Can't Connect to Netgear Range Extender Kit

I recently got a wireless connection for my laptop (through Verizon FIOS). I purchased a Netgear Range Extender Kit which includes the XE102 and the WGX102. I've attempted to connect the Netgear bridges however, I don't have a passkey or any other information to type in sp I can get the extender kit up and running. I bought the kit off of Ebay and it didn't come with the instruction/manual CD.
How can I set the sytem up to where I can use it?
Thanks for the assist

HOW DO I CONNECT MY EXTENDER THROUGH WIFI


It need to be wire connected to another router, once it has an IP you can access the device with a web browser and configure wireless access pretty much with the same information as your actual wireless access point, same network ID and key.

I have one netgear wifi WN3000NP extender installed, works great, I am trying to hook up another one in my garage upstairs floor, can't seem to connect it? Can I have more than one?


I'm not an expert on these but from what I read I think it very unlikely that you will get 2 working successfully at the same time. I would be more inclined to use a home plug network extender (500mbs standard) there are many makes. These carry the network over your mains wiring.
for example (but there are many others) NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps Adapter Starter Kit XAVB5201

Your connection is limited


What router and where is it that you are connecting the Extender to? An extender is not a router. You need a router to extend the wifi signal from.

I can not gem=t my WN2500RP to connect to my Netgear Router


To properly set up the WN3000RP you first have to push the WPS or Push 'N' Connect button on the router-WN2500RP(on the back of the router between the reset and the wired connection slots) and then the Push 'N' Connect button on the extender. It should negotiate and establish a connection between them.

Have you first established the connection between the Router and the Extender?
If so, have you connected e.g. a laptop to the Extender?
So if your WLAN networks SSID is NETGEAR, the WLAN network of the Extender is NETGEAR_EXT and you have to connect the laptop to NETGEAR_EXT.
Then you have to open your favorit internet browser and have to type in www.mywifiext.net, which I guess is a buildin Setup-Assistant.If this doesn't work, make sure, your laptop is configured, to get an ip address automatically via DHCP.

Connect belkin f5d7130 to homehub 1.5


You need to connect all pc's and homehub to a switch so they can talk to one another. Then use the AP as a wireless access point to connect all wireless laptops, and connect the AP to the switch with ethernet cable, and you have a network. Just make sure that only your HH or AP supplies IP addresses or they will clash.

For best results, you should connect it directly to the other router with an ethernet cable.
