Linksys Atlas Max 6E Setup [How to Complete]

Before You Begin

Like all the other Linksys mesh systems, the units present in this WiFi system are called nodes. And similar to that, these nodes can be set up as primary and secondary nodes. The primary node is also known by the name parent node. On the other hand, secondary nodes are also called child nodes. To be more precise, the parent node is the unit that shares a hardwired connection with your modem or modem router. After setting it up wirelessly, you will be able to connect secondary nodes to the primary one with the aid of a wireless as well as the wired connection.

  • Unlock your mobile phone and navigate to the App Store/Play Store.
  • Search for the Linksys app and get it installed on the mobile device.
  • Now, you are required to grab an RJ45 LAN cable and connect it to your modem or modem router’s LAN port.
  • Just in case the LAN port of your host device i.e. the modem or modem router has been disabled by your ISP, contact him to get it enabled.
  • The next step is to connect another end of the Ethernet cable (RJ45 LAN) to the Internet port on the unit i.e. the node that you want to use as the primary one.
  • Switch on your modem or modem router if you haven’t done yet.
  • As soon as the Power light of the host device becomes stable, you should power up the parent node (primary node).
  • Wait for a few moments.
  • Return to your mobile phone and connect it to the default network broadcasted by the node.
  • To know about the default network name and WiFi password, refer to the label of the node. You will find them under the Setup WiFi section.

  • Launch the Linksys app now.
  • You will be greeted by a Log in screen.
  • Since you’re setting up your Linksys Atlas Max 6E system, you need to tap the “Launch Setup” link.
  • The account creation window will show up.
  • Input the correct email address and password.
  • You will get a verification email from Linksys.
  • To proceed, click the link in the email and return to the app.
  • The app will now welcome you with a few prompts.
  • These prompts will require you to change the WiFi name and network key, set up guest access, use the WPS connection, and set up parental controls.
  • The setup will get completed in a few minutes.
  • Now, you can add other nodes to the home network and name them based on the location where you have placed them.

Note: During the installation of your Linksys Atlas Max 6E, you will also get a chance to set up an admin password for the mesh system management. This password will let you directly access the settings of the system without much difficulty. However, this password is different than the Linksys account password.

In this manner, an Atlas 6E mesh system can be made up and running through the Linksys app. This is to inform you that if you have employed multiple Linksys devices in your house, you can use the Linksys account details to manage them. You also do not need to create one in case you already have an account before installing the mesh system. No matter whether you want to do Linksys extender login or are attempting to log in to your mesh system, just navigate to the Use Email tab and manage the device you wish to.

The EndNote

Installing a Linksys Atlas 6E mesh system is quite easier than you think. The only requirement is the Linksys mobile application and a working internet connection. However, during all this configuration process, ensure that you have kept your nodes in a ventilated area. Apart from this, your secondary nodes are supposed to be placed in the range of primary ones for the setup process.
