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

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

I cannot connect my hg532 wifi range extender to my Echolife wn3000rp router


The HG532 is a broadband router, not wireless range extender.

So it will not connect up with another router.

You need to buy a range extender.

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.

You can't connect the range extender to the wireless router or you can't connect your wireless devices to the range extender?

If its the router what is the name and model of the router?

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.

Not able to connect the extender to my apple time capsule? no wps button. can i use this extender?


Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->> http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

I am trying to connect the wireless range extender wnr2000rpt. step 3 says have the computer outside the range of the regular router then after the extender is on connect to netgear_ext. ??? How in the...


The reason they tell you to get out of range of the _router_ at first is because the extender may assume the same name as the router so you may not be able to discern which is which. Also, a lot of laptops will automatically connect to the "old" signal, especially if the laptop hasn't connected to the extender for the first time yet. If you think about it, if you are out of range of the router and you plug in the extender, your computer will only see the extender, as long as you didn't get too far out of range of both.

Go to an area where your extender is between the router and your laptop or whatever computer. If you see 2 networks with the same name, connect to the strongest signal. If your router's name is "netgear" and the extender is "netgear_ext", connect to the netgear_ext.
