When using WPS my modem never found the extender. Using the app also didn't work. I got to the point where I connected to my network and each time it would say wrong password. Even though I was putting the correct password in. Did some research on Google and found you can connect via ethernet from the extender to a laptop. After creating an account it walks you through the setup which is by far the easiest way. Also allows you to update the firmware etc. Once this was done it was connected in mins.
I also had issues getting the light to turn solid green initially. After a few resets and power on and off I was able to get it on though.
Now that it is connected the Wifi is excellent. In the very back of my yard I get full signal where as previously I would get less than half on my deck. I recommend this unit if you follow the above steps it should be easy to connect.
After some experimenting of different configurations, I got this to work without any issues by having it use a different AP name from my mobile NetGear Nighthawk MR1100 hotspot router as well as limit it to the 5Ghz band (I sent my hotspot router to use 2.4Ghz).
From what I could tell, there was some sort of conflict/problem occasionally when trying to connect my wireless devices if using the same AP name. This required me to reboot the extender (otherwise I would not be able to connect at any devices to my WiFi network). It wasn't until I made sure that the extender was using a different wireless network name and made sure that it wasn't using the same network band as my main network router that I got things to work well.
I haven't tested it to see whether I would experience the same problems if I have the extender use a different name for the 2.4Ghz as my mobile hotspot router and a different name for the broadcast of the 5Ghz. I know that during my testing, when I used the extender to broadcast at 5Ghz using the same name as my mobile hotspot router which was broadcasting at 2.4Ghz, occasionally something would happen which made it impossible to connect my wireless devices to my network.
Keeping everything "separate" is the way to go for me with this product and extend the range of the wireless internet signal in my place since my mobile hotspot router (MR1100) has a limited range.
Update (after using it for over a year): Noticed this serious issue with the device after using it a year which is if the device is powered off, it will sometimes (more often than not) reset back to factory defaults which in my opinion is a very serious issue since unless you realize it, someone will connect your device to their wireless access point and extend their internet with their configuration/password. I contacted NETGEAR via their online community forum and never received a reply.
My requirements were for the AP to handle around 10 devices, which is a generous ask of this device given Netgear claims it can support up to 35 devices. I ended up returning this device because for my purpose it completely failed to do the job.
Now despite this bad experience, I purchased a v1 of this device just to see how it performs with OpenWRT. So, there are changes in 2 variables here, the hardware and software configuration are completely different. Both versions of the device claim the same feature set. The v1 device with OpenWRT runnig, has been flawless. There seems to be no CPU issues.
My conclusion despite having 2 variable changes, is that Netgear's firmware essentially crippled the device for serious wifi use, and the claim of 35 devices would be impossible to achieve with Netgear's firmware.
I'd recommend to steer clear of the new version (v2) of device. If you can get the v1 and then install OpenWRT, you'd then have an a device capable of matching the claims that Netgear makes for this device.

I wanted to use this as an access point. The WiFi signal is good and performs well as an AP however the interface, already sluggish, doesn't seem to work for the most part in the AP mode. E.g. firmware update, has the option to check online, and it says no internet detected, while I'm clearly connected to the internet via this AP. Clicking on connected devices just gives a long running in-progress loop. I'm not sure if it will ever finish, but I gave it about a min before I navigated away. All these menu options seem to work fine in Range Extender mode. Also, this is the v2 meaning there's no support for OpenWRT or another 3rd party FW yet.
