the problem by following the instructions on the screen (1 page 22).
• Check whether the connection type is correct.
• When you connect the Base Station to the wireless router by wireless,
refer to "Wireless Settings (Client)" (1 page 28) to check the settings.
• Check whether the modem power and router power are turned on.
If the power is turned on, try turning the power off, waiting for a short
while, and then turning the power on again.
• Make sure the LAN cable is securely connected.
• Make sure you are using the correct type of LAN cable (straight-wired
or cross-wired).

for the device you want to connect or contact your ISP.

the Internet at a time. Make sure no other device is already online.

signal of the router may not reach to the install location of the Base
Station. Check to see if something is interfering with the wireless signal,
or the distance between the Base Station and the wireless router is too far
for the wireless signal to reach.
If the WIRELESS LED keeps blinking: The Wireless Settings (Client)
may be incorrect. Set them correctly (1 page 28).
• Is the wireless LAN set up properly? Configure the same information
on the computer as you set on [Wireless Settings (Access Point)] screen
(1 page 26).
• Check the frequency band (2.4 GHz band or 5 GHz band) supported by
your computer or wireless LAN card and set the Base Station to operate
at that frequency band.
• Set the wireless mode switch on the bottom of the Base Station LF-B20
to "AP".
