go online then this is not a problem. If you cannot go online, then the Home Network’s Internet connection must first be resolved.
- By rebooting the Home Network router.
- You can check the cable connection for your router.
- Check out the status of the modem. (If it is available)
- In last, contact your internet service provider.

5. DNS Issue
Sometimes you might get an issue with DNS settings on your Amped extender. The extender is always obtaining an IP address automatically and the same things applicable to your DNS server for the extender. After login in your extender settings, you need to be aware of DNS settings that should be the same as you are using in your home network router.
You can try to reboot the SR10000 range extender and then accessing a website. If you are getting internet access on your device that means it is working. Else, if that fails, then reboot the Main Router to see if that fixes it.
6. An IP Conflict
An IP conflict only happens whenever you change the IP settings of your extender or home network. As mentioned above, for your Home Network and your Extended Network both needs to be on DHCP Server by “setup.ampedwireless”. If your home network is on the DHCP server then you need to change the IP address for your extender. In other words, try to adjust the IP address of your Extended Network using IP values that should be different from your Home Network.
Your Home Network Settings page allows you to adjust settings for the Home Network connection. These settings can be adjusting the amped extender and once you have already gone through the Smart Setup Wizard of the extender. Further, you can also change your current configuration.

- Channel Number: You need to enter the channel number for your Home Network as well as for your extender. If the channel number does not match, a connection will not be established.
- Channel Width: Your WiFi range extender that operates with two separate channel widths, 20Hz, and 40Hz.
20Hz allows operation on channels 1-11, while 40Hz is 5-11. (40Hz allows for faster speeds). You need to select the channel width as per recommendation in the manual for your extended network on “setup.ampedwireless”. The above-mentioned extender settings need to be matched with your Home Network for a successful connection.
