Netgear EX6120 Power LED
You can see the extender’s power LED is solid amber, green or red in color. No matter whatever the color of the power LED is, we simply suggest – there is nothing to worry about. If the power LED on your range extender is solid green, then it’s ok. And, if it is blinking in amber or red color or is solid red or amber (orange), then you need to do the following:
- Ensure that your range extender is getting a steady power supply from its wall outlet.
- Be damn sure that your range extender is on.
- Apart from that, the extender’s power adapter must not be worn out or damaged and must be plugged in properly.
Just in case, the issue remains the same, simply power cycle your device once. For this, unplug your Netgear EX6120 extender. Wait for a few minutes, and plug it back in again. The power LED will become solid green shortly.
Netgear EX6120 WPS LED
If you are facing issues during the initial Netgear EX6120 setup process using the WPS method, then knowing the status of the WPS LED on your range extender would be a great help to you. If the WPS LED on your range extender is lit and green, it means that the WPS connection is successfully established. And, if you find the WPS LED blinking, then you need to make the WPS connection again. Wondering how to do so? Without much delay, drop your questions in the comments box.
Netgear EX6120 Router Link LED
When it comes to Netgear EX6120 setup using mywifiext or 192.168.1.250 IP, we recommend you connect your extender directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. Do not connect the devices wirelessly. Besides, ensure that the router you are using is running on an updated version of the firmware. And, apart from this, you must be on an upgraded data plan. Ensure this and fix the solid/ blinking red, amber, and no Netgear EX6120 Router Link LED issue.
Router and Client Arrow LED
If you are struggling with Netgear EX6120 setup issues, then we suggest you check the status of the client and router LED on your range extender. Just in case, any of them is blinking for too longer, then it is recommended:
- Relocate your Netgear extender
- Place the EX6120 device near to your existing router
- Also, place the extender away from public or neighboring hotspot
- Locate the extender at the center-most area in your home
- The higher and open space would be best for your EX6120 device

If you are also experiencing issues with the Netgear EX6120 client link LED, then you have to ensure that your client devices are connected properly to your extender’s WiFi network.
