Hi,

Do you have a laptop? Did you disconnect the laptop from your wireless , and connect to the wireless network name called NETGEAR_EXT yet? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No I have a desktop. I am trying to get my ipad2 to work from where we sit at night. It acknowledges Mary_EXT but wont seem to lock in.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
How did you set the name to Mary_EXT? What happens when you connect to Mary_EXT? Is there any error message? Is the iPad able to connect to your wireless router (not extender)? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I connected the extender to the computer to get Mary_EXT. The ipad2 just shows a thing whirling around next to the name but doesn't fully connect up at the top. I am fairly new to the ipad but at Virgin Lounge in Melbourne connected to their free wifi without any trouble. No doubt the signal strength is greater there.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
OK, but is the iPad able to connect to your wireless router (not the extender)? What's the brand and model of your wireless router? thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As it has Mary_ext I didn't know how to change it to the router. My router is a Netgear N600 and the extender is a WN2000RPT.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
Can you go to the website http://www.routerlogin.net/ , or could be the website http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.0.1/, and login with:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
  • if it does not work, try password = 1234

Then click on the Wireless settings option to get your wireless network name and security key/passphrase , if any, then connect the iPad to that wireless network name? Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I will try that, thanks.
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
You're welcome; please let me know after trying. Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Well I loged in and had a look at all the settings, also added the iPad on to the list of the Sony Bravia TV. The SSIS name said Netgear-5G but that didn't work neither did the NETGEAR-Guest. What now??!!
Expert:  Viet - Network Tech replied 2 years ago.
From the Wireless settings option, can you change the wireless name (SSID) to something else that does not have the dash - or any special character and save, then check? Can you make sure the security mode/type is set to WPA2/WPA... and save and check? If needed, can you disable security and check? Thanks.
