MYWIFIEXT.NET- NETGEAR EXTENDER SETUP & LOGIN
How can we perform AX1800 4-Stream Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Extender Setup using the Netgear installation assistant?
To connect with the installation assistant, you are required to plug in the extender with the power outlet of your home. Wait till the LED of the extender lit up to the green, and if the LED is not blinking, then you have to press the Power button on, that is given over the extender. After doing this setup, you have to connect your device with the extender using an Ethernet cable. One end of the Ethernet cable should be plugged into the computer and another end should be connected with the device or the router that you are using for Wi-Fi connection although, the Netgear extender setup can be paired with any of the latest models of the router. To connect with your Wi-Fi-enabled device, go to Wi-Fi connection manager, there you have to find and connect with the extender network called NETGEAR_EXT. After connecting with the Wi-Fi-enabled device, the LED over the extender will turn to green. Now open a web browser from your mobile or computer, and follow the upcoming steps…
Steps that will take you to setup your AX1800 4-Stream Wi-Fi Extender Setup

- Before clicking the next button, you have to select the Wi-Fi network for your extender to stretch the network. If you want to extend only a single frequency band, then you have to clear one of the frequency bands from 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands.
- In the field of Wi-Fi password and IP address, you have to fill all these to credentials very carefully. It will be better if you will use the same SSID for your router and the extender on AP mode. After setting the new SSID and the username for your extender and the router, click the NEXT tab.
- It might take a minute or two to show the web page of your router. Now you can connect your Wi-Fi enabled device with the extender, by putting the SSID and the password that you have given to your extender.
- Before you move on to the next step, be sure that your Wi-Fi device is being connected with the extender properly. When you will click the continue tab, a web page will be displayed, that will confirm that the router is being successfully connected to the extender. Now the registration page will be demonstrated to your screen, after clicking the NEXT tab.
- Complete the registration field by giving the required details, then you will click the Finish button to complete the button. If you want to continue the Extender setup process without doing the registration, then you can skip the process by clicking at the link to skip.
- Remove the extender form the power outlet and move it to some other location. The distance between your router and the extender should not be more than half to the distance of your end device and the router.
- The device and the extender should be placed within the range of Wi-Fi signals from your router. Again plug the extender to the power source of your home and wait till the LED starts blinking.
- Try to move the extender away from the router, but it should be moved to the distance from where the LED will continue to blink. If the LED stops blinking that means you have to bring the extender a little closer to the Wi-Fi router.
- Connect your computer and the devices that you want to hook with the Wi-Fi, to the extender. If the devices are successfully connected with the extender, then those devices will start displaying the internet page.
