connect wifi extender wn3000rp to cable modem cg3100D-2bpaus

Once I connect the wifi extender to the modem using wps I am  unable to connect any device to either the original router network name or the extender network name.

To access internet after this I must turn off the extender and reset the modem then rerun the setup disk.

Can anyone tell what I am doing wrong, please?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Hi milson.
I did the same thing.
Once it is connected via wps. It changes the network to wps. This means when you now want to connect a computer or laptop you must press the wps key on either the router or extender (depending which you are connecting it to).
As far as I am aware phones and tablets and gaming consoles aren't wps compatible, for these devices you need to login to the modem, go to wifi settings and down the bottom is the new wireless key. It will be a mixture of number and letters around 15 characters long.

Let me know how you go.

Wes,

I am sending this over my new wifi Internet connection.

Thanks for your help.

Its a pity the installation guide wasn't as useful as your advice.

Cheers
