Setting up the Linksys EA7300 v2 through the Linksys app

The Linksys app allows you to monitor and manage your Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Routers.  With the Linksys app, you can access your home network anywhere, anytime.
 
Before you begin:
 
  • Make sure internet access is working.
  • Power OFF your modem.  If you are replacing your existing router, make sure to disconnect it and move it out of the way.  Connect your modem to the internet port of your new router using an ethernet cable.  Plug the power adapter of both your modem and your new router.
  • Your router’s antennas should be in the upright position.
  • Have the router’s default Wi-Fi name and password ready.  This is located at the bottom of the router or on its Quick Start Guide.
