Amped Wireless REC10 Wifi Range Extender
I was very worried before setting up the REC10 because I heard some complaints that the device is not compatible with some routers
. Fortunately, it works great on my Belkin N600 Wireless Dual-Band N+ Router and Optimum’s network.
Here are the steps to set up the REC10 Wifi Range Extender on an existing network. Those are easy steps but you could be confused if you don’t have the guide.

Step 1: Connect to REC10
Once plugging the REC10 to power outlet, it will be automatically turned on and you can easily find a new Wi-Fi network named Amped_REC10 in the list. Click on Connect.

Select the network that you want to extend. Make sure that the signal strength should be greater than 70%. If it is lower, you should find another location for the REC10 which is between your wireless router and dead zone.
Step 4: Connect to the new Extended Network
Now, you will need to reconnect to the new extend network. Then click on the checkbox “Confirm that you are now connected to your Extended Network” to finish.
