The web-based setup website – – is used to complete the Linksys wifi Extender Setup. WiFi range extenders are specially designed to resolve the issue of WiFi dead spots. The WiFi signals from your network router are amplified by these devices before being transmitted to the connected devices. The strength of WiFi signals increases as a result and penetration loss is reduced as well.

Logging into the web-based Linksys range extender setup interface is the first step in the setup. 

The following are the actions to take in order to log in:

  • Using the power cable, connect the extender to the power supply. Wait until the lights have stabilized.
  • Connect a computer or laptop to the Ethernet port on your Linksys extender using an Ethernet cable or CAT cable.
  • Check for any cuts in the Ethernet cable and that the Ethernet ports are operational.
  • The connections should be as tight as a fingernail.
  • Now open your computer’s web browser and input extender.linksys.setup into the address box.
  • When you press Enter, you’ll be prompted for a login and password.
  • If you haven’t customized your credentials, they will be “admin” and “password.” (If you forget your password or if it claims the username or password is incorrect, contact professionals.)
  • Click “Login” after providing your credentials.
  • After a few moments, you’ll be directed to the setup page for Linksys extender setup.
