The SSID of my Nighthawk Router and EX7300 Don't Match


The SSID of my Nighthawk Router and EX7300 Don't Match

My AC Nighthawk Range Extender was not getting recognized the list of networks so I used the factory reset thinking that would restore the necessary connections. I was wrong. Now the range extender IDs are listed as NETGEAR74_EXT and NETGEAR74-5G_EXT while the router shows up on the list as NETGEAR36 and NETGEAR36_5G. I tried logging in with the default password "password" to no avail. I also tried liinking to http://mywifiext.local, but all I get is  "DNS cannot be found."


FYI, I'm using an iMac running OSX 10.7.5.


Please tell me what I need to do to again sync the range extender to the same network as the router.


Thank you,


Charles Gambetta
