How Can I Get Started With My Netgear Wifi Range Extender?

In this article, we will learn how can we start your Netgear wifi range extender. You need to just follow the below-mentioned steps.

  • Follow these steps to set up your extender: Put a plug in your extender.
  • The LED Power starts to shine.
  • If the Power LED doesn’t light up, press the Power or On/Off buttons.
  • Connect your computer or phone to the extender’s WiFi network.
  • NETGEAR EXT is the WiFi network name that comes with the extender (SSID). Either the extender network doesn’t have a password or the default password is a password.
  • Your device may tell you that it can’t connect to the Internet. This is easy to understand. Keep the WiFi connection going.
  • Open a web browser and type or mywifiext.net.
  • The New NETGEAR WiFi Extender Setup page shows up.
  • You can click or tap on NEW EXTENDER SETUP to get to it.
  • If you are asked to agree to the rules, click or tap “Yes” or “I Agree.”
  • Choose your extender’s admin credentials.
  • You need these credentials to use a web browser to get to your extender’s settings.
  • We suggest leaving the default User Name of “admin” and using a password that is not the same as the password for your WiFi network.
  • Choose and answer two of the security questions from the drop-down menu.
  • If you forget the admin credentials for your extender, you can use these questions to get them back.
  • Then you should click or tap “NEXT.”
  • Choose YES or CONTINUE if your extender asks if you want to use the NETGEAR Genie.
  • Your extender looks for WiFi networks that are close by.
  • Choose the radio buttons for your network’s 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi names (SSID).
  • If you can’t see your networks, click or tap See More.
  • You should click or tap on NEXT.
  • Enter the network’s password and then click or tap “Next.”
  • You can choose the SSIDs and passwords for your extender.
  • By default, the extender adds _2GEXT to the end of the name of your current network for the 2.4GHz band and _5GEXT for the 5GHz band. The password for each bar is the same as the password for the network you are currently using.
  • (Optional) You can use the same WiFi name and password that you use for your current network with mesh extenders. If your extender can do it, click the Enable One WiFi Name box to turn on this feature.
  • This lets your WiFi extender use the same name (SSID) and password (passphrase) as your current WiFi network.
  • Now, click or tap the NEXT button.
  • Your settings are affected by the add-on. This could take a while.
  • The WiFi network name (SSID) and password for each band of your extender are shown on the extender. Pay attention to what comes next.
