Setting up the Linksys wireless range extender is easy and could be done in few minutes. Linksys wireless range extender could be setup manually or automatically. We could setup the Linksys wireless range extender manually by using the web-based setup on any desktop computer or a laptop. But if we want to setup the Linksys wireless range extender automatically, we have to use the wireless protected setup (WPS). Wireless protected setup is generally faster than the web-based setup. So, if we want to setup the Linksys wireless range extender quickly, we should always use the wireless protected setup (WPS).
Wireless protected setup (WPS)
While following the wireless protected setup, the Linksys wireless range extender and our existing home router should be close to each other so that the Linksys wireless range extender could receive proper signals from the home Wi-Fi router needed for the its installation. Ideally, the Linksys wireless range extender and the router should be in a same room during the initial setup. After that we have to locate the WPS buttons on the Linksys wireless range extender as well as on our home Wi-Fi router.
Few steps to follow while using WPS
After locating the WPS button on the router, we have to press and hold it for three seconds. Then, within two minutes of pressing the WPS on the router, we have to press the WPS button on the Linksys wireless range extender as for three seconds. After that, the Linksys wireless range extender and the router will start communicating with each other. It can take up to two minutes to apply all the settings on the Linksys wireless range extender. After couple of minutes, the Linksys wireless range extender will start working and ready to use.
Placing the Linksys wireless range extender
The last step after using the wireless protected setup would be placing the Linksys wireless range extender somewhere inside our home. The Linksys wireless range extender should be placed in such a position from where it could send and receive Wi-Fi signals without any interruption. The ideal location to place the Linksys wireless range extender would be midway between the point where our router is and the point where we are having problems in Wi-Fi signal reception. Once placed in such location, the Linksys wireless range extender will start boosting the wifi signals all around our home.
