Re: How to get Actiontec WCB3000N to extend network instead of creating own network?


Got it working.


First step was performing a factory reset of the WCB3000N. Once reset, the extender created "Actiontec" 2.4G and 5G networks (since I purchased used, the seller must not have reset the device, so it was using prior user's settings). Disconnecting and reconnecting the extender did not have the effect of extending the G1100's wireless network, and the extender was still driving two "Actiontec" wireless networks.


I then used the WPS feature to connect the extender to the G1100: With both devices connected to coax and powered up, press and hold the WPS button on the extender for at least 8 sec. Then within 2min, press the WPS button on the G1100 router. That got the desired result of the WCB3000N using and extending the G1100's wireless network.
