Where Should I Place My Netgear EX7500 Wi-Fi Range Extender?

This post will show you how to properly position your NETGEAR EX7500 extension. NETGEAR WiFi range extenders keep mobile devices, video players, and laptops connected to Wi-Fi with a stable connection and improved coverage throughout your home. 


If you need to use a different location, move the Netgear  EX7500 wifi range Extender closer to the device while staying within the router’s wireless range.


  • Always look at the colour of the Link Rate symbol on the extender to see if the wireless router and the extender are connected. Green is the best colour, Amber is good, and Red is terrible.


  • Move the Extender closer to the PC if there is no power outlet nearby or if you wish to set it somewhere else. When the link Rate LED is green or amber,and the PC to Extender light is green then your extender is in right placed.


How to set up your Netgear EX7500  for the best signal


Although Wi-Fi extenders have become more inexpensive, they are still difficult to set up. Here are some pointers on where to put your extender to enhance the range of your Wi-Fi network. The location of the extender is critical to its success, so have an open mind and be willing to reposition your extender if the results are unsatisfactory. Begin by drawing a diagram or sketch of your home, noting the location of the router, dead zones, and AC outlets.

Find the power outlet between the router and the place where the extender signal is good. Setup Netgear EX7500 extender to your router and follow the instructions for connecting it. Once it’s up and running, check to see if the dead zone has been enlivened with Wi-Fi.

I run a network pre-test with Ookla’s Speed Test to measure internet bandwidth before turning on the extender.

 Once the extension is up and running, check to see if the dead zone has been enlivened with Wi-Fi. If that’s the case, use Speedtest to see how much bandwidth it has. Your speed won’t be as fast as it would be if you were closer to the host, but it’s a start

What are the main features of Netgear EX7500 extender


High-power internal antennas expand Wi-Fi range in hard-to-reach sections of your home, while the Netgear EX7500Wi-Fi Range Extender gives speeds up to 2.2 Gbps. One Wi-Fi Name with Any Router uses the same Wi-Fi name as your existing Wi-Fi and ensures smooth connectivity between router and extender as you move throughout your home.
