Yes, without any doubt, without exploring much, straightaway opt for the Netgear EX2700 WiFi range extender. This is one of the most outstanding devices that is meant for every home, office, apartment, etc. (no matter big or small). After Netgear EX2700 setup, you will get amazing results that you have never expected before.
Netgear EX2700 is the extender that is capable of covering dead zones into fun zones. What else we can say about this extender? Buy it and experience the change yourself.
I have bought the Netgear extender? What to do now? Well, the next step after purchasing the Netgear EX2700 WiFi range extender is to configure it.
Here are the steps to perform Netgear extender setup process in a hassle-free way:
- After getting the Netgear extender, you have to unbox it.
- Once you are done, choose a working wall outlet for the extender.
If you choose a wall outlet near to your existing router that would be better. Because for Netgear EX2700 setup, you have to connect your extender to the router using an Ethernet cable. And, it will only be possible if you have two working outlets near to each other. What? I don’t have them! What to do now! Why fear? Use extension instead! Will that be ok?
Now, as soon as you connect your devices using an Ethernet source, you can see that the Ethernet LED on your extender and router has started blinking, right? You have to wait till they become stable.
Here’s to hope that the Ethernet LED on your devices has become stable? Now, what you have to do:
- Turn on a WiFi-enabled device
- Open a web browser of your choice
- Enter mywifiext.net in the address bar
If you are an Apple, iOS, or MacBook user, use mywifiext.local.
But, there are some important things that you have to remember:
- Only use a device that software version is up-to-date.
- Do not use an outdated internet browser. Otherwise, you might get mywifiext.net or mywifiext.net local not working issue.
- Another thing that you can do is to close all the opened/ pinned tabs and clear your browsing history from the browser.
After applying the tips listed above, restart the device that you are using to access the web address.
- Now, after that, press the Enter key so that you can get redirected to the new extender setup window.
Upon reaching the setup page of your Netgear EX2700 extender, you can see a login popup has been displayed, right? Provide the default login details of your Netgear device into the correct fields and click Log In after that. Wait! Options can be Done or OK as well (depending upon the WiFi device you are using).
Why the default details? I have personalized them already! Ok! No issues! You can use them instead. And, we would appreciate for taking such a vast decision. Default login details can increase the risk of hacking.
You will now get redirected to the Netgear Genie setup page. Just follow the Netgear extender setup instructions as provided as per the model number i.e. EX2700, and make the most out of your device.
Now, the most important step! After performing the NetgearEX2700 set up in a successful manner, update its firmware right away.

Wait! The article isn’t over yet! And, with this last tip, we are going to end this article. Look, you have configured your Netgear extender in a successful manner, right? And, you have updated the firmware version as well! But, that’s not enough! Configuration is the one-time process but updating its firmware is a lifetime process. Yes, that’s correct! For the well working of the extender, you have to keep checking for regular firmware updates. And, whenever you find it, update it.
Apart from this, power cycling of your Netgear extender is also important. So, in every 15 days, please give your EX2700 (or any extender model) a fresh restart.
