Question about Computers & Internet
I have green light for on and a green light for status. I can't get either PC to connector or link rate lights. Now what can I do.
Not knowing to much about this unit and based on what a quick search told me, this should (i Hope) be your fix.
On the side of the unit you have a cable connection this cable connection needs to connect to a router or at least to whatever cable box you are using for the network. Be advised that this ius simply a range extender, meaning that it will provide very low security from hackers, it's job is to extend the range and area of the router which does most of the work for you.
You will need to find a spot for the range extender, place it where you want then measure the3 distance to the modem. That's the length of cable you will need, Plug the CAT5 cable into the modem/router and the other end into the range extender and wait five minutes. You should be good to go then.
Hope this helps.

Doesn't look like your router/modem supports WPS, here is the manual. http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/2701HG_user_guide.pdf
I would check your Range extender model because some allow for a wired configuration
Here is a How To, to configure the extender via cable and utility http://support.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/41

NETGEAR_EXT is the name or SSID of the extender. ie Netgear EXTender ;-]
What you need to do is first search for available wireless networks. It should show up there as NETGEAR_EXT if it is running and far enough away from your wifi.
Then open your web browser which should then open the connection wizard . If not you can try www.mywifiext.net. If you can't see it you may need to connect to it using a wire so you can set it up. sometimes if it is really messed up you may need to reset it to factory default.

For that you need to check WAN settings and also make sure local ip settings gateway should be your router ip address. Make sure WAN settings are fine connect internet cable to WAN port of router. Then check. You can configure router with below method. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then configure wan settings and lan settings enable wireless if you want to use wifi Then save settings and restart router Then connect cable from internet service provider to WAN port of router and connect ethenet lan cable from computer to lan port of router. . Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

These are a huge pain and I would recommend returning it and buying a Devolo dLan Wireless extender since they can self-configure. If you insist on using the device you have, try these steps:
1. Reset Primary Router to have NO SECURITY (you should be automatically disconnected). Don\'t just reset to factory defaults! If your ISP requires specific router configuration to connect, resetting would erase all of those settings. Simply open the router config site and remove Wireless Security. The best way to know is to Google your Router and Model for configuration instructions.
2. Reset Extender to Factory Defaults.
3. Plug Extender in (if not already done)
4. Connect the PC to the ROUTER (which should have NO security at this time)
5. Confirm that you have connection to the Internet, as well as any network devices.
6. If #5 failed;
6.a. Make sure the old wireless connection (manage connections) has been deleted.
6.b. Close all Network Configuration windows (don\'t know if this matters, but sometimes the refreshed list refused to update with new config settings without this step).
6.b. Scan for available wireless connections.
6.c. Keep doing 6.a and 6.b until the correct wireless connection is shown. In my case, I kept getting "Cielo Secured" instead of "Cielo Unsecured" (or vice versa).
6.d. When the list shows the correct connection and security setting, select it to connect to the router.
6.e. Return to Step #5
7. Now you\'re back to essentially where you were to start, sans security. Close all Internet Explorer pages.
8. Open Wireless Connections again, and disconnect from the Primary Router, and connect to the Extender. If your wireless connection list is showing conflicting Extender and Security information, follow Step #6 until it\'s correct.
9. Open Internet Explorer. You should automatically be thrown into the Extenders Auto Configuration wizard. Follow the Wizard instructions until it\'s finished. When it shows the security settings, make sure that it\'s set to NONE.
10. Once the wizard is done, and you\'ve clicked on the "finished connecting" button in the Extender config, make sure you save the Bookmark as suggested - you\'ll need that later when you add security. Now, check your wireless status.
Hopefully it will show "Internet", not the pesky "Limited Connectivity". Open the Network & Sharing screen to verify there is no dreaded Red "X" between your Extender and the Internet. It may take a few minutes for the Internet status to update.
11. If Step #10 failed, start from Step #1 again, making sure that each device has been configured with NO SECURITY.
12. If Step #10 was successful, take a moment to step back and perform a 2 or 3 minute Chicken Dance in honor of the Computer Gods. .... Or, maybe not. If nothing else, at this point you\'ve proven the Extender will work, even if unsecured.
13. Now, go through Steps 4 through 12. This time, though, configure the Router to the security level you wish.
14. Since we\'ve already configured the Extender once, use the Bookmark saved in Step #10 to re-open the Extender configuration site. Click on "Exit" when it opens if it wants to run the Wizard again. It may also guide you through updating the firmware if that\'s necessary. Let that finish before continuing.
15. MANUALLY configure the Extender by first selecting "Connect to Existing Network". If all things are set correctly, it will eventually ask you for the security key for your Router. Enter and continue.
16. This time, when it\'s done, it should have updated the configuration for BOTH devices using the Network Key you just entered. You should see an updated Extender security setting summary screen. Re-connect to the Extender (wait for the status to show Connected, then click on the button at the bottom. The Extender Status screen should be displayed.
17. Open the Network and Sharing screen to confirm there is still no Red "X" between your network and the Internet.
18. If Step #17 was successful, open Internet Explorer and confirm you can access the web. Yippee!!
19. If Step #17 failed, then the auto-config screwed up again. Click on "Wireless Settings", and manually configure the Extender to match what you set on the Router. Return to Step #17 to confirm that resolved the issue.
Fair warning, this will take a long time to accomplish. Netgear in my opinion is the worst brand on the market for wireless!
