Wireless networks are a necessity in every house these days. Often Wi-Fi range remains an issue due to one reason or the other. To address signal issues, you must get a Linksys RE3000W extender for your house. The extender s capable of removing signal issues for up to significant distances. In other words, the extender is capable of increasing the wireless signals in a zone of no signal. You can identify the zero-signal room in your house using your wireless device, and then install the extender to eliminate the issue.
Do it in easy steps
Once you get your hands on a brand new Linksys RE3000W extender, you can easily configure it with your Wi-Fi network. Just follow the guide given below to install the extender successfully:
- Place your device midway between the Wi-Fi router and the weak signal zone. Switch it on and wait for the indicator lights to turn on. If you are using an old extender, you can simply press the “reset” button on the device and configure it again.
- Ensure that your router is placed at a set frequency of 2.4GHz to work properly with the extender. Keep in mind the service set identifier (SSID) of your network and its password.
- Now take your wireless device and connect it to the extender network. On the web browser, simply put the address “192.168.1.1” to access the extender installation interface. Click “Start Setup”. Check “I Agree” on the user license conditions and hit “Next”. Wait for the installation to finish.
- Now use the SSID and password to connect your extender to the Wi-Fi. Use the “Spot Finder” feature of the extender to get the maximum signal strength for transmission. Set up the administrator password by connecting to the extender network. Click “Save” and you are good to go.
Once you install the extender, make sure to regularly check the signal strength in the dead zone. You can also install it by configuring it with an Ethernet cable and a laptop. Also, keep your warranty card and user manual handy. For any issue that you cannot solve with the manual, you must call on a registered repairman. Contact the extender provider for any issue related to the device. Never tamper with the internal wiring of the extender.
