  • Select - clicking the radio button beside the WiFi name selects the SSID.
  • SSID - displays the name of available WiFi.
  • GHz - indicates the radio band of available WiFi.
  • Signal - displays the relative position of the available networks within range by indicating the power of the wireless signal received.

    QUICK TIP:  If a signal with no green bar is displayed, the Linksys range extender is located too far from the router.  For optimum performance, place your range extender near the router to keep the signal strength between 60% and 100%.

  • Connect - clicking this button lets you connect to the selected SSID.
