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

How to set up netgear ex6100 wifi range extender


Overview:
This article describes how to set up a NETGEAR EX6100 in Extender Mode
The extender connects wirelessly to your existing WiFi network, and then it creates a new WiFi extended network and links the two WiFi networks.
Symptoms:
Cannot connect to extender
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT
Extender broadcasting EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT
Extender cannot access Internet or network
Process:
1. Place your extender in the same room as your WiFi router.
2. Plug the extender into an electric outlet and wait one minute.The PowerLED lights green.
If the Power LED does not light, press the Power button on the side.
3. Make sure that the mode switch on the extender is set to Extender.
4. Use a WiFi network utility on a computer or mobile device to find and connect to the EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT or EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT (SSID) WiFi network.
Note: EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT and EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT are the default name of your extender's wireless networks, and by default it is unsecured. If you changed the wireless name or security in the past, connect to the new name or enter the passphrase when prompted. EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT is only visible if your wireless adapter is 5 GHz capable.
After the wireless connection with the computer or mobile device is established, the Client Link LED lights solid green.
5. Open a web browser window from the same computer or mobile device.The browser takes you directly to NETGEAR genie Smart Setup.
Note: If you are not automatically directed to NETGEAR genie, launch an Internet browser and type www.mywifiext.net in the address field of the browser. Enter admin for the user name and password for the password.
6. Select a 2.4GHz WiFi network to extend and click the Continue button.
7. Type the network passphrase (also called password or security key) in the Passphrase field and click the Continue button.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 to select a 5GHz WiFi network.
Note: If your router does not support the 5GHz band, click the Skip button.
9. Select Private Network(home network) or Public Network radio button, and click Continue.
Note: Selecting Public Network will enable NAT and DHCP on the EX6100. For more info on NAT refer to: What is NAT (Network Address Translation)?
10. Type the name (SSID) for your WiFi extended network in the 2.4GHz and 5GHz Network Name (SSID) field and click the Continue button.
Note: You can use the same security settings as your existing network by selecting the Use the same security mode check box.
The WiFi extended network settings are applied.
11. Use a WiFi network manager on a mobile device or computer to connect to the extenders newly created WiFi network.
12. Click on the check box and click on Continue to finalize the installation.
13. Unplug the extender and move it to a new location closer to the area with a poor WiFi signal.
Note: The location you choose must be within the range of your existing WiFi router network.
14. Plug the extender into an electrical outlet and wait one minute. The Power LED lights green. Connect to the extender network and enjoy the extended Wifi network.

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.

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.
