Setup Requirements
  • Active internet connection

    • Latest version of Internet Explorer®, Google Chrome™, Firefox®, Safari® (for Mac or iPad®), Microsoft Edge®
    • Latest Adobe® Flash® Player
  • Latest iOS or Android™ mobile device
  • Latest Linksys app
NOTE:  If you have an existing Linksys parent node such as Linksys WHW01 or WHW03, you need to set up your Linksys MR9000 as the parent node.  To do this, you can either reset all your other nodes and add them as child nodes or power them all OFF and power them back ON when your Linksys MR9000 is set up to parent mode with the same Wi-Fi credentials.  If a Linksys Mesh router (either Linksys MR8300 or Linksys MR9000) is already configured as the parent node, you can set up another Linksys MR9000 as a child node.
