What is www.mywifiext.net?
Are you facing issues with the coverage or range of your main router? No worries, we find a solution for you. Install a Netgear extender in your home to extend the range of the existing wireless router and use mywifiext.net for the setup. Mywifiext.net or www.mywifiext.net is a domain name provided by the Netgear Company to setup its range extender. Please note that this is not a basic website address but is only used to setup the Netgear extender. Netgear extender is able to cover the whole area and provide maximum coverage and performance. All the routers are not capable of covering a large area so these extenders are used to increase the coverage area of your main router.
Use of IP address 192.168.1.250
A user can also use the IP address provided by Netgear Company to setup the extender. Default IP address is 192.168.1.250. We are telling you here that the web address mywifiext.net or www.mywifiext.net also redirects you to the same IP address. We use a domain name instead of IP addresses because it is easy to remember the letters than numbers. Both work in the same manner and open a login page on the screen. After the opening of the login page, you just have to enter the details and will get entered into the admin panel of the extender. You can change the settings from this window like setting parental controls, setting guest network, look at the network map, and change the network name and password of the extender.
Working of a Netgear Extender
All the extenders produced by various different Companies work in the same way. So, same is the story of Netgear extender. It takes the signal from the main router, and re-broadcast it to the zones where there is no internet connection or limited internet connection. They are very helpful in making the impossible thing possible. Do not need to spend much again in purchasing a new router for the dead zone areas. Purchase an extender that costs half the price of the main router. This saves your money and it is small in size as compared to the router. So, it is very easy to handle and place the Netgear extender.
How to place an extender?
The position of the extender matters a lot. The optimal position considered to place an extender is between the router and the dead zone. Make sure the extender is within the range of your main router otherwise it cannot be able to take the signal from the router. If it happens then the dead zone areas cannot be fun zone areas as they are not able to get the signal from the extender.
You can also place the extender nearby main router when you are installing it. After installation, you can place it anywhere within the range of the main router. Keep in mind there should not be any obstacle in between the extender and dead zone. The obstacle can be a thick wall, mirror, radio frequencies emitted by codeless phones etc. So, make sure there is no such kind of obstacle.
