If your Range extender is restarting once or twice in a day, then this is normal, but if it restarts again and again after setup, then there can be some problem with the device. You need to check ‘How to setup Netgear WiFi extender’ post and check if you have successfully configured the extender or not.
The below-mentioned steps must be ensured and checked for your range extender:
- Is the extender drained: If the extender remains on for a complete day and more than a year, then there are chances of storage space being full? The extender when you connect to multiple devices consumes storage space and this problem can be resolved by hard resetting the extender.
- Perform an update: Check the version of firmware installed on your Ex2700. This can be checked online if the option is grayed out, then it means no new update is available but if you are getting the green color, then it means the update is available for the extender. You can click on ‘How to setup Netgear WiFi extender N300’ for complete instructions related to setup and update.
- Check the power cords: The cables connected to the extender must be examined carefully. If there is any loose connection or any breakage in the wire, then you won’t be able to use it seamlessly. Replace the cable and see if the persistent restarting problem has been resolved or not.
- Check the temperature of your device: If your device is too hot to touch, then turn it off and wait for a few minutes. This also indicates that the fans within the device are not working properly. The normal temperature for the extender is below 114 degrees Fahrenheit.
You can use an external USB fan if the internal fan is not working. This fan is readily available in the market and you can connect to any USB port of your computer. In case, you continue to face the issue, then you should contact experts.
