Can you connect together two netgear nighthawk extenders ex7300?

Hello,

I have been setting up an internet infrastructure at home.

I ran an ethernet cable to the first netgear nighthawk ex7300 (in access mode). I'm trying to connect the 2nd nighthawk as an extender without much luck.

Does anybody know if this is possible?

Any other suggestions if not possible?

Thank you!

What sits between the EX7300 and the Internet? Modem/gateway? Router?

 

Does the EX7300 work as it should?

Connect to what? The first EX7300? Something else on the network?

 

Connect how? Wired (AP mode) or WiFi (bridge mode)?

 

While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

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

You might like to search there for messages related to your problem.

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.

Check for various troubleshooting tips.

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.
