Before that let’s discuss little bit about access point mode.
What are Access points?
They are devices characterised to create a wireless local area network. That means in this case you will connect Linksys RE6300 range extender with your network router or switch with Ethernet cable.
That thing distinguish it from range extender mode, in which you just establish wireless link with your network router/switch and it starts sending WiFi signal coming from your router throughout the network.
As in case of Access points, connection between network router/switch is wired, thus there will be minimal losses.

Then establish connection between your Linksys RE6300 range extender and network router with the help of Ethernet cable. Then wait until light turns to be green.
Now connect your wireless device like computer, with Linksys range extender network, which by default will be named as Linksys Extender Setup – xxx.
