KING KS1000 Swift Range Wi-Fi Extender and WifiMax Router Instruction Manual

WiFiMax™Wi-Fi Extender KWM1000(included with KS1000)

The KING WiFiMax creates your own private and secure Wi-Fi network, just like you have in your home. When in range of an available network simply configure your wifi max to connect to that network, and it will extend the internet access from that network to your own private Wi-Fi network.

SWIFT™Omnidirectional Wi-Fi Antenna KS1000(not included with KWM1000)

KING Swift is an omnidirectional Wi-Fi antenna that increases the range and performance of your KING WiFiMax router and range extender. This 2.4GHz Wi-Fi antenna mounts to your roof to connect to your KING WiFiMax via a single cable and allows your KING WiFiMax to connect to networks from even farther away and still utilize its 5GHz network for the fastest speeds.


KING WiFiMax KWM1000For increased performance, you can add a KING Swift (contact KING Customer Service at 952-345-8147).

NOTE: No tools are required to set up and use the KING WiFiMax (unless wall mounting the unit).There are keyhole slots on the back to mount the unit to a wall. The user must determine where and how to best mount the unit to a wall (inside use only).KING Swift KS1000Includes the KING WiFiMax and power supply shown above.KING Swift antenna with preattached cable

  1. Go to your smartphone, tablet, or computer’s Wi-Fi settings page and connect to the KING 5G network:XXXXXX is a number/letter combination unique to your router and can be found on the bottom of your router in the SSID row.If you do not see KING_XXXXXX_5G (5GHz network), connect to KING_XXXXXX (2.4GHz network).Always choose the 5G network if possible, as it is faster than the 2.4GHz network.
  2. Open your device’s web browser.Go to:http://mykingwifi.comType exactly as written.
  3. Tap “WiFi Name & Password.”
  4. On the screen below, you MUST change your Wi-Fi name and password to personalize it and keep it secure. Do steps A and B for both the 2.4 GHz and 5GHZ networks (you will only have to do this once).A Enter a new Wi-Fi name.When entering your new names, make sure to completely erase the existing names in the boxes.Add-5G after your 5GHZ network name to differentiate it from your 2.4GHz network name.B Enter a password.KING highly recommends password protecting your name.Choose WPA/WPA2-PSK under “Encryption Mode” to enable password protection.Passwords can be the same for both networks if you wish and must be at least 8 characters.Enter names and passwords for both networks.2.4GHZWrite your network name here:Write your password here:5GHZWrite your network name here:Write your password here:
  5. When you have entered names and passwords for both networks, tap “Save.”You have personalized your router setup.Continue to the next page.If you turned off your cellular network during first-time use  it is safe to turn it back on


When using a smartphone or tablet:to maintain the best connection to your KING WiFiMax, it is suggested that the smartphone or tablet’s cellular network be turned off during standard operation.

  1. Go to your phone, tablet, or computer’s settings page and connect to the Wi-Fi Network with your personalized network name (you created this on page 6).The example shown is “MyWiFiName_5G”.If your device cannot connect to your 5G network, connect to your other network.For best performance, choose the 5GHz network whenever possible.
  2. Open your device’s web browser. Go to: http://mykingwifi.comType exactly as written.
  3. Tap “Wireless Repeating.”
  4. Tap the blue arrows to scan for networks.

    The router is scanning for networks.

  5. After the scanning process is complete, this screen will appear.
  6. Select the network you would like to extend (not your customized router name) and input the password if necessary (not pictured).Tap “Save.”
  7. This popup should appear. Tap “OK.”
  8. Your KING WiFiMax will reboot.If your router gets stuck at 100% and won’t finish rebooting or if your Wi-Fi device does not have internet access, you may need to go back to your smartphone or tablet’s settings page and ensure that it reconnected to the Wi-Fi network with your personalized network name, as you may lose connection during the router’s rebooting process.

Your KING WiFiMax is now extending your network!If you turned off your cellular network during standard operation, it is now safe to turn it back on.


• For best performance, the antenna should be located as far away as possible from other rooftop objects (TV antennas, AC units, etc.) and with the best all-around line of sight.• When determining locations, make sure the long cable will reach the KING WiFiMax when attached to the KING Swift cable. (KING Swift cable may go directly to prewireenclosure – see opposite page).• Do not locate the KING WiFiMax or KING Swift in a slide-out.• Cable connection between KING Swift and long cable must always be inside the vehicle (or prewire enclosure if using).

  1. Drill a 5/16” hole in the roof where the cable will enter the roof. Feed the long cable into position with enough cable sticking out of the roof to attach the KING Swift cable. This end is marked “ROOF” and is red.
  2. Connect KING Swift cable and long cable.
  3. Apply roof-compatible sealant around the perimeter of the bracket. Feed the cable into the hole, lower bracket into position, and fasten to the roof. sealfastenerheadsandcablehole in roof
  4. Inside vehicle, install wall plate if desired, and connect the cable to KING WiFiMax.

Prewire connections with OEM installed prewire enclosure

  1. Remove (4) screws and take off the prewire cap. Prewire cap
  2. Knock out the hole for the watertight connector. watertight connector
  3. Take the nut off the watertight connector.

  5. Install the connector in the prewire cap with the nut.
  6. Feed desired amount of cable through the connector and tighten the connector’s sealing nut.
  7. Connect the two cables.
  8. Replace the prewire cap and fasten with (4) screws

DO NOT OVER-TIGHTEN SCREWS INTO PLASTIC.A cable connection must be made inside the enclosure, NOT ON ROOF!

IMPORTANT!The installer is responsible for determining and supplying the most appropriate fasteners to secure the bracket to the roof.All holes, fastener heads, and the entire perimeter of the bracket must be completely sealed and weatherproofed with roof-compatible sealant.If there is a prewired enclosure on the roof, you will find a preinstalled wall plate in the vehicle. Remove this wall plate and install the included black or white wall plate.


The KING WiFiMax doesn’t power on (no blue lights on front).Make sure the power supply plug is securely inserted into the back of KING WiFiMax. Make sure the power supply is plugged into a known good power outlet.I can’t find the network KING_XXXXXX 5G or KINGJXXXXX.Make sure your KING WiFiMax is plugged in. It may take up to a minute for these networks to appear. Some older devices may be unable to see the 5GHz network. This is completely okay; just use the KING_XXXXXX network.I can’t connect to mykingwifi.comMake sure you are connected to your KING WiFiMax’s network. Then make sure you type in the web address exactly as it appears in this manual: can’t enter a password in the designated box.Choose WPANVPA2-PSK under Encryption Mode” (right above the password box) to enable password protection.I don’t see the Upstream VViFi name I want to extend in my list of networks.If a network is very far away or very weak. the KING WiFiMax may not be able to see it. or may not offer it as an option. Try scanning again for networks by clicking on the blue circular arrows. If your network is still not offered as an option, try moving your KING WiFiMax to a location closer to your desired network.When my router reboots, it gets stuck at 100% and won’t finish rebooting.Try reloading the page. If the page won’t load, make sure your device is still connected to the KING WiFiMax. It may have disconnected during the reboot.The KING WiFiMax doesn’t seem to extend the range of my Wifi or has trouble picking up signals from my source.Make sure all 4 antennas (3 if KING Swift is connected) are pointing up. If wall mounting, antennas must be rotated to point up as well.Certain types of obstructions (other vehicles, buildings, or large amounts of metal) can reduce signal levels. Try relocating the KING WiFiMax.NOTE: KING WiFiMax can be reset by pressing and holding the reset button until the front lights go out (15-20 seconds).
