What is wireless protected setup?

Netgear wireless range extenders are best when it comes to increase the wifi range of our old wifi router. We get a consistent and strong wifi signal throughout our home with the help of Netgear wireless range extender. But, before using the Netgear wireless range extender at our home, we have to set it up first with our existing wifi router. We could setup the Netgear wireless range extender either manually orautomatically. we do not want to do it manually and want it to be automatic then, we certainly have to use the web browser setup to setup the Netgear wireless range extender.

WPS (Wireless protected setup)

Wireless protected setup is a great way to setup the Netgear wireless range extender automatically. We do not have to make a any settings or changes by our own but the Netgear wireless range extender will pickup the router settings automatically from the home wifi router itself. That means, the Netgear wireless range extender will pick up all the settings like the security type, the password, wifi network name automatically. We do not have to write it down by ourselves. As a result, we do not have to waste much our time.

Steps to follow while using WPS

While performing the wireless protected setup, we have to press the WPS button at the back of Netgear wireless range extender for threes seconds. Then, within two minutes of pressing that button, we also have to press the WPS button on our home router as well. But, we have to keep one thing in mind is that while performing the wireless protected setup the home router and the Netgear wireless range extender should be very close to each other or should be in the same room so, the settings could be applied easily.

Last step of WPS

After pressing the WPS buttons on the Netgear wireless range extender and the router, it will take two minutes to apply all the settings. After two minutes the Netgear wireless range extender will start working. The last step of the WPS would be placing the Netgear wireless range extender at a right location. We could not place the Netgear wireless range extender too close or far away from our home router. But, the Netgear wireless range extender should be placed midway from the point where our router is and the point where we wish to use the Netgear wireless range extender.
