After the setup is done, the same URL will help you go to the settings of the extender.

How to Fix Netgear Extender Login Issues? 

  1. Use mywifiext.net

If you are not able to log in to your Netgear wireless range extender using mywifiext.local, then you should use mywifiext.net instead. This is an alternative web URL that is used to log in to the extender. Simply type this web address instead of the previous one and see if you can do the login or not.
  1. Log in Using the IP Address

Every networking device is assigned its IP address that helps it communicate over the internet.  If the URL is not helping you log in then you can use the IP Address of the Netgear wireless range extender. Refer to the user manual and check the default IP Address of your extender. You can also use the command prompt on your computer to check the IP Address assigned to your extender. Make sure that the computer is connected to the extender’s network to find its IP Address using the command prompt.
  1. Connect to the Right Network

You may not be on the local network which is why you are facing issues while logging in to your Netgear wireless extender using the web URL mywifiext.local. We suggest you check the network that your computer is connected to. If it is not connected to the Netgear extender’s network, then disconnect it from its current network and access the right network. Select the extender’s SSID from the list of available networks. You can now log in without any issues.
  1. Make No Typing Errors

Whether you are using the web URL or the IP address, see to it that there are no typing mistakes in it. You need to be very sure of this. Users commit simple mistakes and then get stuck during the login process. We suggest you cross-check the entrée and then hit the Enter key on the keyboard.
  1. Make Changes in the Browser

Use a supported and compatible internet browser to access the login page of your extender via the web URL or IP address. Put to use an alternative browser now and see if it helps you. Besides, do upgrade the browser to the recent version. The older version can stop you from logging in. Apart from this, remove the cache and cookies from the browser as the accumulated junk in the browser can also be a reason why the URL won’t load. Additionally, refrain from using the search bar of the browser to type the URL or IP. Use the address field only.
  1. Restart and Log In

Restart your Netgear WIFI extender once and then try logging in to it.  Restarting can help fix glitches from the device and thus you can log in after that. If rebooting the extender only does not help, then power cycle the entire network. This means you should power down your extender, router and the computer also. Remove the cables connected to them including the power cables. Power up the devices after some time. Connect the computer to the extender’s network and then log in.

The Closing Note

You should now be able to log in to your Netgear extender using the web URL or the IP address. Go ahead and tweak the settings of the extender the way you like.
