Windows 7: Changing security setting on netgear extender

Changing security setting on netgear extender

Hi All

I have just installed a Netgear WN3000RP Wireless range extender and Netgear N300 Wireless USB Adaptor.
The USB Adaptor shows as having WPA2-PSK Security but the Extender only shows as having WPA-PSK Security.
This is probably something I did when installing.
Is there any way to alter the security setting on the extender or do I need to reinstall it.

Yours Dave T

According to pages 16 through 18 here
That extender is capable of WPA2-PSK[AES] and you should be able to configure it using the instructions on page 16.
I suppose it is possible that a more recent firmware update might be required if you are not seeing it at all in the configuration page. So check with the manufacturer's site to see if there is a more current version available than the one you are currently using.

When I do so, I plan to also upgrade our present WiFi security from WPA to the Nighthawk's default, WPA2-PSK (AES). I plan, however, to keep the old router's same SSID and password. I'm hoping...
