Users change, but the problem remains similar. A lot of Netgear extender userscomplaint that they cannot complete the login after upgrading the firmware to the latest version. If you too are facing such a problem, welcome to this ultimate guide. It will discuss some important tips that can help you address the issue effectively.

Fix: Can’t Log in to Mywifiext after Firmware Update on EX6200v2

Before you start implementing any of the troubleshooting technique that we are going to highlight, it is recommended that you clear the cache and cookies of the web browser. This is because at times, the browser loads a cached version of the extender’s admin page due to which problem shows up. Cache and cookies can be deleted from the settings of your browser.

1. Restart the Extender

The extender reboots as a part of the firmware update process. But, it seems that you did not let the process get completed and as a result you cannot log in to mywifiext. Therefore, we suggest you reboot your Netgear extender. The process is very easy. You just have to unplug your WiFi extender from its respective socket and wait for a few moments. Do not forget to connect your extender back to its respective wall socket. Try to access the Netgear extender login page and see if you can log in now.

2. Check the Internet Connection

There is a chance there is a slight fluctuation in the internet connection you are getting on your PC. May be the Ethernet cable you have connected to the extender and PC for the firmware update process has become loose. Therefore, you are suggested to ensure that the connection is finger-tight. Do yourself a little favor and also check for cuts on the cable. It should be free of damages.

3. Change the Connection Source

Did you try connecting your PC and Netgear extender remotely? There are times when the login process fails because of a problem with a particular connection source. Therefore, remove the Ethernet connection between your PC and Netgear extender. Try to connect your PC to the WiFi network broadcasted by your extender and see if you can log in this time. If not, refer to the next troubleshooting technique.

Do not forget that the login credentials play an important role in deciding the success of the Netgear extender login process. You will only be able to log in to your extender if you use the correct admin details. If the extender is running on the default admin info, the username is “admin” and the password is “password”.

4. Update the Firmware Again

There is a high possibility that the firmware file you uploaded on the extender does not actually belong to the extender model you own. This is to inform you that you have to upload the correct firmware file on your extender after completing the Netgear Genie login process. Therefore, update the firmware of your Netgear extender once again. Upload the correct file this time. Uploading the incorrect firmware file multiple times can make your extender non-working forever and you will be left with nothing in your hand.

The Conclusion

Know that these tips are equally applicable no matter whether you have an EX6200v2 extender or have installed some other Netgear extender model.

It means reset the extender 3 times.
