We know that you have reset your Netgear WiFi range extender, but restarting is the different process.

  • Keep EX3110 unplugged for 15-30 minutes.
  • Plug in the extender back in again.

Remember that, connection between your Netgear extender and your host router is very important if you want to reconnect to the extender’s WiFi after resetting. So, once you are done with completing the Netgear extender reset process, connect it with your host router right away.

You can connect your Netgear EX6110 extender and router using two source:

  • First is using the wired (Ethernet) source
  • Second is using wireless (WPS) source

In Ethernet source, you have to take an Ethernet cable and then connect its one end in your host router and the other end in your EX3110.

In wireless source, press the WPS button on your EX3110 and then press the WPS button on your host router.

If you are still having issues connecting to Netgear_ext, then we suggest you change its current location. While changing the extender’s location, ensure to change the location of your host router as well. Also, you must avoid placing the devices in a corner or back of any device.
