Just purchased a EX6200AC1200. Router has WPS button. Extender

Customer Question

Just purchased a EX6200AC1200. Router has WPS button. Extender and router are sitting next to each other. Followed setup instructions and no steady green lights. Tried the Smart set up and reached a point where it suggested it was best to cancel installation. Went to www:routerlogin.net and com and it wouldn't let download the program.
Any suggestions?

Do you have a wireless laptop or tablet you can use to set up the extender? When the extender is powered on it will start broadcasting a wireless network called: NETGEAR_EXT. You will be able to see it on your wireless laptops, tablets or smartphones.
Once the network it detected, select it and click Connect. There is no password ***** this network. Once connected, open your internet browser and go to: www.mywifiext.net
This should connect you to the extender setup page. There, you will select your current wireless network and click Continue, enter the wireless password ***** requested and click Continue. The extender will then set up the wireless network automatically. Once it has completed immediately disconnect from the NETGEAR_EXT and connect to the newly created EXT network that begins with you current wireless network name.
