STEP 1: Place the Extender
Let us talk about the very first step to performing the Netgear WN3000RPV3 setup. It is to place the extender at a suitable location in the home. How you can decide the best place for your extender. Let us tell you that while you are setting up the WiFi range extender, you need to place it near the host router or the main gateway. Thus bring it to the place where your router is placed.
STEP 2: Apply Power
While you have brought your extender closer to the router, there is one thing that you need to consider. There ought to be an available wall socket near the router. If there’s any then make use of an extension cord.
Insert the power adapter that came along with the Netgear WN3000RPV3 extender into it. Plug the other end into the available power outlet. Ensure that the power socket should be damage-free and in well working condition. Thereafter turn the power button on and apply power to the extender.
STEP 3: Connect to Existing WiFi Network
Steps 1 and 2 are done now. The third step ”Connect to existing WiFi network” can be executed in two ways. We have highlighted both below. You can put to use either of both at your convenience.
Process 1: Using WPS Button
- Find a button labeled WPS on the Netgear WN3000RPV3 WiFi range extender.
- Push it gently upon locating it.
- Identically, locate and push the WPS button on the host router as well.
And, that’s it! The Netgear WN3000RPV3 setup via the WPS button is done. In the event you discovered that your host router does not have the WPS button on it, do not worry. You can utilize the method that appears next.

Relocate the Extender
Move the extender to a new location now. Place it halfway between the router and the area where there was no WiFi earlier. After plugging it there, let it boot up completely. After that, try accessing its WiFi on any device. If you are getting good WiFi signals there, you are good to go. If the WiFi signals are weaker, then unplug the Netgear WN3000RPV3 and bring it a little closer to the router. We are sure that WiFi dead zones are now turned into fun zones.
