Does the WEB6000Q automatically obtain the wireless security settings being broadcast by the gateway/router?

It will auto configure the wireless settings to certain Actiontec gateways, modems, and routers. For most other gateways, modems, and routers you will need to manually configure the wireless settings to match.

  • The question is: does Web6000Q work together with T3200M gateway? in other words, will it take the name of the SSID, and passphrase/password for WiFi from the gateway as per the documentation by Actiontec?

    Telus says here (https://www.telus.com/en/bc/support/article/setup-wi-fi-plus-range-extender) that it does. Actiontec says that it does as well. Yet, when we reset extenders and the gateway to defaults, it doesn't. Extenders appear as WiFiPlus devices, with a 4 digit network number.

  • Dmitri,

    Yes, the WEB6000Q Extender should configure its wireless settings to the same settings of the T3200M. This is currently under review by Actiontec and Telus. This may require a firmware update to one or both devices. You will need to contact Telus support for updates if required and any further support.

  • That's good to hear. It's Telus that doesn't have this working. It doesn't do what your site says it should do. I'm pretty sure firmware might need to be updated as it's preconfigured fully for the preinstall, it doesn't go to the complete vanilla setup. And I'm looking to have Web6000Q to carry the same SSID and password so I have one SSID in the entire house. I've been working with Telus on this for months.
