I found that if some devices used the Router's SSID while other Devices used the WN3000RP's SSID, the Network would lock up.
But when I made sure all wireless devices used the WN3000RP's SSID only, the lock up's went away.

Before doing the setup, I would also suggest if you could perform factory reset on the unit. While it is plugged in, kindly press and hold the reset button for a minute then unplug it from the power outlet and plug it back after 30 seconds.
1. Once the Extender is powered on and the Status LED is green, on your wireless PC, try to connect to NETGEAR_EXT (SSID) wireless network. After the connection with the PC is established, the PC to Extender LED turns green. Next, you need to connect the Extender to your existing Wi-Fi network.
2. Open a web browser window from the same PC, and the browser should take you directly to the on-screen setup guide. Or, you can always access the Extender settings by typing www.mywifiext.net in your browser URL bar
3. The web browser setup guide walks you through the following steps:
• Selecting the Wi-Fi network you would like to extend.
• Entering the security passphrase for the existing network. (Please make sure to enter your wireless security key properly). If your wireless security key is under WEP, please put this information on the Key 1 box and not on the Passphrase box. If its under WPA/WPA2, kindly just enter it on the Passphrase box.
• Choosing the name for your new Extender network. After this process, it will then ask you now to connect on your new extender's wireless network
• Connecting your wireless devices to your new Extender network.
4. Once your computer is successfully connected to your new extender's network, kindly complete the setup and check if you could establish a connection this time.

Could you simply give the access point the same SSID as the router?
I lose wireless on the access point after a day or so, yet the router wireless is still OK. Been a bear trying to figure out why.

I want to thank you for your instructions that you posted.
I spent the entire day yesterday trying to get my WN3000RP configured on my wireless network.
After reading your posts, I started again, using your instructions.
I was able to get all my laptop computers, Wii and Sony Blu-Ray with Netflix up and operational using the extender in very short order.
Now, I have internet access from the far end of the house using my I-Pad2.
I, like many, have been frustrated with little or no access when you get to far from the main router.
Good Job Grasshopper!! You done good!
