Mywifiext.net is the web-based admin panel of NETGEAR range extender to login and change WiFi password, SSID, and default settings at http://mywifiext.net.
How to setup Mywifiext.net?
- Connect to the NETGEAR extender’s default WiFi network name (SSID) NETGEAR_EXT. (Either it has no password, or the default password is password.)
- Open a browser and type mywifiext.net in the address bar.
- Click NEW EXTENDER SETUP.
If terms and conditions pop up, click YES or I AGREE to continue.
- Enter the extender’s admin credentials. We recommend leaving the User Name as admin and password that is different from your WiFi network.
- Select and enter two security questions of your choice from the drop-down menu. This will be helpful in future if you want to reset the password.
- Select your 2.4GHz and 5GHz (optional) WiFi Network Names (SSID) and enter their existing Wi-Fi password. If you don’t see your Wi-Fi network name, click on See More.
- Now select the SSID and Password for your extended Wi-Fi network and click NEXT. By default, NETGEAR adds _2GEXT and _5GEXT to your existing Wi-Fi network name.
- Optionally, you can select Enable One WiFi Name for mesh extenders to use the same Wi-Fi network name and password as your existing network.
- On this screen, your extender’s configuration will be displayed. Connect to your extended network and click CONTINUE.
