      Sky Hub 2.0 not connecting to Netgear N300 wifi range extender

      I recently received a new Sky Hub 2.0 router which replaced my old O2wireless router. In order to connect Xbox live in another room I bought a Netgear range extender which I connected to my O2 router and it worked fine. I have been unable to connect the Netgear range extender since I got the Sky Hub 2.0. Any advice would be appreciated, I have already called Sky who tried to help but were unsuccessful. Many Thanks

      There are a great number of Netgear range extenders, what model do you have?

      Have you 1. Reset the unit to factory default before trying to install it? 2. Ensured you have the correct password for the new router?

      You could try changing the password in the new router to the same as the old one.

      Looking at the User Manual for the WN3000RP, you have a WPS button on it.

      http://www.downloads.netgear.com/fil..._13APR2012.pdf

      This should work:

      1. Temporarily place the WN3000RP in near to the SR102 & plug it into the mains
      2. Press the WPS button on the front of the SR102 for about 1-3 seconds it should start blinking
      3. Press the WPS button on the WN3000RP for about 1-3 seconds and it will then connect to the SR102


      If this doesn't work, then you should reset the WN3000RP. The Reset button is shown on page 3. On page 4 it states:
      Factory Reset button. To use this button, stick a paper clip into the reset hole and hold it until the Status LED flashes.
