Netgear Wi-Fi range extender is a plug and play network device. All you need to do is plug in the extender to the power supply (wall socket) and login to mywifiext.net. From here, you will be directed to the setup page where you can configure your range extender going through few steps for the configuration part.
Generally, if we check then there are two standard ways of configuring your wireless extender to an existing network:
A.Through WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup),
B.Manually through mywifiext.net setup,
Let’s go through these two methods in brief now over here ::
* The WPS or The Wi-Fi Protected Setup
Mainly requires the WPS button on both of your units i.e on both your router as well as your Netgear extender you need wps button . Except the WN1000 RP, all models of Netgear extender have the WPS dexterity.
Check out the list of Netgear extenders which have the WPS button:
Netgear ex7000, Netgear ex6920, Netgear ex6200, Netgear ex6100, Netgear ex3920, Netgear ex3800, Netgear ex2700, Netgear WN 3000RPV3, Netgear WN3000RPV1, Netgear WN2500RP, Netgear WN2000RPTV3, Netgear ex6150
Easiest & Fastest way for setting up your Netgear Range Extender is WPS Method. Here is how you can carry out :
Firstly Plugin the netgear extender in a power outlet as close as possible to the main router(less than 2 feet).
Now, simultaneously press the WPS button on the router and the netgear extender.
You will see a blinking LED on both your router as well as the extender.
Within a minute, you will have 3 solid green lights on your extender.
And as soon as you will have three solid green lights your extender is configured now. You may access mywifiext.net or any other website to verify that the extender is up and running.
When you will press The WPS button on Router it activates the router to search out for the authorized nearby devices which is your extender in this case. The process does not involve any other complications and the extender automatically picks up the same settings from the router network and copy the same settings on your extender firmware.
The best part with the WPS setup is that you do not have to manually login to mywifiext.net and then manualy go through the setup step by step which require you to enter your wireless router password and other things . You do not require to manually input your wireless password.
**Manually Through mywifiext.net Setup Page
Sometimes if your WPS button is not enabled on your router then you will not be able to carry out this WPS Process along with this there are chances that you will not be able to configure your extender through this WPS Process.
So,in that case we will have to perform the mywifiext.net manual setup. And here is how you can do it:
Plug the extender to the power source and wait for the green light or in other words wait for it to boot up.
Now on your computer, smartphone or tablet, you will see a new Wi-Fi network as: ‘NETGEAR_EXT’. Select this network and open up a fresh web browser.
This will direct you to the mywifiext.net setup page. If not, then go to the address bar and type in 192.168.1.250 on your web address field.
Here, you will be asked for a username and password. Over here use the Default one i.e Use admin for username and password for password.
Now, This will direct you to a new page which will be the Genie smart setup page, which is same as mywifiext.net page. Here you will be asked a few questions to register your account with Netgear.
Once you have registered successfully,select ‘continue’. Now you will be directed to a new page where you will see a list of network available.
Choose your home network and select ‘continue’.
You will be asked for a password or the network key. This is the same as you use to connect your wireless devices to your home network. Just punch your password and select ‘continue’.
Important: passwords are case sensitive, so make sure you type in the right password.
In the next step, simply click on the skip option. Finally, check mark the option which says “use the same security mode and password as those for the existing network”.
Congratulations, your Netgear extender has been configured. You can unplug it and place it where you have weak Wi-Fi signals.which will be approx 30 to 40 feets away from your main wifi router.
The modules mentioned above will help you configure your Wi-Fi range extender to your existing network and make it a plug-and-play device for future use.
However, there might be chances that you would find it quite a task to get your extender running.as sometimes your extender will show you up by your home wifi name but there will be no internet access on it in such cases Do not worry. You can always call up on 1-888-914-8918 or visit http://mywifiextnett.net/ and get in touch with certified network technicians and get your extender configured easily just one click away from you.
