Amped Wireless Range Extender AC1750 [Management]
As soon as the user installs the AC1750 Amped extender, he needs to manage it to keep the home network’s performance top-notch. One can manage the extender’s settings by accessing the default web URL i.e. setup.ampedwireless.com. However, the extender must be assigned an admin username and password first. It is because without admin details, the extender’s dashboard will be like a door without a lock and the network settings can be easily manipulated by an unauthorized user.
Apart from this, you should consider updating the extender’s firmware and changing the wireless network password to ensure the home network’s security. To know more about Amped wireless range extender AC1750 management, contact our online support team.
