  3. Position your extender midway between area without Wi-Fi and your router. Make sure your extender is in the range of your router’s network.
  4. Turn on your extender and wait till the power LED turns solid green.
  5. Turn on your computer and connect it to the range extender’s network. You will see the network name or SSID of your Linksys extender in the available list of network. Connect to it.
  6. From this device, launch a web browser. Type or in the address bar.
  7. A setup screen displays. Click on the start button. On the next screen, accept terms and condition or License Agreement.

  11. Configure your extender network. Default names will be created for each band. You can alter the same.
  12. Create an admin password and you can also give some hint for that. Click next to proceed.

I have dealt with (other) IT Tech support occasionally for 30 years, this has been the best experience with IT Support. They (he) resolved every issue, including malicious spyware hacks. I am sold on these guys 100%. I am 100% Texas, and had no difficulty communicating with Austin. Recommend him highly! Won't ever go back to best buy support (geek squad, or any other support folks)
