Netgear WN2000RPT Setup Instructions

Maybe since I purchased a refurbished Netgear WN2000RPT it didn't come up with setup instructions but once I emailed support they quickly responded with the info below and it worked immediately.

Do this setup and your Netgear WN2000RPT range extender will work:


1. With the help of a paper clip, press the reset button on the back of the extender for 20 seconds (please refer to the label on the bottom of the extender for reset button location). Release the reset button after 20 seconds and turn off the extender. Turn the extender on after few seconds.
2. Connect the extender to the computer with an Ethernet cable. Make sure that there is no connection between your router and the computer either wired or wireless. (I did this part by turning off the antenna to my laptop)**I went to the Network and Sharing Center and on the left click on "Change Adapter Settings" after that right click on your Wireless Network Connection and choose "Disable". Don't forget to re-enable when you're done.
3. Open a browser to start the Smart Wizard. **I had to use Internet Explorer and compatibility mode
4. Please select your Preferred Language and click on continue.
5. Let the Extender detect the list of networks available in the locality.
6. Select your network and note down the security assigned for your network and click on continue
7. Type in the security key for your network,please note that if you have WPA security assigned on your network type the network key in passphrase box and if you have WEP security setup on your network type in the network key in the Key1 box and click on continue. **I've read elsewhere NOT to use WEP security with this extender.

(Read this one carefully)
8. Assign a name for the Extender as per your choice, also make sure that option "Use the Same security and passphrase as those for the existing network" is checked and then click on continue. **Under the step #3 Configure Extender I had to right click and refresh because there was no "continue" button!
9. Let the smart wizard establish the connection. On the next screen Click on the button "I have connected to the extender network" and click on continue.
10. Now click on the finish button to close the page.
11. It should ask you to save the page as bookmark, please save the page for future use.
12. Now open a new browser and check if you are online. (turn your antenna back on)**Re-enable your Wireless Network Connection.
13. You can now unplug the Ethernet cable from the extender and scan for the SSID of the extender and connect to it using the same network key as for you existing router.

Netgear WN2000RPT Setup

The most important part of the Netgear WN2000RPT setup is that you should NOT just plug it in and use the setup wizard. The setup does not make it clear what you should do when you get to the page with Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 & Key 4. If you follow the directions above which I got by emailing to ask about Netgear WN2000RPT setup then it will work the first time without any problem at all. Just read the Netgear WN2000RPT setup instructions above carefully first and then go through the step by step setup instructions slowly, one at a time and be sure you do exactly what it says. If you follow the directions above you will find that you can do your Netgear WN2000RPT setup without any problem at all.

Need More Help?

Need more help? Don't call me! I only know that this worked for me and it was super easy to follow the directions. I don't work for Netgear and I'm not really a techie.

Netgear wn2000 states mover closer to router?


This message means your extender is too far away from your wireless router to make a good connection. Repeaters must be within a good signal range for the connection to work properly.

If you have a wifi enabled phone, tablet, or laptop, you can walk around your home and see where the signal reaches and how well. Repeaters should be placed where you still receive full or close to full signal.

Repeaters may have issues if the wireless router is on another floor, behind metal, or too far away.

How do i change XP Pack 3 to Windows 7


Hi, you need to re-install the operating system (OS). If you need the back up, copy the files in your Desktop & My Documents (because these items are in C drive) to another drive. After that insert windows 7 CD in your drive & restart the machine. Press F12, it'll shows the boot order. Select CD drive. OR change the boot order in BIOS. After restarting It'll shows PRESS ANY KEY TO BOOT FROM CD. press any key & continue your job.

Warning : Pls make sure that you are installing the OS in to the 'C' drive, otherwise you will lost your back up.

I am trying to connect a wireless ready Samsung blueray player to my Motorola Surfboad and it says to press the wps button on the surfboad, where is it?


NOTE: [] & "button(s)" represent features on the remote controller. {} & "key(s)" represent features in on-screen menus.
=======================================================================

ROUTER INFO: WPS is on the SBG901.


BLU-RAY DISK PLAYER: You did not mention the model # of the Samsung Blu-ray disc player, so this information is somewhat generalized.

PREREQUISITE: Once you have attached Samsung's proprietary wireless adapter to that Blu-ray player, have connected that Blu-ray player to your TV, & have powered on that router & Blu-ray player & TV, access that Blu-ray player's initial settings menu.

STEP ONE: From the Home menu, press ?? buttons to select "Settings." Press [ENTER].
STEP TWO: Press ?? buttons to select "Network." Press [ENTER].
STEP THREE: Press ?? buttons to select "Network Settings." Press [ENTER].
STEP FOUR: Press ?? buttons to select "Network Type." Press [ENTER].
STEP FIVE: Instead of using the the "PBC (WPS)" selection, press ?? buttons to choose the "Wireless" selection & press [ENTER].
STEP SIX: Press ?? buttons to select "Internet Protocol Setup." Press [ENTER].
STEP SEVEN: Press ?? buttons to select "Auto" or "Manual." Press [ENTER].

IF SETTING UP WIRELESS CONNECTIVITY VIA AUTO NETWORK SEARCH: If you selected "Auto," press the ? button to go to "Access Point Selection." Press [ENTER]. Upon searching for available wireless networks, it will display those choices in a list.
A.) In the list of networks, press ?? buttons to select your network. Press [ENTER].
B.) IF "PIN/Security" DOES NOT POP UP, THEN SKIP THIS STEP; otherwise, press ?? buttons to select PIN or Security (Security Key--the usual option), & enter your network's Pass Phrase on the Security screen. (This Pass Phrase would be what you would use to access the network. IT SHOULD NOT THE PASSWORD WITH WHICH YOU SET UP YOUR ROUTER!)
Press number buttons on the remote to enter Pass Phrase numbers OR use arrow buttons on the remote to move from key to key in the Security Key screen. Change the type of on-screen accessible characters by moving to the on-screen {a/A/1/?} key & pressing [ENTER] on the remote. (The character set changes with each press of [ENTER]. Once displayed on the screen, you can enter a letter by pressing the number button on the remote which corresponds to that letter key. Pressing that button repeatedly changes the letter. You can move to {Delete} & press [ENTER] in order to remove the last character entered. You can move to {Clear} & press [ENTER] to clear all entered characters (or just press the red [(A)] button. When done, press the yellow [(C)} button (or the {Done} key followed by [ENTER]).
C.) WAIT UNTIL THE CONNECTION CONFIRMATION MESSAGE DISPLAYS & THEN PRESS [ENTER]. You're back at the Network Selection menu.
D.) To test the connection, press ? to select "Network Test." Press [ENTER].

IF YOU REQUIRE ASSISTANCE WITH SETTING UP THE WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION MANUALLY, I SUGGEST THAT YOU READ THE MANUAL (http://www.samsung.com/us/support/).
