Step-by-Step Guide to Perform Netgear Extender Setup

  • Start by placing the Netgear WiFi extender and your home router in the same room.
  • Then, connect the range extender and router by using an Ethernet cable.

    Note: In case there is any breakage in the Ethernet cable that you are using, replace it with a new one immediately.

  • Plug your range extender into a working electric socket and press the Power button.
  • Once you’ve switched the Power button on, wait for the LED lights to turn a shade of green.
  • Then, switch on your laptop or PC and launch a web browser as per your preference.

Note: Ensure that the web browser you are currently using is not outdated.


  • Fill in the default web address mywifiext.net (in case of Windows) or mywifiext.local (in case of MAC) in the address bar of the web browser.

    Note: If mywifiext is ready to be your friend, then the default IP address of the extender might be of some help to you.

  • Once you have press the Enter key, the Netgear extender login page will appear on your desktop screen.
  • Type the default login credentials in the required fields and click on the Log In button.
  • Once the Netgear Genie dashboard appears, follow the on-screen instructions.

Congratulations! You have learned how to manually perform a Netgear extender setup.

However, the only problem while setting up the WiFi range extender is that sometimes mywifiext might not respond. And when that happens, you’ll come across error messages like ‘Can’t connect to the server’ or ‘mywifiext is not responding’ again and again.
