Why Can’t I Access Mywifiext?

You can’t access mywifiext because you are not using extensions with it.

“What kind of extensions”?

The Netgear extender’s default web address i.e. mywifiext will not work if you are using it as it is. So, to make it working, use the web address like:

www.mywifiext.net or mywifiext.net

“I have tried logging in to my Netgear extender using www.mywifiext.net, but it is not working. Then, I used mywifiext.net, it is also not working”.

No worries! We have got you covered! We will provide you everything that will help you to fix the non-working of the web address in minutes. Are you ok with it?


Let’s start from the beginning!

Which Netgear extender model you have?

“Netgear EX3700 extender!”

Where do you find that you are not able to access the web address?

“I saw in Netgear extender manual that for the configuration of the Netgear EX3700, there is a need to access the web address.”

Ok, so you are not able to perform the Netgear EX3700 setup process because of non-working of the web address, right?

“Yes, absolutely!”

So, tell me, is your Netgear extender receiving a steady power supply?

“Yes, it is!”

Is the power fluctuating or operating on an inverter?

“No, everything is fine!”

And what about the wall outlet?

“It is well-working!”

Are your Netgear extender and router properly connected?


Got you! This is the first mistake that you have committed. To access the web address for Netgear EX3700 setup without any hassle, there is a need to connect your extender and router in a proper manner.

“And how am I suppose to do that?”

Using an Ethernet cable!

“Can’t I connect them wirelessly?”

No, not now! Only after Netgear extender configuration!

Are you accessing Netgear_ext?

“No, what is this?”

Netgear_ext is the default SSID of your Netgear EX3700 extender.

“Where can I find it”?

On the list of available and active networks!

“I can’t see it! There are more than seven SSIDs, but Netgear_ext is not visible!”

No problem! First of all, disconnect/ forget all the unknown SSID by navigating to your WiFi settings.

“Done! But, Netgear_Ext is still not visible!”

Have you changed it?


Then chances are that it is hidden! Check it once and unhide/ enable it!

Here’s to hope that Netgear_ext is now visible?

“Yes, I can see it now!”

Open a web browser!

“On my smartphone?”

No, on a desktop or laptop!

“Ok, I have opened Google Chrome on my laptop!”

Is the laptop’s software up-to-date?

“I am not sure! Is it essential?”

Yes, very much!

“My laptop doesn’t need an update!”

Ok, it means that it is up-to-date already!

“Yes, maybe! Do I have to update the internet browser as well?”

Not only you have to update the internet browser, but also you have to wipe out the browsing history and close/unpin the tabs that aren’t needed.

“Ok, give me 5 minutes!”

Take your time!

“Now what?”

Are you all set?


Restart your laptop and relaunch Google Chrome. Once you are done, hover the mouse cursor to the browser address bar and type www.mywifiext.net or mywifiext.net.

“Why can’t I use the search bar for the same?”

Doing so will not redirect you to the new extender setup window. As a result, you will never complete the Netgear EX3700 setup process.

“And, what about the address bar?”

You will be directly taken to the new extender setup window where you have to follow a couple on on-screen instructions to complete the Netgear EX3700 setup process.

“I have followed your tips but still the web address is not working for me!”

Then, you must be committing typing errors!

“No, I have checked the web address thoroughly after entering it!”

What is seen is not what happens! So, the only way to prevent tying errors is to copy the web address and paste it in the URL bar.

Is the web address accessible?

“Yes, thank you so much! I will share all the tips you provided me here with whosoever are getting issues while accessing mywifiext.”

“Now, what would be the next step?”

Have you completed the Netgear EX3700 setup process?

“Yes, by following the on-screen instructions! It was much easier than I thought!

Our pleasure! 

Well then, you are done!
