Hello,
I purchased the latest range extender, but the password was not logged, so we cannot use the NetGear extender shown in the wireless network list.
What can I do?

There is a small pen sized hole on the back of the router. Use a ball point pen to press and hold down the reset button for a bout 15 seconds.

Use the following to set back up your security:

Configuring WPA/WPA2:



Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.

In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.

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
