Before you start the setup process, make sure you have the following:

  • A wireless computer, tablet, or smartphone for setup

Plug the Linksys range extender into a power outlet.  Wait for the light to change to blinking orange.

Step 2:

Step 3:
In your computer or mobile device, open a browser and enter "" or "" in the Address bar and press [Enter] to launch the setup.

The Spot Finder page only appears on Range Extender mode.  This feature determines the signal strength between your range extender and your router.  If your range extender is too far, unplug and move it closer to your router.  Then, reconnect to the range extender’s default WiFi name and access the web-based setup page.
If you get the following messages, you may click on Connect anyway to complete the setup.  Keep in mind that you still have to move the range extender according to the Spot Finder’s results.
