WN3000RPv3, got new BT HUB and can’t get it to work now

Hi, I’ve got a new BT hub and now I can’t get my NETGEAR extender to work. The wps light and power button light comes on but the top two lights, the router link light and the client link light are not responding at all. Please help

Is the BT Hub using the same network name and passphrase as your old router?

I've never been a fan of WPS myself.

 

You could

  • Reconfigure the hub to match your old network and passphrase
  • Connect to the extender wifi (or ethernet).  Browse to mywifiext.net and manually change the router connection name and password.
  • Reset the extender, and set it up again from scratch
