When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
Hi, you need to connect the extender directly into your desktop (disconnect internet from desktop first). Then open web browser which should bring up netgear page that allows you to set password. It's fairly self explanatory from there but I had to phone Netgear to work this one out. Cheers
