Thank you for the reply. I have read the installation guide, but my router does not have the WPS, so I tried Option 2 but I don't see it on my PC or maybe I don't know where to look for it on my PC with Windows 7.

✔ Best Answer

There should be a small icon in the systray for the wireless network connection.
A leftclick with the mouse should bring up the available wireless networks.
There you have to choose the network, described in the installation manual, to connect to it. After that, you have to make the configuration manually.

I HAVE BOUGHT 2 OF THESE EXTENDERS AND I CANNOT GET EITHER ONE TO WORK. I NOW HAVE SPENT 2 DAYS WITH THE NETGEAR SUPPORT ENGINEERS (4 HOURS 1 DAY) AND (3 HOURS LASTNIGHT) AND BOTH ENGINEERS SAY THAT BOTH OF MY EXTENDERS ARE BAD. I HAVE RAN THROUGH THE SETUP MANY TIMES BUT AFTER THE LAST STEP IT TELLS ME TO MOVE THE EXTENDER CLOSER TO THE ROUTER. I DONT THINK I CAN MOVE IT ANY CLOSER THAN WHAT IT IS TODAY. I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING POSSIBLE. WHAT DO YOU GUY'S DO TO MAKE THESE WORK???????

First off, typing in all capitals is hard to read and online, it's considered yelling. So in the future, please try not to.

If both of the netgear support people you spoke with agreed that your extenders are bad, the only answer is to take them in and have them replaced. You can't make something that's broken work. If they're still covered by warranty this shouldn't be a problem.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
