Setup Linksys RE6300 Extender as Extender mode is now made simple with the below steps. Setting up your extender doesn’t need any software installation or drive setup because in the below steps we are setting up the extender through web based setup feature. All you need is a strong Wi-Fi connection and its username and password.
Before you start the set up process, make sure that your Linksys RE6300 Extender has a blinking orange light.
NOTE: The xxx represents the last three characters of the Linksys RE6300’s MAC address. This can be found on the label at the back of the device.
NOTE: If your Wi-Fi is also using a 5 GHz band, you should see it with the 2.4 GHz band.
NOTE: If you have a hidden SSID, scroll all the way down the list and click Manually Enter Network Name and Password in the field and then click on Next. Otherwise, wait until it detects your Wi-Fi.
NOTE: The extended wireless network is the Wi-Fi that your range extender will broadcast for nearby networks to connect to.
