    Hi everyone, I searched but couldn't find much on wifi extenders.
    I can connect fine to my Netgear router, port forwarding already taken care of and running smoothly for a couple months.
    Over the holidays I got a wi-fi extender to boost signal and have my computer running off that now. I can no longer connect to FG unless I switch back to the weaker original signal. I assume this has to do with my ip address changing when I switch to the other "network"? It's still the same network as far as I'm aware but with an _EXT at the end.

    Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you actually using a Wifi extender or effectively using another router?
    If you have a different LAN range then you will need to Port Forward Router A to Router B and Router B to your PC.

    Yes I believe how I set it up it might be acting as another router. So in this situation Router A is my Netgear wifi router that was originally working and Router B is my new extender. So I need to make my router port forward to my extender, and then extender to my computer?

    Unless you are using eero or some other similar mesh network all the extenders that I'm aware of act as another router and it's a network inside your main network.

    I don't have the same router that you used in your example, but I configured mine without a problem. Thanks for the help!
