Default www.mywifiext.net not working

Trying to upgrade firmware per included documentation in WN2500RP using www.mywifiext.net in order to access NETGEAR Genie to select "Firmware Update". Not able to (read: not tech-savvy enough) to update manually.

Thoughts?

Make sure you are connected to extender network (wired or wireless) before you can access the GUI. If www.mywifiext.net is not working, then try http://192.168.1.250

I think this may be the SUBNET problem that is now being discussed in a thread titled: Can't access Extender via www.mywifiext.net

Default It must be me, it must! (just plain stupid)

I have WN3000 repeater.
So I managed to connect to a WiFi and it works great.
Now I am trying to prevent my whole neighborhood using my WN3000.

So I follow the instructions and more instructions but can not manage to open the administrator page.
Each time I enter one of the following:
http://www.routerlogin.net in or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
I get an error, and I see it is trying to log in to the router not in the Repeater!

The www.mywifiext.net brings me to the Netgear web page.

Another member said to use www.mywifiext.com (not .net) and it worked!

Since this post still seems relevant today, I'll add what I did to access mywifiext.net (Which basically makes it able you to configure the settings of your wireless extender).

When I was messing around in the Network and Sharing Center (Control Panel> Network and Internet> Network and Sharing Center) I clicked See full map, which in my case was for the wireless internet connection NETGEAR_EXT. Looking in there, I saw the entire network map. My computer was connected to the extender (WN2500RP) and there to a switch and others, but the switch was connected to another icon called WN2500RP. I simply clicked on that icon, which opened my web browser with an IP address, and it that led me to what the mywifiext.net would be!!
