  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.

I had the best experience I have every had. My computer got hacked, the technical support team did a fantastic job at removing network issues, optimized my system and installed the webroot security protection for my entire system and all devices. The personal support I received was second to none and worth every dollar I spent. Thanks again!!!

This service is the easiest and most friendly anyone could hope for. I have had a few instances to use the service due to moving and equipment purchases.

There is nothing that cannot be taken care of by Austin, my technician.

I highly recommend using this service no matter what your personal skill level.
