Locate WPS button on FWAG114

Want to connect Netgear N600 WiFi Range Extender Model WN2500RP to Netgear Wireless VPN Router FWAG114. The WN2500RP instructions tell me to push the WPS button on the FWAG114. That button is not identified on the wireless router. Where is it located?

Thanks for posting to Fixya!

According to the manual I found at the following link;

WPS is not supported on this router. However, my suggestion would be to reset the WN2500 to default with the reset and start fresh, using the manual setup. You can find the help you need here;

SOURCE: Is it possible to set up the Engenius 300Mbps

Yes you can. The button is in the software. goto http://192.168.1.254 or whatever the URL for the modem. Login. Goto Home-->Wireless--> Push WPS Button Remotely and push the button. I don't know if you need to have the repeater nearby when you do this. I had mine sitting right next to my router.

Doesn't look like your router/modem supports WPS, here is the manual. http://www.2wire.com/pages/pdfs/2701HG_user_guide.pdf
I would check your Range extender model because some allow for a wired configuration
Here is a How To, to configure the extender via cable and utility http://support.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/41

SOURCE: not able to connect the extender to my apple time capsule? no wps button. can i use this extender?

Hi, yes you will be able to use the Netgear range extender with the Apple Time Capsule, provided you configure the Time Capsule's wireless settings based from the wireless security you have setup on the Netgear router or extender. No need for WPS button. Just treat the time capsule just like another wireless laptop.
For instructions in setting up wireless settings of Time Capsule click on this link -->> http://www.apple.com/timecapsule/wireless.html

Hope this helps. Glad to be of service.

SOURCE: How to connect the ASUS EA-N66R as a range extender.

SETTING A ROUTER AS A REPEATER 1. Connect your computer to the repeater router's RJ45 port with a LAN cable. 2. Open a browser, then enter the router's URL configuration's IP address, This is usually something similar to 192.168.0.1 3. Enter the configuration user name and password. The router will display the various router settings. 4. Go to the page that changes the IP address of the router. Changed the IP address so that it is not the same as the main router on the network, or any other network devices. If the main router on the network is set to 192.168.1.1 then the repeater router should use a higher number (ie. 10), such as 192.168.1.10 or higher, depending on how many devices are on your network. 5. Disable the repeater router's DHCP server. This setting should be on the same page as the IP address, (this may be different depending on the make of the router). When the main router is operating normally, this server assigns an IP address to every device that is connected to your network. Because this router is used as a repeater, the main router on your network will still issue the IP addresses. 6. Also turn off the DNS server, if it is activated. This function will be taken over by the main router. 7. Disable any firewall settings on the repeater router. This is usually in the "Security" section, depending on the make and model of your router. 8. Remove all in the "Port Forwarding" section. Some routers may refer to this as "Applications and Gaming," and it allows less-restricted access to the internet. 9. Set the operating mode switch to "Gateway" or "Switch" if applicable. Also, if the repeater router is a wireless router then disable the wireless access or set it to access point only. 10. Save the settings for each page, and reboot the router. When the router boots up, the changes will allow it to act as a simple repeater. 11. Now, place the repeater router in a new location and connect both routers with a Ethernet cable in each of the router's RJ45 LAN ports, and power it up both routers.

Do you have the range extender set up on the same live in the fuse box? If you have the one side on a breaker on the opposite side of the fuse box from the othrr side, it will not work well at all. That is why I encourage people not to waste their money on these things and get a decent wireless system so that you dont have problems.

HOW DO I CONNECT MY EXTENDER THROUGH WIFI


It need to be wire connected to another router, once it has an IP you can access the device with a web browser and configure wireless access pretty much with the same information as your actual wireless access point, same network ID and key.

Note: EX6100_NETGEAR_2GEXT and EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT are the default name of your extender's wireless networks, and by default it is unsecured. If you changed the wireless name or security in the past, connect to the new name or enter the passphrase when prompted. EX6100_NETGEAR_5GEXT is only visible if your wireless adapter is 5 GHz capable.
After the wireless connection with the computer or mobile device is established, the Client Link LED lights solid green.
5. Open a web browser window from the same computer or mobile device.The browser takes you directly to NETGEAR genie Smart Setup.

12. Click on the check box and click on Continue to finalize the installation.

I can not gem=t my WN2500RP to connect to my Netgear Router


To properly set up the WN3000RP you first have to push the WPS or Push 'N' Connect button on the router-WN2500RP(on the back of the router between the reset and the wired connection slots) and then the Push 'N' Connect button on the extender. It should negotiate and establish a connection between them.
