Ask Computer Networking Questions and Get Answers ASAP
Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Would you like instructions on how to get the extender setup again?
OK... do you have the old 'wireless password' or wireless passphrase that was used to be entered on computers and devices that wanted to connect?
If you do - then that would help you set up the replacement Linksys router so that it matches the existing setup for the range extender. That way, half the work for both of us, just the Linksys to configure, not both boxes to configure.
(Now, please don't state the password ***** the passphrase here. This is not a private forum. It's just needed that you know it, if possible.)
But if you don't have it, then it can be gotten off any Windows computer (and perhaps other devices) that were connected to the old now-fried router and still have the configuration on them... so let me know if that's the case.
