Hi, and thanks for using

You do not need to go to and

Please place the extender about half way between the router and the wireless computer/laptop. Make sure that computer is out of range from the router (i.e., the computer does not see the router's wireless network name). Then plug in the power to the extender and wait a minutes. Then connect that computer to the NETGEAR_EXT wireless network name, then open Internet Explorer or whatever your browser is, then follow the instructions on the screen; it will ask you to enter the passphrase and some other information.
