If you find that your Netgear WiFi Extender not working, what will you do? Do you have any plans to check the problem(s)? If not, then you should have one because the problems originating in extenders can’t be solved until you have a concrete plan against them.
Now, your extender is not working, so the first thing you need to check whether the power supply point is OK. If it is, then you should check if the wire connected to the power supply point, and your extender is fine. If that is also working normally, then there you should move onto the next step.
The next step will be to check if the extender is connected to the router properly. There are two methods by which, you can connect your extender to the router. The first method involves pressing the WPS button on both the router and extender at the same time. This connects both devices wirelessly. Then, there is a traditional way of connecting your extender to the router, i.e., by using an Ethernet cable.
Once you have connected both the devices, then you can connect the extender to the computer using an Ethernet cable or through Wi-Fi.
