Setup Netgear Extender Step by Step
Step 1 For Netgear Extender Setup
Setup Netgear Extender as close to the Wi-Fi router as possible. You can move the extender to its new location after you complete the configuration process.
Connect the extender to an electrical outlet, and then wait approximately one minute for the device’s Status LED to turn green.
Click the “Network” icon in the taskbar on your computer, and then select “Netgear_Ext” from the list of Wi-Fi Networks to establish the connection.
Launch a new browser window to open the Netgear Genie Smart Setup page. If the page doesn’t open, enter “mywifiext.net” (without quotes here and in subsequent commands) in the browser’s address bar. Type “admin” in the Username field and “password” in the Password field to open the page.
Select your Wi-Fi network and click “Continue.” Enter your network’s password in the PassPhrase box, and then click “Continue.”
Enter a new name for the extender’s Wi-Fi network in the “2.4GHz Network Name (SSID)” box, and then click “Continue.” Select the “Use the Same Security Mode” check box to apply the security settings that your current Wi-Fi network uses to the extender’s Wi-Fi network.
Connect all of your computers and wireless devices to the extender’s new Wi-Fi network.
