How to Setup Netgear Extender as Access Point?
1. Make an Extender-Router Connection
Start the process by establishing a connection between the Netgear extender and the router in your home. Rather than using a wireless source, it is advised that you put an Ethernet cable to use. The reason being, it is more reliable as compared to a wireless medium.
To pair the devices via a cable, see to it that the ports on them are clean. In case they are not, clean them using a cotton swab. Once you have cleaned the ports, join the networking devices by plugging the cable into each port.
Just so you do not face issues in the future, see to it that the distance between the devices is not much. Otherwise, you will come across technical issues that will prevent you from accessing Piso WiFi in a hassle-free manner.
2. Time to Turn On the Wireless Devices
Plug the router into a wall socket first. Once done, locate and press the power button on it. Now, wait for some time. The color of the power LED will soon become green. Once it does, plug the extender into the socket and power it on. At last, power up the Piso WiFi device.
3. Connect the Client Device to the Network
The next step in line is to create a connection between the client device, i.e. the computer or the laptop with the network of the Netgear range extender. For this, you need to walk through the instructions that have been highlighted here:
- Open the WiFi utility on your client device.
- Locate the SSID or in other words, the network name of the extender.
- The network name of the extender by the way is Netgear_ext.
- In order to connect to it, entering the password is very important.
Though you will easily be able to connect the client device to the device with ease, by any chance, you fail to do so; it is recommended that you use a cable for the same. Just ensure that cable does not have any cuts on it.
4. Access the Extender’s Web User Interface
As soon as your client device has internet access, you ought to log in to the Netgear extender. The same can be done if you first get access to a cache-free web browser and go to its address bar or URL field, as some people like to call it.
Enter mywifiext.net in there and press the Enter key in order to land on the login portal. Once the window shifts, you will be asked to fill in the login username and password. Enter the required ones and hit Log In to proceed further.
Now, you ought to access the Settings menu of your extender. Go to the Wireless Settings option. Once done, select Connection Type as Dynamic IP. Now, you will locate the Network Name field. There, you need to select LPB Piso WiFi SSID.
What Needs to Be Done Now?
Enter the password and click the Save button. Select the operation type. As soon as that is done, go back to the WiFi settings on the client device which you are using. Now, you need to access the Piso WiFi network. Once done, make your way to the following step:
- Select Advanced Settings > Network.
- Disable the DHCP Server.
- Click the Save button and wait.
Soon, your settings will get saved. Now, you ought to disconnect the Netgear wireless range extender from the host router. Once done, make a connection between the extender and Piso WiFi. And with that, you are done learning what you came here for. By the way, if you want to pause the internet connection, simply visit the 10.0.0.1 IP address.
