A range extender extends your wireless network’s range to areas of your home where there is typically a weak signal. Place your New Extender Setup about halfway between the wireless router and the affected area in order to setup Netgear Extender.
- Connect to the router the antennas that are used. If you’re setting up a desktop extender, you’ll usually have to do this.
- The antennas are already attached when you have a wall extender, just aim them upward.
- In the same space as your wireless router, complete the initial configuration of your extender if necessary.
- You can move it to the desired position until the configuration to setup Netgear Extender is complete.
- If your current wireless router supports WPS, use this process. Check the router for a WPS button if you’re not positive. WPS, Push n ‘Connect, PBC, Wi-Fi Basic Config, Fast Safe Configuration, the button can say (QSS). It could also have a padlock symbol as well.
- Plug an extender into a source of electricity. Use the power cable included in the package to connect the device to an outlet if you are using a laptop extender. Plug it directly into the wall socket if you have a wall extender in order to setup Netgear Extender.
- On your Netgear extender, click the WPS button. It should look like a tiny padlock radiating from its middle with curved lines. This tells the extender to begin to search for the WPS signal from the router.
- Click your wireless router’s WPS button. The WPS LED light of the extender would turn solid green until the extender and the router make the WPS connection to setup Netgear Extender.
- Place the extender halfway between the router and the weak Wi-Fi area. Unplug the extender and plug it back into its current position if you set up an extender in the same space as the router. The extender’s permanent position also has to be in the router’s range so that a signal can be received.
- Switch the extender on and, depending on your model, check the lights. Move the Mywifiext Setup near the router if the light is bright until the light is no longer red.
Using the same password you normally use to connect to your current router when you connect to the network. When you are farther away from your modem, you can now use Wi-Fi.
