Hi -- I called recently, I'm case # 60951. I have a model Hwdn1 extender. I was unable to set it up with my netgear router, even though the router settings are g/b, even after reseting it various times with the person on the phone and entering .235 and .240 ip addresses to test it. I'm ready to take the thing back next week but if someone can offer me some ideas or solutions I'm willing to try one more time. Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello, my name is Glenn, I am not familiar with wireless signal boosters, but I have a great idea on how to set up networks and multiple routers in 1 network. How I picture a wireless signal booster to work is to plug in from your netgear router, into the Edimax.
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. Or read http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/20912
you can simply go to that computer , which is connected hard wired to the netgear router...
Open up a web page(internet explorer or Mozilla firefox )
In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 or www.routerlogin.com.
It will ask for username & password...
Username : admin
On the left hand side(blue panel)
Wireless settings --
You will see ur SSID & passphrase there...
In case of any other assistance u can ravert back to me....
-- you can connect the Xe102 to he wall plug where ur router is placed
-- And then reset it from the reset hole on the back of the Xe102
-- and after that connect the WGX102 to the other wall plug where u wanna get wireless access ..
-- And then reset it from the reset hole on the back of the WGX102 as well
-- And once u do that it will not ask for a security key .
-- It will show netgear unsecured
-- try to connect with it and u will be connected
Assuming that the WG602 is fully operational, when you did a hard reset, the router reverted to its original factory setting as you posted. The default pre-configuration: act as a DHCP client; if the WG602 does not find a DHCP server on the Ethernet LAN, it defaults to this IP configuration:
DHCP Client - Enable
IP Address ? 192.168.0.227
IP Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0
Gateway ? 0.0.0.0
Your PC need to be connected via a LAN cable to one of the Ethernet ports of the AP/Router to be able to configure it again to your desired network settings. Further it is necessary likewise to manually configure the connected PC's networking configuration to match the router. Manually configure your PC's IP Address to 192.168.0.228, Subnet Mask ? 255.255.255.0, Gateway - 192.168.0.227.
You can now try configuring the router through its web interface (192.168.0.227).
This is better explained in the user's manual available at the Netgear site (
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
