No matter you own a small house or big, the problem of dead zones has always become a pain in head. On the off chance if your current router isn’t capable of covering WiFi dead zones, it is advised to add one more Netgear router to the existing.

Wondering how to use two Netgear routers at the same time? Not anymore! Here, in this article, we will shed light on how to use two Netgear routers at the same time for making the most out of your internet connection.

Let’s dive in!

A Netgear router is one of the best devices that helps in boosting the coverage of existing WiFi network. However, after configuring the Netgear device using the on-screen instructions provided on setup page, you can easily have access to uninterrupted internet range on your connected devices. In the event that you still experience connectivity issues even after configuring your Netgear router properly, consider adding one more router.

Adding two Netgear routers to your home network will help you to get internet access even in those areas of your home where WiFi was never expected, e.g. store room, balcony or lobby.

Here’s how to use two Netgear routers at the same time:

For using two Netgear routers at the same time, you need to configure them first. For that, you need to follow the instructions listed above in exact given order.

Step 1: First things first, plug in your Netgear routers in reach of each other. Make sure that the wall plug you are about to use is damaged and fluctuation-free.

Step 2: Wait for the power and WPS LEDs on your Netgear routers to become stable. On the off chance if the LEDs on your devices are blinking continuously, restart them once one-by-one.

Step 3: As soon as the power and WPS LEDs on your Netgear routers become stable, connect them both using a wireless source or an Ethernet cable. In the event that you are using an Ethernet cable to connect your Netgear routers, ensure that it is well-maintained and free from any sort of cuts and damages. To configure your Netgear routers using a wireless source without any hassle, it is suggested – do not use public or free WiFi hotspot.

Step 4: Locate and press the WPS button on your Netgear router. Wait for some time. Let the WPS LED on t start blinking. Once it becomes stable, press the WPS button on your second router.

Step 5: Unplug your Netgear routers and move them to their preferred location. But, make sure that their limit doesn’t exceed more than 50 feet.

Now, to check the internet connection, try to access setup page from your computer, laptop or mobile device. If the setup page loads up without displaying any error message, then it means that your Netgear routers are successfully configured (paired) and you are free to use them together from any nook and cranny of your house.
