AC1900 Wifi Mesh Extender - How to update Wifi Network ID & Password

Hi All!

I recently set up a new modem/router with a new wifi network ID & password. My issue is that my wifi mesh extender (Netgear) still has the old wifi network ID & password. How do I update the wifi mesh extended with my new wifi network ID & password?

 

Thanks,
David

Factory reset the extender and set it up using the installation assistant.

To factory reset, push and hold the reset button for 7-15 seconds while powered on. 

Here's a video of how to use the assistant.

Thanks. Is this the only way of doing the update?

Can I update it via a browser or my account instead?
