Why can't i connect to

okay, nevermind throwing out the old router...we have a great new one, industrial strength! And we still have not dead zones, but not fully powered you can use the really works well, (even on not so strong wireless routers) once you get it set up that is...a little frustrating to say the least, it's not exactly plug and play, at least it wasn't for us.
Make sure you start by resetting to factory settings, just in case...get paper clip, unfold, stick one end into the reset hole for 6 seconds. Okay, now plug in...wait for the power light to come on first it is orange and then green. okay, now go to any computer or tablet...(you have to have a router that is wireless capable running of course) search for networks should see your regular router SSID (name here) now there should also be one called NETGEAR_EXT, that is the extender. double click on should ask you for username and password, well, is asking you for it which for the factory reset extender, should be admin for the username, and password for the password. It will ask you for the very same thing on the next screen! And you insist...type in admin for username, and the word password for the password, just like before you have to punch in the same info twice, on two different screens...and then presto! The extender control/info screen comes up! This is where you want to be! Now you have to fill in the information, and your hard work will be rewarded, the extender will be connected to the router (once you fill in the ACTUAL username for the router, and the password...what you would normally fill in for the actual router)
Then the extender will get the name of (yourROUTERNAME_EXT) happens is all good. Just be patient and let the screen apply the settings. When finished, look for networks to connect to, you will see yourROUTERNAME_EXT in the list. This means that now your wireless device can talk to the extender, which talks to the router. All three lights will be solid green (not flashing) on the extender.

Range Extender DWL-G710 & Wireless N Router DIR-615

Try to configure your new router and you have to reconfigure the Range extender to tally with the new router. The IP Address that the range extender should have should depend on the DHCP server of your router that provides the IP Address.

Connection of dlink range extender

I have this unit. Make sure that the network you are repeating is set to stay on a certain channel. The router I was repeating was set to dynamic channels so that it changed based on what channel had less interference. The dlink repeater does not like that and needs the channel to stay the same.

My extender isnt reading the connection tht my router is sending

Firstly I would check you have the latest firmware installed. Follow this link and select the correct revision as shown on the base of your unit. - the website also provides you with a little help on hardware tested that CAN be repeated. Please note if your hardware is not listed it does not mean it CAN'T be repeated, it just hasn't been tested.

Extender reboots my Netgear router

I would start with stripping ALL security and encryption settings, see if they work with basic IP addressing setup. Verify that the subnet address ranges are the same and that that the same IP schema is used (IPv4 vs IPv6) on both devices. Then make sure that the security settings are complementary to each other and not in conflict (opposite or identical). Then add the pair to the existing network and check antenna connections.

An alternative suggestion would be to install a Yagi type antenna on the Netgear DG834GT. This will give you a very long and useful range. A Yagi antenna can be made rather inexpensively using a coffee can (Google "coffee can Yagi antenna", I suggest the entry from, this gives a good lesson on the antenna and basic concepts).

No internet connection via DWL-G710

Your extender may not be able to talk to the router. Make sure you have set default gateway in extender to IP of the router. Turn off encryption first. Check the router if extender shows up in active client list or active mac address list.

Wireless G ranges expander

when using the range extender you have to make sure you set the SSID, channel & wireless key in the range extender the exact same as the router also it has to be in the same IP range so if the router IP address is the range extender IP address has to change from to once that is done restart the range extender and disconnect the ethernet cable & it the 2 lights should light up blue.

the IP address must be different on the router & extender but use the same subnet mast. The extender has to have the gateway set as the IP address on the router.
