Step 1:
Set up your Linksys E9450.

Before you begin, take note of the following: 
 
  • The Linksys E9450 router that is connected to the ONT is called the parent node.  Other Linksys E9450 routers that you will use to extend the WiFi are called child nodes.
  • You can either use a wired computer or a wireless device (e.g., a laptop, tablet or a smartphone) to set up the router.
  • To set up the Linksys E9450 using a wireless device, you first need to remember the default WiFi name and password of the router.  These are located on the router’s product label.  The default WiFi names of the router are Linksysxxxxx-guest and Linksysxxxxx_5GHz-guest (where xxxxx represents the last five digits of the router’s serial number).

Step 2:
Check where your internet connection is coming from.  If you are using a Singtel ONT, disconnect and remove your old router.

Step 3:
Power OFF your ONT.  

Step 4:
Connect the Linksys E9450 to your ONT using an ethernet cable.

NOTE:  Connect one end of the ethernet cable into the yellow-labeled internet (WAN) port of the Linksys E9450 and the other end to the ethernet (LAN) port of the ONT.


Step 5:
Power ON your router and wait for its power and WiFi indicator lights to turn solid blue.

Step 6:
Using an ethernet cable, connect a computer into one of the ethernet (LAN) ports of your Linksys E9450.

NOTE:  If you are using a wireless device to set up the router, connect that wireless device to the default WiFi name of the router and log in using the password from the Linksys E9450's product label.

Step 7:
Launch a web browser, enter “192.168.79.1” in the Address bar, and hit [ENTER].

NOTE:  The default username and password is:  admin.

Step 8:
Follow the steps in the setup wizard of Linksys E9450.
 
  • If you reach the page shown below during the setup wizard process, click Go to the Internet settings to continue the setup.
 
User-added image
 
NOTE:  By default, the Linksys E9450 runs in DHCP WAN mode without VLAN tag.  This page may appear when Linksys E9450 is installed with Singtel ONT that requires VLAN tag.
  • Select the Singtel profile then click on Apply to save changes.
 
User-added image
 
  • The Singtel profile will have a feature to support the Singtel TV STB to work.  It also has an incorporated multi VLAN on WAN interface.
  • If you ever need to run the setup wizard again, just reset the router.  For instructions on how to reset your Linksys E9450 to factory default settings, click here or scan the QR code below.
