Wifi extender setup


Wifi extender setup

Hi - I just had a major power outage due to a natural disaster. My extender reset and I was using the online tool to get it up and running when suddenly it just shut down and I can't get back to it. I can't connect to the internet now, the wifi is there but it says my password is wrong! I did not change the password, not even in my recent setup. I tried power cycling the extender but it's not working. Help!

Re: Wifi extender setup

Which Netgear model is this?


Have you tried to reset it to factory defaults?


There is a chance that the power outage killed the thing. There may have been some nasty voltage spikes on the mains that wrecked the adapter. If you have a spare lying around you could try that.


Just another user with a set of boilerplate macros.

My network DM200 -> R7800 -> GS316 -> PL1000 -> Orbi RBR40 -> Orbi RBS50Y -> RBS40V
