Net gear N300 range extender

If the n300 will not connect to an I-pad2, why doesn't the doc say so?

Re: Net gear N300 range extender

Hi @oldguy308,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

1. Do you already have the extender setup (connected to your main router)?

2. Do you have other devices connected to the extender?

3. The iPad should be able to connect to the extender.

4. Can the iPad connect to the main wireless network (router)?

 

Regards,

Re: Net gear N300 range extender

I gave up on an n300 trying to connect to the IPad, and even tried an ac750 with WPA2 encrypt, and the Ipad still refuses to connect. Even at a distance of one foot!  Meanwhile 30 feet away, my android phone connects up instantly and works fine.  Is Apple software excluding non-Apple gear?  Seems like it.
