Netgear Wireless-N Wi-Fi Range Extender

Holy moly this thing was a pain to setup, but I think it’s actually working now. Nothing some manual IP setting and Firmware file renaming couldn’t fix. Wheee!

I bought this initially for my in-laws home so I didn’t pull it out of the box until last week… I was totally unable to use “method 1” (WPS), notably becuase the button didn’t seem to work. “Method 2” was also a bust becuase I could not keep the laptop connected to the netgear_ext long enough to configure it. When I finally timed it just right and long enough to see an admin login screen, the credentials from the manual were incorrect.

What did you do to connect yours?
