Please follow the steps below:

1- First, place your Extender equal distance between your router and the farthest wireless computer located outside the range of your existing router.

2- Plug in the power adapter and turn on the Extender, and wait for one minute. The Extender Status LED will turn green

3- From the farthest computer, connect to the "NETGEAR_EXT" or "EXTENDER" wireless network. (If you don't know how to do that, please let me know the Windows or Mac version of the farthest computer)

4- Open a browser from the same farthest computer and go to www.mywifiext.net and it will automatically take you to the Smart Wizard to connect the Extender to the existing network.

5- If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don't hesitate to ask!

well, you gave me great instructions - thank you - so i followed everything - and then got to a place (after I had received the connection to the extender on my PC) and a screen asked me for a (server) username and password ***** which i have no idea what that is supposed to be - i tried 3 different ones - and of course you know what happened - i received a screen that said denied access - unathorized - from the 3 attempts....i'm not sure what that will do or not - i'm uncertain how to doublecheck what i need to know - or how to fix what i was denied....there were no 'help' buttons on the screen - just a blank white screen with those black letters - denied - unauthorized.... does this mean anything? is there something that i still need to do? how would I know? thank you so very much for your help.....i could not have gotten this far without your second note....
