Hi To666ny,

 

Are both your EX2700 connected to each other or the router? http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24801/~/what-is-a-wireless-extender%3F

Which router are you using?

Also, how have you named your EX2700 SSID?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Regards,

NhanN

Have you tried connecting your devices to the EX2700 via ethernet?

How is the connection when placing the EX2700 near the router?
Can you also try factory resetting the router?

I am having a similar issue - two ex2700 extenders and a router. Is that feasible? What was the resolution if any? Thanks.

Hi rw28658,

 

Yes, it's possible to pair multiple extenders to a router.
Please note, that it is not recommended to daisy chain the extenders:
http://kb.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/24801/~/what-is-a-wireless-extender%3F

 

"Range extenders are not designed to be daisy-chained. You can use multiple extenders but their main source of wireless connection must be the same. You cannot connect an extender to another extender's wireless network."
