• It is important to ensure that the cable you are using to connect your extender and router is in good condition and free of any cuts or damage.

• It is imperative that there be no slack in any of the cable connections.

• If you’re having trouble getting into your Netgear WiFi range extender, you can also try using a different web browser.

• Conduct a speed test on the connection you use to access the internet. It’s possible that the reason you can’t access the website is because it moves at a snail’s pace.
