Can’t Connect to Admin Page after Netgear EX7300 Reset. Help!
EX7300 is one of the most trusted products rolled out by Netgear. Recently, a user owning the same range extender complained that he couldn’t connect to the admin page or the mobile app after Netgear EX7300 reset.
Well, the problem we’ve just mentioned is not restricted to a particular model of the extender. Are you also facing the same issue? If yes, then it must be known to you that the problem is not a biggie. With a few hit and trials, you will be able to resolve it. Read on.
Why You Can’t Connect to Admin Page after Netgear EX7300 Reset?
The most probable reason why you are facing issues connecting to the admin page or the Nighthawk mobile app is that you have not connected your client device to the extender’s network. Once the Netgear Nighthawk EX7300 range extender factory reset process is completed, you are supposed to join the network name Netgear_ext. This is to inform you that the192.168.1.250 IP for your extender becomes inaccessible unless you complete this task. The same rule also works when it comes to using the Netgear Nighthawk application for the extender’s network management via a mobile phone.
Now, try to reach the admin page of your EX7300 wireless range extender and check if you are able to do that or not. If not, then the problem might have happened because of some other reasons. To know about them and relevant solutions, you are suggested to take the help of the next section.
Solutions: Can’t Connect to Admin Page after Netgear EX7300 Reset
Use the Correct IP
The point is applicable to users who wish to access the extender’s admin page via a computer. But, above that, there is a point that users miss in 90% of the cases. They forget that when they connect the Netgear extender and the router using a wired connection, the extender gets a new IP address. Hence, its admin page becomes inaccessible via the default IP address. In that case, he/she needs to log in to the router first and figure out the IP address assigned to the EX7300 range extender.
In addition to that, during an attempt to find the IP address assigned to your Netgear EX7300 Nighthawk extender, just make sure that your computer is connected to the router’s network. Plus, you should follow the rule of connecting the computer and extender if you are trying to reach the administrative page of your EX7300 extender.
Note: The platform you are using to access the extender is supposed to flaunt the latest version. The point needs to be followed no matter whether you are using the Nighthawk app or a web browser to reach the extender’s dashboard.
Set Up the Extender via WPS
If you are still unable to connect to the administrative page of your EX7300 Nighthawk range extender, then we suggest you make it up and running via the WPS method first. The WPS method does not require you to use the Nighthawk app or the web address like mywifiext.net. To set up your range extender with the help of the WPS approach, you just need to press this button. Due to this very ease of access, the WPS method is also known as the Push button method.
To make things happen, first of all, place your Nighthawk EX7300 extender close to the main router. Once done, power up both devices one by one. Look for the router’s WPS button and press it. After that, press the Netgear extender’s WPS button. You might need to press the WPS button again if your host router supports dual bands.
The Final Words
Many reports regarding the inaccessibility of the admin page or the Nighthawk app after the Netgear extender reset have received. But, it never means that you consider it as an end of the internet usage experience. All you have to do is have some patience and connect your computer/mobile phone to the extender’s network. If that fails to help you out, you can go with the WPS approach of setting up the range extender. Restarting can also help you make things fall in place.
You are suggested to do Netgear EX7300 reset with the 30-30-30 approach if the problems are still there. This method is all about doing the extender reset 3 times with the gap of 30 seconds. If you don’t know how to reset the extender, then disconnect all the connected devices and press its Reset button with the help of a paper clip or a pin. Once the extender resets, reset it two more times. Lastly, pick up your favorite method and initiate the setup process again. This time you will be able to access the admin page of the Netgear extender EX7300 for sure.
