In many cases, you have to change your main router which can be due to any of the below scenarios :

1. If your service provider (ISP) gives you an upgraded router or maybe you decide to upgrade your existing router.
2. In case if you Relocate your house, Maybe move to a new house at a different location.
3. In case if your existing router dies due to some reasons and you have no other solution other than to go with a new router.

Changing your Existing Router can be a real pain sometimes as if changes everything for you, I mean a new network name, a new network password, and all that. you can also keep the same Network Name and Network Password as your existing router for the new router but I will recommend you to change it as keeping the same name and password can sometimes conflict with your old saved profiles on your devices.

                         So now as you have a new network name and password you will have to connect everything you have at your place using the new wireless setting now. same goes with your extender as well.

Connecting your Netgear Range Extender using New Wireless Settings :

For connecting your Wifi Range Extender to a new router first of all you will have to reset your Netgear Range Extender so that it goes to the default setting and all the previous saved settings of your old router are deleted from it, Netgear Extender Setup with New Router || Genie Setup with New Router

Resetting your Netgear Range Extender :

1. Connect your wifi range extender to the power somewhere where you can reach it easily.
2. Wait for the power light to turn green or solid & grab a paper clip/ toothpick which can easily stick inside the reset hole.
3. Now stick the paper click inside the reset hole & hold it there for at least 15 to 20 seconds, in some extenders for reset there will be reset button instead of reset pin-hole.
4. Now release the button or remove the paper clip.
5. Now wait for the lights or in other words wait for your extender to power up again as it will go through a power cycle after the reset.

Now once the power light is solid green it means you are done with the reset and your extender is now in default settings, ready to be configured with your new router. But in case more than one light shows up on your Range Extender that means you were not able to reset your extender and you will have to go with this process again, you can also check this through your wireless manager on your device. after the reset your Netgear Extender will show up by Netgear_Ext under available networks & if it still shows you up by the old name it means you will have to reset it again.
