Netgear Extender Setup
Netgear Extender setup is the best approach to improve your present WiFi range and performance. While a standard router has enough range to serve a small home or apartment with wifi, it may not be able to cover a larger property. As a result, there will be dead zones in larger homes where you won’t be able to access any internet service. A WiFi range extender can help you to resolve this situation. Once you have completed the Netgear extender setup, it takes your router’s current WiFi signals and rebroadcasts them across your home, providing you with WiFi in every room.
Mainly there are only two methods to do Netgear Extender Setup which are as follows:
- Manual Setup (Web browser setup).
- Wireless protected Setup (WPS).
