Nighthawk X4S AC2200

Hello... if anyone can help.


I just purchased this product today, and am getting a solid blue power light, I am getting a solid blue wifi light, but when I go through the setup process on my Windows based laptop, it does not show the Netgear as an option to select.


Does anyone know how to resolve this, or have seen it before?

Re: Nighthawk X4S AC2200

You have the ex7500? 

did you try setup via wps? If you set it up via wps, its default setup mode is using the "onessid" feature. Meaning it'll have the same ssid as the router and let your devices roam between them automatically. 


What router are you connecting it to? 

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