The Network Extender from Samsung expands your indoor cell signal and lets you seamlessly transfer to the nearest cell tower when leaving the Network Extender coverage area. This video covers it all, from setting up the Network Extender up in your home or office, to eploring the LED indicators, installing the external GPS antenna, and connecting a cell phone to the system.
Hi and welcome. I'm going to show you how to set up a Network Extender and review some tips to help you get the most out of your device. So let's get started.
Make sure you have the following:
Setup is complete when all 4 LED lights on the device are blue. This usually takes up to an hour, but can range from 15 minutes to 3 hours based on GPS signal strength.
A strong GPS signal not only helps reduce setup time, but it's required for continuous operation of the Network Extender and provides your location to emergency responders if you call 911.
For best results with GPS signal strength, place the Network Extender as close to a window as possible.
If you're not able to place the device near a window and it's taking more than an hour to establish a GPS signal, use the included 23 foot GPS extension cable.
To do this, remove the antenna cover on top of the device, then remove the antenna and connect it to the end of the extension cable labeled "GPS antenna" and plug the other end of the cable to the Network Extender.
Next, connect the Ethernet cable to your router and Network Extender.
Then, plug in the power supply.
The 4 LED lights will start to flash. Let's talk about each of them in more detail:
If the System LED is blinking red fast for more than 3 minutes, it may be due to your router. Try plugging the cable directly into your modem instead of the back of the router to see if that works. If it does then you know the issue is due to your router's settings. For assistance, contact your Internet Service Provider or go to our support page.
The GPS LED indicates the device is locked onto a GPS signal. If the light is red or blinking red for more than 15 minutes, move the Network Extender next to a window or use the GPS extension cable.
Now that all four lights are solid blue, there are 2 tips to know before making a call.
You must be within 15 feet for 3 minutes to establish an initial connection with the Network Extender. This is required every time you enter your home. After a connection is made, you can move up to 40 feet away.
If you have a phone with Advanced Calling activated and in a location with weak 4G signal, turn the feature off from your phone to connect with the Network Extender.
Here's how you know if you're connected to the Network Extender.
Now take a look at a few tips and important information for reference.
You can set up prioritized users for the Network Extender. Log onto My Verizon, and enter Network Extender in the search box. Select "Manage Network Extender" then choose "Managed Access." From here you can add up to 50 Verizon Wireless mobile numbers.
