If you don’t know what mywifiext local is, then it is a local web address that is used to set up Netgear WiFi Range Extender. You need to understand that an extender is a plug and play device, where you don’t have to connect too many cables and wires. The connection between extender and router can be established with the help of Netgear Extender Setup Assistant wizard or by pressing the ‘WPS’ button on both, the router as well as an extender. Once both the devices are connected, you will have to connect the extender to the computer using an Ethernet cable. Once that is done, you will have to launch a web browser on your computer.
Now, if you are using a Mac computer, then you will have to enter mywifiext local in the address bar. Netgear has created two websites for setting up an extender, mywifiext local, and my wifiext net. Where the former is for Mac, the latter is for Windows. If you are unable to access mywifiext local web address on your Mac computer, then you should check whether the internet is working on your computer or not. If it is, then check if the web address entered by you is correct. If both things are OK, then you should consult experts for quick and reliable assistance.
