How to reset my EX6150 to the default factory configuration

The EX6150 NETGEAR Range Extender does not detect a NETGEAR router’s 5GHz wireless band, or the 5GHz link is intermittent.

Try changing the wireless channel on your router if your extender is unable to detect your router’s 5GHz wireless network or if the extender intermittently loses access to the 5 GHz band.

  1. In order to change your router’s wireless channel:

Move your extender closer to your router first.

Note: Irregular 5GHz wireless band extension connections can be triggered by inappropriate positioning. See where to position my NETGEAR Wi-Fi Range Extender for more information? Or how far can I get from my router to my EX8000 Nighthawk Tri-Band WiFi Range Extender?

  1. Sign into your interface with the router. For more details, see How do I log on to my home router with NETGEAR?
  2. After your router logs in successfully, click Wireless to access the Wireless Settings tab.
  3. Look for a channel under a wireless network (5GHz).
  4. Shift it to a channel between 36-48 or between 149-161 if the router is set to Auto, or a channel between 52-64 or 100-140.

Note: Even if you are using a channel between the suggested ranges above, to repair intermittent links, adjust the channel to something different.

  1. Click Apply. Click
  2. Reconnect the extender to the 5GHz band and see if it has enhanced the connectivity.Note: In order to be able to see your 5GHz router network name (SSID) in the list of available networks you may extend, you can need to update your network list.
