E3200 Extender Setup

I recently added an E3200 Extender to my 3100 Router.

Using the WiFi setup, I hold the front Buttons on the 3100/3200 and they both flash BLUE.

They both go solid BLUE after a while, then the router goes WHITE and the Extender goes Solid YELLOW.

I have read that perhaps I should wait for the Extender to catch up??

I have waited 12 hours.

Help?

Solid yellow suggests "No Internet Connection." It is likely due to E3200's failure to obtain an IP address from G3100.

Can you go into G3100's Advanced > DHCP Configuration >  Connection List > Add Static Connection > Choose E3200?

If you have more questions, I am happy to help.

SOLVED!

I didn't have to wait 12 hours. I had to wait 24 and then reboot it, then it flashed fast YELLOW which means it is too close, so i moved it! 

Come on man! This Shouldn't be so hard FIOS!🤔

That is actually a very good, detailed original answer among the other dopey ones I have read here.

I will save that in case it acts up!
