How to Configure Routers for Network Extender

If you have a 4G LTE Network Extender:

Please refer to this guide if after more than an hour after installation, the LED light on your Network Extender is blinking blue and the device's display has not progressed further than step 8 of the startup process. Additional router configuration may be needed due to firewall settings or other custom settings. These specific ports and IP Addresses must be unblocked on your router's firewall or settings for the Network Extender to work properly.

If you have a 3G Network Extender:

This guide may help if the System LED on your Network Extender continuously alternates from solid red to quickly flashing red. Additional router configuration may be necessary due to restrictive firewall settings or other custom settings. These specific ports and IP Addresses must be unblocked on your router's firewall or settings for the Network Extender to work properly.

Instructions

Select the type of router you have and follow the instructions to configure it:

Note: Before following the instructions below, please note that Verizon does not own or support third party routers. These instructions are provided as guidance on how to use them with the Verizon Wireless Network Extender. We are not responsible for the effects of any configuration settings.

D-Link Routers

Here's how to configure your router:

We recommend that you have the latest router firmware or software before starting the configuration process. Visit D-Link’s website for instructions on how to update your firmware.

  1. Make sure your IPSec (VPN) passthrough is enabled and supported. Please see the Specifications tab on D-Link's router product page for more information.

  2. Make sure the following ports are enabled:
    • 123 UDP
    • 4500 UDP
    • 500 UDP
    • 53 TCP / UDP
    • 52428 TCP / UDP

Older model routers might require port forwarding. Visit D-Link’s FAQ page to learn how to create a port forward rule.

Note: You may need to know the IP Address assigned to Network Extender by your router in order to forward ports. This can be found by going into your router's DHCP settings and finding the IP Address that is assigned to the Network Extender's MAC ID# / Address. The Network Extender's MAC ID is found on a sticker under the unit. For a 4G Network Extender, the IP Address can also be found by pressing the display button until it is displayed on the screen.

Please refer to your router's User Guide, or contact your router manufacturer to assist with configuring the above settings. Additionally, you may be able to find information by searching D-Link's Support website for instructions on topics such as port forwarding or setting up QoS.

We recommend that you have the latest router firmware or software before starting the configuration process. Visit Cisco's Knowledge Base page on firmware updates to learn how to download the latest drivers for your router.

Here's how to configure your router:

  1. Make sure your IPSec (VPN) passthrough is enabled and supported. Visit Cisco's Knowledge Base page on VPN to learn how to set up a VPN passthrough.

  2. Verify your Quality of Service (QoS) is enabled and supported. Visit Cisco's Knowledge Base page on QoS to learn how to implement a QoS.

  3. Make sure the following ports are enabled:
    • 123 UDP
    • 4500 UDP
    • 500 UDP
    • 53 TCP / UDP
    • 52428 TCP / UDP

Visit Cisco's Knowledge Base site to learn how to set up single port forwarding and how to check the devices connected to your router.

Note: You may need to know the IP Address assigned to the Network Extender by your router in order to forward ports. This can be found by going into your router's DHCP settings and finding the IP Address that is assigned to the Network Extender's MAC ID# / Address. The Network Extender's MAC ID is found on a sticker under the unit. For a 4G Network Extender, the IP Address can also be found by pressing the display button until it is displayed on the screen.

Please refer to your router's User Guide, or contact your router manufacturer to assist with configuring the above settings. Additionally, you may be able to find information by searching Cisco's website for instructions on topics such as port forwarding or setting up QoS.
