Move the Range Extender
When the connection is complete, locate the Range Extender
between the router/AP and the wireless device to get better
performance. After placing your RP-AC56 in an ideal location, RP-
AC56 connects to your router/AP in about one (1) minute.
Signal Indicator
•	 To get the best performance, place the Range Extender
between your router/AP and wireless device.
•	 The Wi-Fi signal indicator indicates the connection perfor-
mance from the Range Extender to the router/AP. Refer to the
Wi-Fi LED indicator in section A Quick Look.
NOTES:
•	 Place your RP-AC56 between your router/AP and wireless
device to get the best extender performance.
• 	 Place your RP-AC56 in a location where you can get green Wi-
Fi LED.
IMPORTANT!
•	 
To minimize interference, keep RP-AC56 away from devices
like cordless phones, Bluetooth devices and microwave ovens.
•	 
We recommend that you place your RP-AC56 in open or
spacious location.
3.	 Check if RP-AC56’s Wi-Fi indicator turns solid light, which indi-
cates that the Range Extender has connected to the wireless
network successfully. The Range Extender’s wireless network
name (SSID) changes to your existing Wi-Fi network name,
ending with _RPT or _RPT5G. For example:
	 Existing Wi-Fi network name: existing NetworkName
	 
New Extender 2.4GHz network name: existing Networ-
kName_RPT
	 
New Extender 5GHz network name: existing Networ-
kName_RPT5G
	 To connect an additional Wi-Fi device to your Extender net-
work, use the same network password as that of your existing
wireless router.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q1: What should I do if my router does not supportWPS?
	 •  You can use Option A to set up RP-AC56.
Q2: Why is that theWi-Fi LED does not light up after completing MethodTwo?
	 •  
You may have entered the wrong router SSID and password. Reset your RP-AC56, double check your router SSID/password, and
set up RP-AC56 again.
Q3: Why is it that I cannot see the login page after entering http://repeater.asus.com in the browser?
	 •  
Ensure that your computer is connected to the extender network only, and set your computer to Obtain an IP address auto-
matically.
Q4: My router security isWEP, and I entered a wrong passphrase or security key on the extender. Now I
cannot access the Extender any more.What can I do?
	 •  
The Range Extender cannot check whether the WEP passphrase is correct or not. When entered a wrong passphrase, your wire-
less device cannot get the correct IP address from the Range Extender. Please reset the Range Extender to its factory defaults to
get the IP address back.
Q5: How do I reset RP-AC56?
	 • 
Press the RESET button on the top of RP-AC56 for about two (2) seconds. Wait for about five (5) seconds until the LEDs blink
slowly.
Q6: Why doesn’t the 5GHz signal indicator of the Range Extender light up?
	 •  
Check whether your router supports 5GHz band. If your router is single band, the Range Extender’s 5GHz Signal Indicator will not
light up and it works at 2.4GHz band only.
Wireless Media Playback
The Range Extender supports wireless media playback, which allows you to stream and play your
network music through its audio port. You can use ASUS AiPlayer app to control the music streaming
over the Range Extender from your mobile device. Search for“RP-AC56”or“AiPlayer”from Google Play
or App Store and download the app to your mobile device.
NOTE:  You can insert an earphone, powered speaker, or stereo system to the 3.5mm stereo audio
port.
