Netgear Extender Setup through WPS Method.


If you have just purchased Netgear Extender Setup for your home or office. Then you must be looking for an easy procedure for Netgear Extender Setup. Read the Step by Step guide for this process here.



 


                You can set up your Wi-Fi device through the WPS method using the following step by step guide. 


  • First and foremost, you have to start with unboxing your device. 
  • Now connect your router to a power supply outlet. 
  • It will be better for the process if you place the Wi-Fi extender and the router at the same place. 
  • The WPS button is an inevitable part of this process, so you need to check if the router supports a WPS button or not. 
  • To get this WPS button you can check either on the front or back of your router. However, the location varies from model to model. 
  • After you find the WPS button on your router device, press and hold for a few seconds to turn it on. 
  • The Wi-Fi Extender has a WPS LED, this light indicates the connection of your Wi-FiExtender to the Router
  • If the Router has successfully been connected to your Wi-Fi Extender, the WPS LED on your Wi-Fi Extender will turn solid green.  
  • Check if your Router Wi-Fi supports the 5GHz band. If yes, and you want to extend this band repeat the WPS process one more time. 
  • Now, unplug the extender. You can now move it to a new location. 
  • This new location should preferably be halfway from both your Router and the device that you to connect. 
  • Keep in mind that this location should be within the reach of your Wi-Fi Router. 
  • Plug the extender in this new location and turn the Power on. 
  • Wait for the extender to switch on properly.
  • The Router link LED that is present on your Wi-Fi Extender will tell you the status of your connection with the router. 
  • If the light is amber or green you have found an ideal location for your extender. 
  • If the light is still red, try shifting the device more towards the range of the router. 
  • This enhances your Wi-Fi Extender’s connectivity with the Router. 
  • Set your device in an ideal location. Now, bring the device that you wish to connect close to the Wi-Fi Extender. 
  • The extender uses your existing Wi-Fi name. However, it will add “_2GEXT” or “_5GEXT” to the existing name in the end. 
  • Click on the connect icon, and you will be asked to enter your password.
  • Your password is just the same as your Wi-Fi. Enter that and don’t forget to choose the auto-connect option for further use.
  • Also, connect a mobile device with the Wi-Fi Extender
  • Now take this mobile device to a previously dead zone. 
  • Once your devices are connected and placed in the dead zone, return to your Wi-Fi Extender. 
  • Check the Client Link LED. 
  •  If it is Green or amber your Wi-Fi network has been properly extended. 
  • Congratulations! You can now enjoy your Wi-Fi Network with seamless internet speed.
