EX7300 is not broadcasting NETGEAR_EXT


EX7300 is not broadcasting NETGEAR_EXT

I'm trying to setup this extender.


The extender is not broadcasting, per this instruction:

"To connect with WiFi, on your WiFi-enabled device, open the WiFi connection manager and locate and connect to the extender network called NETGEAR_EXT."



I'm unable to access the URLs as stated in this instruction, as well.

"Launch a web browser.

Enter mywifiext dot net or in the address field of the browser.
The New Extender Setup page displays."


Help! 🙂

Re: EX7300 is not broadcasting NETGEAR_EXT

did you already try setting it up using wps? 

What many don't understand is that its a mesh extender and when you set it up using wps, it by default uses the same ssid as the router. So it doesn't show up seperate. 

I've seen several people try setting up using wps and not think its working because it doesn't show as seperate. 


You could also try hardwiring a pc/laptop into it and connecting to it that router to see if its already setup. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
