NOTE:  In the steps below, a Linksys RE7350 on factory defaults was used.

 
Step 1:
Plug the range extender into a wall outlet and wait for the light to start blinking orange. 

Step 2:
Connect a computer or a mobile device to the range extender's default WiFi name, which is Linksys Extender Setup – xxx.
 
NOTE:  The xxx represents the last three characters of your range extender's MAC address which is located on the label at the back of the device. 

 
Step 3:
Open a web browser and enter "192.168.1.1", "http://extender.linksys.com" or "http://RE7350-xxx" (the xxx represents the last three characters of the range extender’s MAC address).  Then click or tap the Manual Setup link on the range extender's setup page.
