I got a new Netgear Range extender a few days back. But the Netgear WiFi Exteder Setup was bothering me so much. I tried too many DIYs to do the job myself but nothing really worked for me. Then, one of my friends suggested me about the setup assitance team. Their remote assistance helped me to get the job done. I'm amazed by the service of the support executives. It's really nice to talk to them. I recomend support team!

The Netgear Genie is a masterpiece from Netgear. But I must say the setup process is something really difficult to proceed with. The setup support team has done it for me. Their service executives are highly knowledgeable. I got my router installed within a single working day. Love the service from the customer support team. A big thank you to support!
