We are surrounded by hundreds of passwords for
different products and services. And it can be really tricky to remember them
all. It’s quite likely to forget the password of your NETGEAR WiFi extender and
that can be quite frustrating. If you encounter such an issue, you can reset
the device to its original settings. Just follow these simple steps to reset your device.
