I am changing over to fibre broadband and this means using a BT Hub 5 router instead of my netgear router. I have a WN3000RP extender but I can't see how to connect this to the new router

Hello! My name is***** am a certified computer professional who will assist you with the problem you described.In order to use your WN3000RP extender with a new router, you will need to reset the extender settings and set it up the same way you did for your previous router. To reset it, insert a thin object, such as a paper clip, into the Factory Reset hole and hold it until the Status LED flashes. You can then take out the paper clip and wait for about 2 minutes. Go to your computer and scan for nearby wireless networks. You should see the one called "NETGEAR_EXT". Connect your computer to it and then start a web browser and type this web address: It will open the extender setup wizard, so follow the on-screen instructions to link your extender with your new router. Let me know how then went.Regards,IT Miro
