To increase the Wi-Fi range of our existing Wi-Fi router, we could usually install a Netgear wireless range extender with it. Once installed, we get a consistent Wi-Fi signal everywhere inside our home. But, to install a Netgear wireless range extender with our wifi router, we have to set it up first. We could setup the Netgear wireless range extender in two ways. One way of doing it is by using the web browser setup which is also a manual setup and the other way of doing it is to use the Wireless protected setup which also an automatic setup.
Mywifiext.net is used to begin the setup process
To begin the web browser setup, we need to visit www.mywifiext.net. But before we do that, we have to connect our laptop or desktop computer with the Wi-Fi network of the Netgear wireless range extender. Once connected, then, we have to open any web browser on the laptop and put www.mywifiext.net on the address bar. After that, we have to search for it. After searching, we would be on the setup page and we would see a new extender setup button on the screen and by clicking on that button, we could begin the setup process.
mywifiext.net is not working
Sometimes, we might face problems while trying to open www.mywifiext.net. It could be due to many reasons. If such is the case, the first thing we have to do is to change our web browser in which we are trying to open www.mywifiext.net. If it did not work, then, we have to turn off both of the router and Netgear wireless range extender and turn back them on after one minute. Once both of the devices will be up and running then, we need to search again for www.mywifiet.net.
Resetting the Netgear wireless range extender is the last option
If none of the way discussed above works, then the only option we left with is to hard reset the Netgear wireless range extender to factory defaults. That will delete all the settings from the Netgear wireless range extender. To reset the Netgear wireless range extender, we have to take a paper pin and enter that pin onto the side of it on the reset hole. We have to press and hold the pin for 7 to 10 seconds. Once all the lights on the Netgear wireless range extender will start flashing, we have to remove the pin. Then it will take up to minute to apply all the settings. At last, we again have to open www.mywifiext.net on the web browser and this time it will take us to the setup page.
