Like all other electronic devices, these can also meet with the unexpected errors even after successful Linksys extender setup. Today, we are going to put the light on some proven and tested troubleshooting tips for issues with Linksys WiFi range extender. We assure you that all your extender-related technical issues will get resolved after reading this.
- Cannot connect to the network
In case you are getting connectivity problems with your Linksys extender, the first thing you must check is the position of it. The perfect place to put the booster is an area which is dust-free, open and airy. It should be placed near the wall socket so that you experience no issues while plugging it in. Another key point to keep in mind is putting the wireless repeater far away from microwave ovens, baby monitors, cordless phones, refrigerators, radios running on the same frequency, concrete walls, floors and windows as well as reflexive surfaces like mirrors and glasses. Once done with the placement, try to connect to Linksys extender.
- WPS button is not working
Facing issues while setting up Linksys extender using the WPS method? Well, no need to worry. If your Linksys router WPS button is not working, chances are that it is turned off. By default, it is enabled but sometimes, users disable it and forget. That’s why it spoils the complete setup process.
- Unable to access Linksys extender login page
Extender.linksys.com is known as the default login page for Linksys WiFi range extender. However, when someone tries to access the webpage, they come across a few error messages. Due to this, most of the users end up with the extender setup at this moment only.
Wait! It is not the solution. You can get rid of this issue by clearing the junk files like cache, cookies and history from your web browser. Double check the web address you are using. If you are still experiencing problems with Linksys range extender login, switch to another internet browser.
- Problems with WiFi coverage
If you are not getting an effective WiFi coverage from your range extender, you must reposition the antennas. Given that antennas have an effect on the WiFi connectivity for your home or office network, so place them carefully. Try keeping them in a straight position. If this doesn’t work for you, reset Linksys range extender to factory settings. You can do so either manually or via the web-based setup page. After resetting, all your customized settings will be wiped out and set to their default values. Therefore, you need to make setting changes once again.
- Can’t create Linksys cloud account

Once done, click on create account button. Congrats! Your issue has resolved.
