Customer Question
I installed a Linksys...

I installed a Linksys AC1200 WiFi Range Extender

Technician's Assistant: What device(s) are you connecting to your AC1200 network?

Three weeks ago I installed a Linksys AC1200 WiFi Range Extender and got it working. The computer I used for the initial setup died recently and I had to reinstall Windows 10. In addition the power went out 5 days ago for 3 hours. Now the Extender shows a solid green light indicating it is working, but when I try to connect to the AP1_Ext signal with the tablets that worked before, it doesn't accept the password ***** assigned. How can I change or reset the password? And if necessary, how can I reinstall it the way I did the first time, where the "Linksys Extender Setup" option appears allowing you to enter the administrative pass code and password? Tim
