Linksys RE6700 Extender Setup
2 ways to setup the extender:
•WPS Setup (Wi-fi Protected Setup)
•Web-Based Setup (192.168.1.1 or extender Linksys.com)
Linksys Extender WPS Setup (Wi-fi Protected Setup)
Use the WPS setup if the router supports the WPS or has a WPS button on it. It’s easy and instant. Grab the extender in the same room as the router and turn it on, once it boots up and flashes blinking amber on it press the WPS button on the router, and afterward press the WPS button on the extender.
Linksys Extender Setup light will start blinking in green color signifies WPS is in progress and trying to connect with the router. On a successful setup, the extender light will be solid green that signifies a successful connection.
If the extender light turns off then try the WPS again. on setup extender wifi names suffix _ext to their names and hence can be identified uniquely.
Linksys Extender Web-Based Linksys Extender Setup:
We prefer the web-based setup if the WPS method is not working. To begin, grab a laptop and connect the extender with the laptop using an Ethernet cable or wirelessly. To connect wirelessly look for the wifi name “Linksys Extender Setup” in the wifi list and if it doesn’t appear reset the Linksys RE6700 Setup and try again. Once the extender is connected to the computer open a website extender linksys.com and follow the onscreen prompts. This is the manual way to setup an extender and hence selection of wifi name to extend, its password, and other information will be required.
Once the extender is setup an Ethernet cable can be removed between the laptop and extender and the extender can be placed at its desired location. While placing the extender ensure it remains in the wireless range of the router. In the new location, if the extender light is steady green it’s the right location but if it’s solid amber, the extender needs to move near to the router. Solid green light is the only sign of setup and working extender.
