You are in the right place if your Netgear WiFi range extender has a red light. You will learn what the Netgear extender red light signifies and how to resolve it in this article.

The Netgear WiFi range extender is among the better alternatives to mesh systems for extending the reach of your wireless network. The WiFi router's wireless signal improves and is amplified by this gadget. However, it can occasionally run into problems, much like other networking hardware. It is the red light on the Netgear extender in this instance.
Meaning Of The Netgear Repeater Red Light
The meaning of a solid red light on the repeater or router is the same in both situations of poor connectivity. The current state of the connection is best if you observe a solid green light.

There are several causes for the weak connection right now. The repeater and router may be too far apart, there may be service interruptions nearby, other equipment may be interfering in some way, etc. Whatever the reason for the Netgear extender red light, there are a few easy measures you may follow to resolve the issue.
Resolving Tips Of Netgear Gadget Red Light
Here are some quick tips to fix the Netgear extender red LED error:
Make Devices Closer To Each Other
The signal is very weak and the connection is poor. In this situation, the first thing that comes to mind is that the extender and router are too far apart or that something is blocking the signal.

Bring the extender closer to the router until you get a solid green light to resolve this. This shows that the connection is currently very good.
The Interference Of Signals
There is a possibility that other devices are interfering with the signal if you are certain that the extender is inside the wireless router's range but you are still seeing the red light. Fortunately, this directly ties to the wireless channel your repeater uses, and changing the router's settings to use a less busy channel is simple. You should use a network scanner program to find the least busy channel. Since it's ideal for the extender and the router to share the same WiFi channel, the extender will also be affected if the router's WiFi channel is changed to a less congested one.
Upgrade The Firmware Of The Netgear Extender
The following steps will guide you through updating the firmware of your Netgear Extender:

Join the network of the Netgear repeater using your PC or mobile device.
Enter setup portal in the address box bar of a web browser once it is open.
Then enter your login information.
In the "Settings" or "Administration" area, select "Firmware Upgrade."
If there is an update available, click "Upgrade" and wait for it to finish. During the upgrade, don't interrupt the power.
The extender will resume with the most recent firmware after you complete it.
Factory Reset Of The Netgear Extender
The Netgear extender may reset easily. However, you should be aware that all previously altered settings will be lost during the factory reset procedure.

You must find the factory reset button at the extender's base in order to accomplish that.
Then push and hold that button for roughly 10 to 20 seconds using a paperclip, or another similar instrument.
Release the button when the extender's amber light appears, and it will restart.
The extender will be set up to its default setting once it restarts.

Note: After the reset, you must do your Netgear EX3700 setup again. Before starting the setup first go to the login page of the Netgear extender.
Login Steps Of Netgear Extender
First, take the WiFi device and use an Ethernet cable to connect it to the Netgear extender network.
The next step is to open the navigator on the WiFi-enabled device and type into the address bar.
Next, enter your username and password along with the other login information that shows on the display screen.
Check the tags on the bottom of your Netgear extender if you are unsure about the login information.
Setup your Netgear Device Through WPS
Make sure your current router has the WPS button in order to connect the repeater to it using that method. Don't use this method and attempt a different one if your router doesn't support the WPS button.

First, activate the Netgear EX3700 extender's WiFi-protected setup button.
Press the WPS button on the main router in a few minutes.
Wait a short while after completing this.
You can now see that both devices' solid WPS LEDs have begun to blink.
As it indicates that the Netgear EX3700 setup is complete.
