AC1900 Netgear EX7000 Setup

Netgear provides more than a couple of options to set up extender devices. The options include WPS configuration, web browser-based setup, and app-based configuration methods. Additionally, Netgear also provides a smart setup option to users which is quite similar to a web browser-based configuration process.

The WiFi-protected setup (WPS) method is the easiest and quickest one. You can finish the complex Netgear EX7000 setup process within 5 minutes by using this method. However, some users may experience certain difficulties while indulging in this setup process. Thus, here we are sharing the complete Netgear extender setup details.

WPS One-Touch Configuration Method Steps

Before getting into the setup process, check if your router has a WPS button on it. Without WiFi-protected setup functionality in the router, you cannot perform the setup using WPS. Also, see if you have an active internet supply in the router from your ISP. Once ensured, move ahead with the following steps:

  • Connect the power adapter of the Extender to an active electrical socket.
  • Power on your Netgear Extender model.
  • Ensure your router is powered on as well and functioning optimally.
  • Locate the WPS button at your extender’s rear panel or the bottom of the device and then push it. (the location of the WPS button varies depending on the device mode.)
  • Press the WPS button on your router within the next 2 minutes.
  • Wait for a few seconds for the WPS LED to get stable and turn green.

After completing all these steps, if you notice a solid green WPS LED on the extender and a stable Device Link LED on the router, the AC1900 Netgear EX7000 setup is completed successfully. Take advantage of extended whole-home internet connectivity now all around your home.

In case the WPS setup fails, you should try it again or use another Netgear setup method. Or you can simply opt for our remote technical support which is the most appropriate option you have.
