Wi-Fi is always convenient until it goes out of range. Ever had that time when you’re comfortably seated on a sofa but the Wi-Fi is just a few feet out of range? RAVPower Filehub works in a pinch. It can extend the wireless signal for you. This article shows you how to set up your Filehub so that it can act as a bridge between the wireless router and your device.

1. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds. You will see a blue led light up (middle led). This means you have turned the wireless router mode on successfully.

2. Use your mobile device or PC to connect via wifi to your Filehub. The SSID should be in the form FileHub-XXXX where XXXX is a 4 digit alphanumeric characters.

3. Activate your web browser and go to – this is the default IP address of your FileHub.

4. Log in as admin. The default username is “admin” and the default password is blank.

7. Click on the triangle in the text box to select a wireless network and type in the password.
IMPORTANT: If your wireless network is not detected, please change the wireless channel between 1-11, change the wireless encryption to WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and make your SSID visible. You can set the SSID invisible again after the initial set-up.

1. Click save.

2. If the settings are successfully saved, you will be brought back to the main menu.

3. If the Filehub successfully acquired internet access, the internet led (left led) will light up.

I hope that this article has been helpful in showing you how to use the Ravpower Filehub RP-WD02.

  1. Can I use this as a WiFi bridge to connect to a non WiFi computer?

    That is, I have a Verizon Hotspot with no Ethernet port.
    I have a computer with no wifi.
    If I could bridge the Wifi from Verizon to a device with an ethernet port
    That would be great.
    Dd-wrt will often not work unless BOTH the primary router and the secondary router use wpa2-aes security ONLY.
    and I have no idea what security Verizon uses.
