Setup process:

Setting up a Netgear device has a similar process for all its Range Extender. The process is fairly easy and can be done in a number of ways. You can choose to continue this process using the Wireless medium; however, it is recommended that you continue to do so using a wired connection. The setup process can be continued via a couple of methods; either by using a WPS to connect the devices or by using the admin page to connect the device to the Wi-Fi router. Since using the page to connect the device will let you check and thoroughly set up every inner working of the device better. Before that, we will first start with powering on the device.

  • To do that, Place your range extender close to your Wi-Fi router first for the setup process.
  • Plug your Range extender into a power source to power it on.
  • Wait for your range extender to show you a solid green LED light.
  • If the Power LED doesn’t light up, Press down On/Off button on the device.

For the initial setup, follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Use a PC or Laptop to find the wireless SSID of the device or connect to the device using an Ethernet cable.
  • Once you see the network connection to your PC or Laptop successfully, open a web browser.
  • We would now be required to go to admin page to launch the installation assistant.
  • Continue with New Extender Setup process and head over to the Create a new account option.
