To install your Netgear Nighthawk mesh WiFi range extender as an AP (Access Point):

  2. Turn your range extender on by pushing the power button on it.
  3. Using an Ethernet cable, connect your existing WiFi router and your Netgear WiFi range extender with each other.
  4. Now, take a computer or laptop – load up an internet browser and type in its address bar.
  5. Tick on the New Extender Setup button.
  6. Create an account and tick on Next. If you already have an account then skip this step.
  7. Tick on Access Point and Netgear Nighthawk setup will verify your internet connection.
  8. Now, enter your existing WiFi router’s username and password.
  9. Tick on Next and your network settings will be applied shortly.
  10. Tick on Continue and your Netgear extender’s network settings will be displayed.

Do you have the login credentials handy with you? Do you still remember them? If the answer to these questions is in NO, then you have no option left then to reset your Netgear WiFi range extender back to its factory default values.

A factory reset will delete your default or personalized login credentials (username and password) network name (SSID), and the security settings. A factory reset process is important when you cannot recover your Netgear WiFi range extender’s admin name and password.

  2. After that, you have to locate the reset hole on your Netgear WiFi range extender.

  3. Now, use a pin or a paper clip and insert it carefully into the reset hole of your Netgear WiFi extender.
  4. Hold down the reset hole for 15-20 seconds and after that, release it.
