Can I access EX6120 admin from LAN computer?

I have a Netgear R6300v2, which my EX6120 connects to. Installation was successful, however I have noticed that if I want to log into the EX6120, I have to connect to that device with a wireless device. If I try with any other computer on my network, that is connected to my R6300v2, the webpage request cannot connect.

 

Using mywifiext.net and the IP 192.168.0.250 fails, from any computer not directly connected to the EX6120.

 

Is this by design?
If not, can I access the device from a computer connected to my R6300v2, which is extended by the EX6120?

 

I can see the EX6120 listed as a connected device, on my R6300v2 admin page. So I know it can been seen, just that PING tests and web page requests fail to access the device.

It is by design for mywifiext.net.

 

But you should be able to use the IP address of the extender. 

Did you check the router's attached device list, and look for the extender there?

Also, is your router assigning 192.168.0.x IP address, or is it assigning addresses in a different range (192.168.1.x or perhaps 10.0.0.x)?
