Have you ever come across a set of digits 192.168.254.254? Well, this is an IP address. A technically challenged person can compare the IP addresses of networking devices with the postal addresses of houses that help devices to identify each other on the internet. Devices from Actiontec, Sagemcom, and Vocnets run on the same IP address. You can use these devices as a host gateway for the Netgear extender and expand the home network. It means you can also use this IP address for setting up a Netgear extender. However, it is not possible directly.
We have discussed in this blog that how you can use this IP address for beginning the extender setup. But, our major concern is shedding light on the importance this IP address holds and how to access it. We will further reveal what to do if this particular IP address fails to work for you.
We’ve already mentioned the name of the products that use this specific IP address. Now, walk through these steps to know the process of using this particular IP address. For your information, this IP address will let you access the management console of your router or gateway that will further make you aware of the IP address assigned to the Netgear extender.
As soon as you take notes of the IP address of your range extender, start configuring it. This is to inform you that the IP assigned to the extender will be in the range of the routerlogin (gateway) IP. It means the IP of your extender will be 192.168.254.x. But, what will you do if the IP of your default gateway works for you? In that case, you need to find that IP address via the Command Prompt of your PC. Else, follow the hacks mentioned in the upcoming section.
If the computer is hardwired to your gateway, you can simply open Command Prompt and type the command “ipconfig/all”. A few results will be displayed the moment you hit the Enter key on the keyboard. From there, you can find the IP of your gateway adjacent to the Default Gateway field.
After taking care of the aforementioned things, you will get successful in accessing the 192.168.254.254 IP address. Just in case you are still failing, check if the IP address has been input into the address bar or not. If not, then rectify your mistake. After that, you can proceed with the Netgear extender setup.
The setup process of your extender can be begun right after you get successful in visiting 192.168.254.254 IP address. For this, you need to connect your PC/laptop to the WiFi network flaunted by your Netgear extender i.e. Netgear_ext. To know about the WiFi password, you can refer to the label of the product. Once you get connected, open a web browser and access the IP address you’ve taken notes of from the management panel of your gateway.Tags: 192.168.254.254 login, Routerlogin
