Trying to Connect EX6100 as Access Point


Trying to Connect EX6100 as Access Point



I just bought a EX6100 extender and I am trying to connect it as an access point. I turned the swithch to access point and I connected my router an ARRIS-1142 to the extender through an ethernet cable. I plugged it in and everything looks great but once I go to my computer or mobile device to find for the WIFI netgear network and do not see them. I try it in two different location with a different cable connection and it did not work either. Does anyone has an idea why I can not see the network?

Hello Rinconvj


Have you tried to rename the SSID on the EX6100?
