Moving WPS connected wall plug Netgear extender


Moving WPS connected wall plug Netgear extender

I have just connected my wall-plugged Netgear extender to my new modem via WPS successfully. I have placed the extender halfway between where my modem is and where the area with the poor wifi connection is. I am wondering if, now that it is connected, can I move it to the area where the poor wifi is? Or will it disconnect?

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the WiFi Extender products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with WiFi Extender (EA and EAX Series) products. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:

Re: Moving WPS connected wall plug Netgear extender

the problem with wifi extenders is they still need a signal to pickup and rebroadcast. If you move it to where there isn't a signal, it has nothing to pick up. Its why its usually recommended to be halfway between the router and the area you want to cover. 

Where should I place my NETGEAR Wi-Fi range extender? | Answer | NETGEAR Support
