To Troubleshoot Issues Connecting to MyWifiext:
- Place your range extender into the same room as your wireless router.
Once setup is done and you have a working connection to the wireless router, you can move the extender to its intended location.
- Confirm that the NETGEAR wireless range extender is connected with a power source. When the extender is receiving power, the power LED lights.
- In case your NETGEAR wireless range extender has a PC to Extender LED or a Device to Extender LED, confirm that it is lit.
In case does not lit, remove from the power cord both ends of the Ethernet cable that is joining your range extender to your device and connect it again.
- In your web browser’s address bar, enter the extender's default IP address:
- In case you remain not able to access your extender, reset your browser and try again.
- Try to use a different web browser to check that the issue is not browser related. Connect your PC to the extender through Ethernet cable.
- Assign your computer a static IP address.
Once you change any network settings, write your current Default gateway (Windows) or Router (Mac) address. Use the IP address 192.168.1.249 and the subnet mask 255.255.255.0.
