WN2500RP – Universal Dual Band WiFi Range Extender

Have everything set up and connected with both my Netgear Router and Extender.

The issue I am having is when I attempt to connect to the Extender with any device and enter the correct password to connect to the extended signal; I receive the following message: "Incorrect Password".

 

Please be clear that the password is correct! I am not entering a wrong password.

I believe it may be a DHCP/DNS issue but not sure.

 

Any advice would be appreciated. Have reset everything form scratch (factory settings etc). Updated to most recent firmware.

Not enough information to go on there. For example, is this WN2500RPv2 set up as a wireless extender or as a wireless access point?

 

You have posted your message in the section of this community given over to Nighthawk WiFi Routers. (This is easily done, given Netgear's complicated community structure.)

Many questions apply to different types of device, so there may be useful responses here, but you might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

WiFi Range Extenders & Nighthawk Mesh - NETGEAR Communities

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.
