I have a WRT610N router hooked up to my modem, and I need the WN2000RPT to extend the range towards the other corner of my house, would these two be compatible, and if so would making it be difficult?

Yes, you can easily connect wn2000rpt Netgear range extender with Linksys wrt610n router.
Here I am describing how you can do this, just look at these steps-

  • Insert the range extender’s Setup CD into your optical drive.  When the AutoPlay window appears, click on the Set up your Netgear Range Extender option.
  • Now you will see End-User License Agreement window on the screen, check the I have read and accept the License Terms for using this software box, and then click Next to continue.
  • Wait while the software is preparing to set up the wireless connection with your Linksys router and Netgear range extender.
  • Once your wireless connection has been detected, plug your Netgear range extender into an electrical outlet and then click Next
  • If the setup software is able to detect your Netgear range extender, it will prompt you to choose a wireless network.  Select your range extender's name i.e., “wn2000rpt Netgear range extender” and then click Connect.
  • Select the Wireless Network Name (SSID) of your Linksys router, and then click Next.

  • Enter your wireless network’s password or security key.  Click OK. 

  • If you want to transfer your Netgear range extender to a different location, follow the instructions provided in the setup screen, then click Next.

  • A window should appear to inform you that your range extender has been set up successfully. Click Close to end the setup process.

If still experience any technical error then contact to Linksys Router Technical Support Number.

Installation setup keeps asking me for my wireless password and I am sure I have entered the correct password. What can I do? It is likely that your extender is placed at the borderline of the signal range covered by your main Wi-Fi router. Moving your extender closer to the main Wi-Fi router will most likely resolve this. If you are using WEP security, make sure that you are typing the wireless key in the correct field. Go through the below solutions and fix all errors timely.

Will a NETGEAR wireless extender work with my existing router?
In general, NETGEAR wireless extenders are "universal" extenders. This means that they are compatible with the vast majority of wireless routers on the market, whether purchased separately or provided by an ISP.

Some important considerations regarding compatibility of wireless range extenders:

Make sure to purchase the version intended for your region, to ensure compatibility with power standard and power connections, local regulations, and so on.
Some Wi-Fi extenders operate on both the 2.4 GHz band and the 5.0 GHz band. If your Wi-Fi router only supports 2.4 GHz, the extender can of course still be used, but performance may vary depending on which band is used.
If you have any issues at all connecting your NETGEAR Wi-Fi range extender, make sure to contact NETGEAR Support for assistance.

I have enabled a wireless MAC filter (wireless access control) on my router. What should I do when installing the extender?
The wireless device MAC address is translated to another MAC address when the wireless device connects to the extender. To allow the wireless device to connect, you must add the translated MAC address into the router.
To get the translated MAC address:
Disable the MAC filter on your router.
Power on the extender and connect desired wireless devices to the extender.
Make sure that the Link Rate LED remains lit.
Log in to your router and check the connected devices on the Attached Devices screen. Add all MAC addresses including Virtual MAC (begins with 02:0F:B5) into your router’s MAC filter table.
Enable MAC filtering on your router.
An alternative method to troubleshoot such hurdles as described below:-
Step-1 First of all, get to insert the range extender’s Setup CD into your optical (CD-ROM or DVD-ROM) drive. When the Auto Play window appears, click on the Set up your Linksys Range Extender option.
Step-2 When the End-User License Agreement window appears, check the I have read and accept the License Terms for using this software box, and then click Next to continue.
Step-3 Wait while the software is preparing to set up the wireless connection with your router and range extender.
Step-4 Once your wireless connection has been detected, plug your range extender into an electrical outlet and then click Next.
Step-5 If the setup software is able to detect your range extender, it will prompt you to choose a wireless network. Select your range extender's name and then click Connect.
Step-6 Select the Wireless Network Name (SSID) of your router, and then click Next.
Step-7 Enter your wireless network’s password or security key. Click OK.
Step-8 If you want to transfer your range extender to a different location, follow the instructions provided in the setup screen, then click Next.
Step-9 A window should appear to inform you that your range extender has been set up successfully. Click Close to end the setup process. Thus the process is now completed. Hope you find your best answers here.
