Linksys RE2000 Setup

The Linksys RE2000 setup is a wireless range extender that helps extend the range of your existing Wi-Fi network. Keep in mind that specific instructions might vary slightly based on firmware updates or changes made by the manufacturer since then. Here is a general guide on how to set up the Linksys RE2000:

  1. Connect the Linksys RE2000:

    • Plug the RE2000 into a power outlet.
    • Wait for the LED on the front of the extender to turn amber.
  2. Connect to the Linksys Extender Setup Network:

    • On your computer or mobile device, go to the Wi-Fi settings.
    • Look for a network named something like “Linksys Extender Setup” and connect to it.
  3. Open a Web Browser:

    • Open a web browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
  4. Access the Setup Page:

  5. Enter Credentials:

    • If prompted, enter the default username and password. These are often “admin” for both, but consult your user manual or the product label for accurate information.
  6. Select Your Wi-Fi Network:

    • On the setup page, you should see a list of available Wi-Fi networks. Select the network you want to extend.
  7. Enter Wi-Fi Password:

    • Enter the password for your existing Wi-Fi network when prompted.

  9. Apply Settings:

    • After configuring the settings, apply the changes.
  10. Complete Setup:

    • Once the setup is complete, you may be prompted to disconnect from the Linksys Extender Setup network and connect to the newly extended network.
  11. Placement:

    • Place the extender in a location where it can effectively capture and extend the Wi-Fi signal. Avoid placing it in areas with interference.
  12. Verify Connection:

    • Verify that your devices can connect to the extended network, and test the connection to ensure it is stable.

Always refer to the user manual that came with your Linksys RE2000 for the most accurate and up-to-date instructions. If you don’t have the manual, you can usually find it on the Linksys support website or contact Linksys customer support for assistance.
