Installation of the Netzier EX3110 is carried out in the traditional way reminiscent of WiFi startup. Here, there are no exclusive smartphone apps, but a simple admin interface in the web browser.
There are two solutions for the user to configure the repeater: first via the WPS connectivity function, then go to www.mywifiext.net in the second web browser and temporarily connect to the WiFi created by the repeater.
The first solution is practical if your box or router has a WPS button. In this case, you have to wait for the repeater to start (Power is guided in green), press the WPS button and wait until the WPS flashes. There are 2 minutes to press the WPS button on the box or router. After the WPS LED burns to solid green, the connection is complete and the router LED should be solid green.
If you have a router or box with two frequency bands (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), you will need to perform this operation twice, one at a time. The configuration of the Netgear EX3110 is complete, and you should see two new WiFi names (SSIDs) appear on this form: nomdelabox_2GEXT and nomdelabox_5GEXT – the password is identical to your box.
The second method is preferably used with the system. You must connect to NETGEAR_EXT Repeater’s configuration WiFi and access mywifiext.net address in a web browser. Once in the configuration interface, it will guide you to select SSIDs to extend, enter passwords and finally restart to use the configuration.
The configuration interface allows you to make some changes, but very basic. You can change the name of the repeater’s WiFi networks and their password, update the internal software or choose the runtime. The only interesting thing is that the FastLane option allows you to dedicate a frequency band for the connection between the router and the repeater, while the second band is assigned to the client devices. This option – in theory – can not split the bandwidth by two for a given bandwidth, but restricts usage to 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz, knowing that often connected objects do not match 5 GHz.
