What can I do if I fail to log into the web-based setup page of WAVLINK Wi-Fi range extender?

Occasionally you may not be able to log into the web-based management page of your Wi-Fi range extender when you try to access the URL http://waplogin.link or the IP . This may be because http://waplogin.link or http://wifi.wavlink.com are not regular Internet sites. It is a local URL used to open the Settings for the WAVLINK Wi-Fi range Extender.

If your computer is not connected to the Internet, the following error message may appear when accessing http://waplogin.link in the browser address bar. 


Google Chrome:

 “Unable to connect to the Internet. Google Chrome can’t display the web-page because your computer isn’t connected to the Internet.”

Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge :

“Page cannot be displayed” or “You are not connected to a network.”
