Check the color of the Link LED on the extender for knowing the connection status between the extender and router. Green is best whereas Red is poor.
A line of sight communication is best preferred for router and extender. If there is any thick wall or material in-between, then move the extender to a new location and it must not be beyond the limits of the router.
If there is no power connection available nearby extender, then move it to somewhere else along with the computer.
