Netgear Extender Setup Via WPS
Netgear Wi-Fi Extenders are the easiest and fastest way to boost the range of your existing Wi-Fi.
- The first step in this process is to Unbox your Wi-Fi Extender
- Then plug the extender into an electrical outlet.
- To complete the setup process smoothly, we recommend you to plug in the Wi-Fi Extender in the same room as of your router.
- For this process, you need to check if your router supports a WPS setup. Look for the WPS button on the front or back depending upon your router.
- If you find a WPS button on your router, press and hold for a few seconds to turn it on.
- Our Wi-Fi Extender has a WPS LED, this light indicates the connection of your Wi-fi Extender 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 you wish 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 your Wi-Fi Extender.
- The extender uses your existing Wi-Fi name. However, it adds “_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.

- Or you can go for the Wi-Fi method to connect. On your Wi-Fi enabled device, open the Wi-Fi connection manager and locate and connect to the Wi-Fi extender network called NETGEAR_EXT.
