  • In order to setup your linksys range extender with your router you need to follow the following steps:
    > Plug your extender near to the router for the initial setup
    > Connect your computer to the Extenders Default SSID wirlessly
    > pull up a browser and at the very top on the long address bar type in
    > You will get to the login screen for your extender the default password is admin
    > you will come to the setup page follow the setup instructions
    > once the setup is complete plug your extender to the place where you want it
    > connect your devices to the extended wifi and see if the internet works.

    Note : make sure the distance between your router and the extender should not exceed more than 20-25 feets.

  • You can use WPS ( wifi protected setup) method to make the connection between your Linksys router and Range extender.

    – You will find a WPS button on your router So, press it and hold it for three seconds then release.
    ( WPS light will start to blink on your router.)
    – Now do the same with your WPS button on your Range extender.
    (You will see a blinking WPS light on your Range extender.)
    – Now it will take 1-2 minutes to setup your range extender and router.
    – Once the Range extender is setup the name and ssid will be something like this.
    If your routers name is Linksys wifi router then the name of the range extender will be Linksys wifi router_EXT and the password will be same as your router.

  • To setup your Linksys Re 6500 extender kindly follow these steps:-
    1.Plug your Range Extender into a power outlet near your main Router.
    2.Push the WPS button on your main Router first, then immediately push the WPS button on your Range Extender.
    3. After you have pushed WPS button of your Router, you need to push WPS button of your Range Extender within 2 minutes. .
    4.After pushing the WPS button of your Router, your Router WPS LED should blink. If your Router WPS LED doesn’t blink, it means you need to push the WPS button again until the WPS LED of your Router blinks. The same reason is also suitable for RE product. After pushing the WPS button of your Range Extender, the WPS light of your Range Extender should blink. If not, push again.
    5.The WPS process will last 2 minutes. You can wait 2 minutes, and then check the wireless signal LED of your Range Extender.
    5. After 2 minutes, if the wireless signal LED of your Range Extender is still off, it means the WPS process fails. You may need to try one more or several more times of WPS operation, and repeat the steps above.
    6. At last, you can put your Range Extender in a proper place where you want to extend the wireless network’s coverage, and enjoy the extended wireless network. No need to repeat the process. Once it’s done, it will connect automatically every time you plug it back in.
