Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
Set Up the Repeater
Use a wired Ethernet connection to set up the repeater unit to avoid conflicts with the WiFi connection to the base
If you are using the router as the base station with a non-NETGEAR router as the repeater, you might need to change
more configuration settings. In particular, disable the DHCP server function on the access point that is the repeater.
To set up a NETGEAR router as the repeater:
Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
A login window opens.
Enter the router user name and password.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
The BASIC Home page displays.
Select Wireless.
The Wireless Setup page displays.
Verify that the WiFi settings match the base unit exactly.
For you to use the WiFi repeating function, the WiFi security option must be set to None and the router cannot
use the auto channel feature. However, if you want to use security, the only type of security that is supported
with the WiFi repeating function is WEP legacy security, which requires the 2.4 GHz radio band to function in
the Up to 54 Mbps mode.
Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Wireless Repeating.
The Wireless Repeating Function page displays.
Select either the Enable Wireless Repeating Function (2.4GHz b/g/n) check box or the Enable Wireless
Repeating Function (5GHz a/n/ac)
 check box.
Manage the WiFi Network Settings
