All seems good, isn't it? No! Sadly, a lot of users have reported that they occasionally experience too many WiFi connection issues with their Netgear wireless range extender. In the failure of getting any dependable solution, users get frustrated and consider buying a new WiFi extender.

However, if you are too thinking the same, don't! The good news is these fluctuating WiFi issues on your wireless extender can be fixed permanently. Yeah, you read that absolutely right!

Just try the below-given ways and fix your internet issues with the extender.

1. Place Your Extender in Clear Surroundings

This means that your extender should not be placed nearby any electronic gadgets and interfering objects. Appliances such as baby monitors, Bluetooth devices and microwave ovens should be avoided. These devices transmit radio frequencies which interfere with the WiFi signals of your extender. That's why it is highly recommended to keep your Netgear wireless range extender away from such objects.

2. Switch to Higher Frequency Band on Your Extender

If you own a dual-band Netgear WiFi range extender, it becomes very easy to choose between WiFi coverage and speed. Higher frequency bands like 5 GHz endow you with the fast data transfer speed and bandwidth while lower bands such as 2.4 GHz are perfect for coverage.

3. Don't Open Multiple Tabs

With multiple tabs opened in your web browser, a wireless network becomes slow and sluggish. Without any doubt, it's best for work productivity but it puts an adverse effect on your network speed. So, keep a practice to close all unimportant tabs and reload the ones that are still open.

4. Check for the Power Supply

Another reason why your home network is under-performing is the insufficient power supply. To resolve it, power off your WiFi access point, wireless extender and cable modem by unplugging all of them. After some time, re-plug all these devices and turn them on. Once done, go to your extender's Netgear genie setup page and check whether your device is properly configured or not.

5. Disconnect All Inactive WiFi Devices

The WiFi devices which are currently not in use must be disconnected from the WiFi range extender network. Doing so will not make your extender overloaded. Thus, you can enjoy a stable and fast internet connection all over the house. After that, try connecting to your extender's home network again and check if the issue is fixed.
