  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.

  10. A password window prompted. Enter the password and click next.
  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.
