A Standard Guidelines for setting up Netgear Extenders

Netgear Wi-Fi range extenders are world known for its ease of installation. Its installation is that easy that all you need to do is power on the extender and then log into from here just follow the simple instruction you will be able to set up your extender and use it in the way you want.

In general, there are two standard ways of installing the wireless extender to an existing network. That is:

1. Through WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), or

2. Manually i.e through setup

These two methods are discussed briefly in coming sections.

The WPS or The Wi-Fi Protected Setup

The WPS stands for Wi-Fi Protected Setup. In this method, we configure extender with Wi-Fi connection and thus does not need any wired connection. But prime condition to install extender through this method is that WPS feature should have to be present in both Netgear extender as well as on router. All Netgear wifi range extenders do have WPS feature. The only exception to it is WN1000 RP which doesnot have WPS feature. To install such extender the only option available is through manual method.

Netgear Extenders having WPS button are:

Netgear ex7000 Extender, Netgear ex6920, Netgear ex6200, Netgear ex6100, Netgear ex3920, Netgear ex3800, Netgear ex2700, Netgear WN 3000RPV3, Netgear WN3000RPV1, Netgear WN2500RP, Netgear WN2000RPTV3, Netgear ex6150 Extender.

WPS method has its own advantages. It is the easiest way of installing the extender. Steps to be followed while installing extender through WPS method are as given below:

  1. Place router and extender in the same room in such a way that distance between the should not have to be more than 3 feet. Put the extender on power
  2. Press the WPS button present on both router and extender simultaneously.
  3. Now LED will start blinking on both router and extender.
  4. Within a while, three solid green lights will appear on the extender.
  5. These solid green lights confirm that the extender is configured and ready to be used. You can confirm the status of extender by logging into which is a local page or any other website.

By pressing WPS button on the router we enable it to search for a nearby device which in this case will be an extender. In this process, extender will automatically take up setting from router network and also copy it on its firmware. This makes the installation of extender through WPS hassle free and provides great ease to the user while installing extender.

In case of WPS, setup user need not to manually login into and type in the wireless password.

Manually Through Setup Page

In some cases where WPS setup is not feasible here we can configure extender through manual method. Manually extender can be configured through setup page.

Steps to be followed to setup extender through manual method are as given below:

  1. Put the extender on power and let it boot up.
  2. Any device which you have i.e either computer, tablet etc see Wi-Fi networks. Here you will find a Wi-Fi network named "NETGEAR_EX". You have to select this network. Then open up the web browser.
  3. This will prompt you to setup page. If it does not happen by its own then type in the address bar of your internet browser.
  4. Then you will be asked to type username and password. By default, username is admin and password is password. You have to enter the same.
  5. This time you will be prompted to Genie smart setup page, which is nothing else but is the page. This setup will ask you some basic questions and also to register your account with netgear.
  6. When you will be able to register with Netgear, network available will be listed in front of you.
  7. You have to select your home network and then click on ‘continue’.
  8. Then it will ask you for password/network key. You have to enter the same password and you usually use while connecting a wireless device to your home network. But while entering the password you have to take care of the fact that it is case sensitive in nature
  9. Then the window which appears click on skip. In last step check mark on the option saying "use the same security mode and password as those for the existing network".
  10. By this, your WiFi-extender stands to be configured. Now you can place it wherever you want to and can enjoy uninterrupted network range throughout your home.

In case you encounter with any problem while accessing setup page then few troubleshooting steps are as given below:

  1. Connections should have to be made properly and no connection should have to be in a loose state.
  2. Distance between extender and router should not have been greater than 3 feet.
