Welcome to JustAnswer.

I would recommend that you start over, on the back of the device there is a little RESET pin hole use a small PIN and hold it down for about 30 seconds then it will reset the device to default.

Now once it is on default use a separate computer and CONNECT wirelessly to the NETGEAR_EXT then once it is connected then open a new web-browser window and type http://www.mywifiext.net or http://www.mywifiext.com and try again then finish the install.

Thanks

How do i find NETGEAR_EXT on a separate computer ??
Expert:  TechGrant replied 4 years ago.
Just SCAN for the wireless NETWORKS then you should see NETGEAR_EXT that is the default name for the extender.

This file name is ***** ***** my laptop where i have installed my extender software,the other computer is where my rooter is connected. I got confused when you said I should use a separate computer.

Expert:  TechGrant replied 4 years ago.
Sorry for the confusing. Normally when I set these up I get a laptop or another computer then turn on the range extender it will automatically broadcast the NETGEAR_EXT then I will conntect to it then goto the www.mywifiext.net then set it up from there and bypass the CD all together. That make sense?

Still not working I did everything you said I should do, can't excess both sites mywifiext.net & .com

Expert:  TechGrant replied 4 years ago.

Interesting, now you connected to the wireless name of Netgear_EXT on your lap[top right then opened up the browser and tried http://www.mywifiext.net or .com?

Got to make sure you connect to the default Wireless SSID name of NETGEAR_EXT that is the only way the link works.

Could you give me your Model number of the extender? Thanks

MODEL WN2000RPTv2

Ok, lets try accessing the IP of the device then. Connect to the netgear_EXT or directly to the unit then open the web-browser window then type http://192.168.1.250 in the address bar and hit enter.

If ti ask for a username and password ***** admin for the username and password ***** the password.

That should get you in, let me know if not.
