If you frequently encounter the NETGEAR EX6120 no internet connection issue, here is what you should do. NETGEAR extenders are sensitive to technical issues, which can reduce overall networking performance. However, there are several reasons why your extenders are giving you the no connection error. The most common causes are incorrect configuration, placement, interference issues, and other factors that can potentially disrupt your network connection.
Because this is a frequently reported issue, we will go over some of the reasons why your extender is behaving this way. Continue reading to learn more about your extender problems and how to troubleshoot them.
NETGEAR EX6120 No Internet Connection Fix:
1. Reboot Your Extender:
Power cycling your extender will solve the majority of your problems without delving into complicated fixes for technical issues, connection issues, or extender communication problems. Power-cycling is an excellent way to clear your extender of accumulated cache, which can cause performance issues from time to time. It also gives your extender a little break, allowing it to run more smoothly.
Remove all cable connections from the extender to power cycle it. Remove the power adapter from the wall and unplug the extender from any power source. Allow it to rest for about 30 seconds in a dead state. Reconnect the router cable and turn on the extender. Wait until the LED stabilizes and your extender restarts.
2. Connection With Your Router:
If your extender is connected to a client but no internet connection is displayed, there may be a problem with the extender-router configuration. Check that your extender is properly connected to your router via an Ethernet cable. To check the status of your connection, observe the behavior of the router LED on your extender. I place your extender close to the router but not too close, as interferences can cause signal distortion.
3. Check Your Clients:
If your wireless clients recognize the extender connection but are unable to connect to it, connect your client via a wired connection (using an Ethernet cable). If your wired client has no trouble connecting to the extender, the problem may be with the device to which you are attempting to connect. Reconnect your wireless client to the extender network using the correct network credentials. Check to see if the issue has been resolved. On the other hand, if your clients are not connecting via an internet cable, there could be a problem with your extender’s settings. For additional technical assistance, please contact NETGEAR support.
4. Reboot Your Router:
It is not always the extender that is acting up; it is also possible that your router is not sending enough signals to your extender. As a bonus, power cycle your router.
Remove all of your router’s cable connections and unplug it from the power source. Wait 30 seconds before reconnecting it to the power supply. When reconnecting the cables, make sure your connections are secure and tight. Wait for the router to stabilize before connecting it to the extender.
