How Does Setting Up Netgear Extender Resolve Your Internet Issues?
Slow Internet Connection In Specific Areas?
Is your internet connection playing games with you?
Is it working just fine in some rooms, whereas in others it’s being completely nonexistent?
Well, there can be a number of why this might be happening. But, the major reason would be a hell of interference. So, make sure that you place your Netgear WiFi range extender away from microwaves, cordless phones, baby monitors, electronic devices, washing machines, etc. It is recommended that you place your extender in the center-most location of your residence.
Cross-Check the Default IP Address
Sometimes, a wrong IP address can also lead to the internet connection issue. If you’ve entered even one incorrect numeral while typing the IP address, you will come face to face with either ‘the site can’t be reached’ or ‘internet connection not working’ issue.
Thus, it’s quite important for you to enter the correct IP address 192.168.1.250 if you want to successfully log in to your Netgear range extender.
iOS Device Not Connecting to the Internet?
Your computer and laptop have successfully connected to the internet, but for some reason, your iOS device isn’t. What the hell is going on?
In order to get rid of this issue and connect your iOS device to the internet, reboot your internet connection. Then, access mywifiext.local through your iOS device and connect to the Netgear range extender.
Why Does the Netgear Extender Keep Shutting Off?
After using your Netgear range extender for a while, have you noticed that it shuts off out of the blue? If yes, then know that it’s because of over-heating.
When a technical device has been running for straight 24 hours, it’s only normal for it to get sick. So, make sure that you give some rest to your Netgear extender. Unplug it, wait for a couple of minutes, and plug it back in again.
Tadaa! Problem solved.
