Setup for Netgear
Extenders & Wifi Routers
Boost Your Existing WiFi Range
Sometimes its really frustrating to watch live videos with really slow network strength, holding up till the whole video gets buffered is really the worst way to get entertained. To overcome issues like dead zones, low signal strength, low wifi speeds, we use devices called WiFi Range Extenders. Netgear gives you a whole range of wifi range extenders. Each Netgear Range Extender has different features and area coverage range, and you can choose from them based on your needs. With the help of wifi Extenders, you can increase the range of your wifi router and also your signal strength.
When you try to access the website http://www.mywifiext.net/ to set up your Netgear WiFi extender, you might receive an error message or be unable to connect to the site. This can occur because http://www.mywifiext.net/ is not a basic website which you visit regularly. It is a special local web address used to open the settings (Genie or Smart Wizard) of a NETGEAR WiFi range extender. To open the correct settings page your computer must be either physically connected by Ethernet or wirelessly connected to your NETGEAR range extender to access this web address.
If your computer is not connected to the Internet, you might see one of the following error messages:
Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge. “Page cannot be displayed’ or “You are not connected to a network.”
Google Chrome. “Unable to connect to the Internet. Google Chrome can’t display the webpage because your computer isn’t connected to the Internet.”
Firefox. “Server not found. Firefox can’t find the server at www.mywifiext.net.”
Safari. “Can’t find the server.”
