It sounds like you are trying to configure the Netgear Range extender, If the Light is blinking please try to press the reset button for 10-20 sec and continue the followings steps below:

  1. Set the switch on the EX6100 to Extender.
  2. Plug the EX6100 into an electrical outlet halfway between your wireless router and computer.
  3. Wait for the Power light to become solid green.

    Note: If the device did not turn on, push the On/Off switch on the side of the EX6100 beside the switch.

  4. On your wireless computer, tablet, or smartphone, view the available wireless networks and connect to the EX6100 signal. It has two Wi-Fi networks:
    • 2.4GHz: EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT
    • 5 GHz: EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT
  5. Once connected to the network, the Extender Client Link light will turn on.
  6. Open an internet browser and go to www.mywifiext.net.
  7. Select the SSID for 2.4GHz and click Continue.

    Note: If you click on Skip, make sure your wireless router supports 5GHz band.

  8. Type the network Passphrase and click Continue.
  9. Select the SSID for 5GHz and click Continue.
  10. Type the network key and click Continue.

    Note: You can click Skip if you do not want to connect the device to 5GHz or if you have no existing 5GHz network.

  11. Select Public Network or Private Network and click Continue.
    • Public: Hotel Wi-Fi, Coffee shop Wi-Fi, Airport Wi-Fi etc
    • Private: Own home/office network(You WiFi name)
  12. Enter the security settings for the Extender and click Continue.
  13. Genie will now apply the settings.
  14. Connect to the extender wireless network and click Continue.
  15. Click Finish.

If that doesn't work or if any other steps is unclear please let me know, So that we can try some other alternate solution. Thank you
