By Space Coast Daily // April 19, 2022
The Netgear AC750 EX6100 extender extends the range of your original wireless signal beyond the range of your primary WiFi network connection. Simply position the EX6100 extender within your router’s current range, and it will extend that signal outward. Due of the dual-band range, it can transmit up to 100-150 feet. To complete the Netgear EX6100 setup steps, navigate to mywifiext.net’s smart wizard.
Netgear EX6100 setup is accomplished in one of two ways:
■ Manual setup (Web Browser Setup).
