How do I fix my Netgear extender issues?
Having issues in setting up your Netgear range extender? No need to get irritated. Just try these simple solutions and you should be good to go. Mostly these simple solutions will easily fix any extender issues that you might be having.
Check these out:
A straightforward reboot will resolve any issue you may be having with Netgear extender instantly in most cases. Simply, turn the Netgear extender off and afterward unplug it. Then wait for a few minutes to plug it back on. After it restarts, you can now start the Netgear extender setup process.
2. Can't reach mywifiext.net
If you have issues getting to the mywifiext.net setup page for Netgear extender setup, first ensure that your device is connected to the extender's network. You can use an ethernet cable to connect the extender and your device for a more secure connection. After connecting, now open a browser and access mywifiext.net once again. You should be able to get connected now. If it still doesn’t connect try these:
- Try using a different browser to connect to mywifiext setup page
- If changing browser doesn't work to another device to access mywifiext login page.
- If you still can’t connect to mywifiext.net then instead try the default IP address 192.168.1.1 to get to the extender setup page.
3. Set up extender password
You should use the same password as your wifi to connect with your extender. It is much easier to connect with the extender using the same password instead of a new password that you might forget. In case you have set a different password and you forget it later then you can’t use the wi-fi password to connect with it. So, if that happens you should reset the extender and setup it again using the same password as your wi-fi.
4. Reset extender
If you ever get stuck and nothing else seems to work, there’s a reset button on your extender to reset it manually. You should try doing a hard reset for your extender as the last resort. You should simply press and hold the reset button for a couple of moments until the reset begins. Allow the reset to complete and the extender will reboot naturally.
When reset is finished, you can begin the Setup procedure once again. This time you may not confront any issues but in case you still face issues, you should not hesitate to contact our Netgear support helpline for professional assistance. Just get in touch with our technicians for troubleshooting.
