How do I set up my NETGEAR Wireless Extender to Use the Same SSID as my Router?

NETGEAR wireless extenders can be given their own SSID for devices to connect to, but some users want to use the same SSID as the main wireless router. NETGEAR wireless extenders such as the WN1000RP, WN3000RP, EX6200, and others allow users to select the desired SSID, for example “NETGEAR-EXT” or “Home-Ext.” In some cases, users may desire for the SSID on the extender to be the same as the SSID used on the main wireless router. In that case you need to change the name of Extender and just follow the normal process and if you facing a trouble doing that, please contact technical support.
