How to Setup Netgear N600 WiFi Range Extender?
A range extender such as the Netgear N600 is one of the best ways to eliminate dead zones in your network. The main purpose of this device is to eliminate dead zones in your home, allowing you to get high-speed internet access to areas that cannot be covered by your home router.
You can set up your Netgear N600 range extender using either mywifiext, i.e. Netgear installation assistant or through the Nighthawk app. Let’s walk you through both methods one by one.
1. Netgear N600 Extender Setup Using Netgear Installation Assistant
In order to access the Netgear installation assistant, you will need an updated version of a web browser. Here is a step-by-step guide that will explain how to set up your Netgear N600 WiFi range extender:
Step 1 – Make Wired Connections
As a first step, you will need to connect your Netgear N600 WiFi extender to the existing router in order to install it. There is a need for an Ethernet cable for this purpose, and for that you will need one. It is simply a matter of inserting one end of the cable into your extender, while the other end is inserted into your router. While making a wired connection between your Netgear extender and router, it is recommended to keep your Netgear extender and router off while making the connection.
It is also important that the Ethernet cable you use to connect your computer to the network is free from dust and damage. That would be great if you could use the Ethernet cable that was included in the box of your extender. In order for your Netgear N600 range extender to work properly, it should be connected to your existing router with a strong and accurate cable connection.
Step 2 – Put Your WiFi Devices on Power
The next step is to turn on the Netgear N600 wireless range extender and router after you have connected the cable to your computer. It is important that the wall outlets you use are not short-circuited so that you do not experience any problems.
Step 3 – Get Access to a Web Browser
Depending on how often you use your laptop or computer, you should now turn it on. In order to open a web browser, double-click on its icon. You will need to download a browser first if you do not already have one installed on your computer.
After launching a web browser, type mywifiext.local or mywifiext.net in the URL bar. The next step requires you to hit the Enter key.
Step 4 – Log in to Your N600 Extender
We would like to welcome you to the Netgear N600 extender login page. In the first field, you will need to enter the user ID and in the second field, you will need to enter the passphrase.

Simply follow each of them one by one and you will be able to complete the process in no time at all.
