Linksys Extender Setup Configuration
If you’ve just received your new extender and are having trouble finding out how to set it up, don’t worry it’s simple and convenient. Before we get into the setup instructions on how you want to set up the extender If the extender.Linksys.setup page is unavailable, go to the Linksys Extender Setup Page (LinksysExtender.Link). There are two methods for configuring the extender, depending on the distance between the router and the extender or how the user intends to utilize it. There are two options:
- Setup of a Range Extender
- Configuration of the Access Point
The primary distinction is that an access point is a wired setup, which means there is a permanent Ethernet cable connection between the router and the extender, and a range extender is a wireless setup, which means there is no such cable.
To use the Linksys extender as a range extender, turn it on and wait for it to completely power up. We recommend using the WPS technique to quickly and easily set up the extender. It’s as simple as butter. Set the extension near the router and check both devices for the WPS button. Simply press the WPS button on the router and the extension within 30 seconds, and you’re done. The extension will be connected to the router and may now be relocated to the desired position.
Connect the extension to the router by plugging it in at the appropriate place; no more procedures are required.
If your router and extender are both dual-band, repeat the WPS process to extend both bands.
If the WPS technique does not work, we can use the web browser to set it up. A wifi-enabled gadget is necessary for this.
- To begin, turn on the extender and wait for it to switch on.
- Open ‘Linksys Extender Setup’ and connect any wifi device.
- Open your browser and type extender.Linksys.setup into the address bar.
- A page for setting up the extension will display.
- Select the wifi network you want to extend and enter its password.
- Choose the name and password for the extender wifi network.
- To safeguard the extender settings, provide a password for the extender login.

Is the WPS button on the router missing?
What if there isn’t a WPS button on the router? Don’t worry, go to the router’s page and search for the WPS button. This WPS button is located in the router’s wireless section and is frequently referred to as a push-button.
