Using extender doesn't make any difference | Help

Hello. I fully setup my Netgear Wifi Range Extender (model - EX6110, AC1200 Dual Band) and after I put it in a room where the wifi doesn't normally reach, all the LEDs lit up, and it showed that the connection with wifi and device was both good (green). But when using, it still makes no difference, I used to get little wifi in that room, and I'm still getting the same. I tried restarting, reconnecting, etc. and both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz give same connection as before. How do i fix this?

It is down to the wifi clients you have to connect to the best wifi source. Have you tried more than one?

 

What do you mean by "no difference"? How are you measuring it? Wifi speed? Signal strength?

 

What do you mean by "same connection as before"?

 

Not sure that I follow what is happening there.

 

Is the EX6110 using the same SSID as the router?

 

In other words, it is hard to diagnose what is going on with so little useful information about your local network.

 

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.
