Step 10: The DCH-M225 has a built-in Wi-Fi Extender function which will re-broadcast the Wi-Fi connection from the uplink router as an extended Wi-Fi network to increase your wireless coverage. An SSID and password will automatically be generated. If you wish to change these settings, enter the SSID and password that you wish to apply to the extended Wi-Fi network. If you wish to use the same settings as your source network, check the Use the same Wi-Fi Network Name for the Extended Network box. Click Next to continue.
