Linksys RE1000 Troubleshooting

1. My Linksys RE1000 is not Detecting My WiFi During Setup

The Linksys RE1000 MU-MIMO Range Extender, by default, scans for a 5 GHz WiFi to use it as a dedicated backhaul (uplink) connection to a dual-band router. If your RE1000 is unable to see the 5 GHz network, here are things you can check (in the following order):

  • Does your existing wireless router support dual-band networks? If your existing WiFi only supports a 2.4 GHz connection, then select the ‘Choose 2.4 GHz WiFi band’ option. Your extender will then scan for the 2.4 GHz connection.
  • The RE1000 does not support Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) channels. If your router supports DFS channels, it is possible that your router is using a DFS channel; therefore, the extender will not detect the 5 GHz band.
  • If the extender is too far away, try to move the extender closer for setup. After the Linksys RE1000 setup, you can move it to another location.

2. Poor Signal or Slow Speed on My Linksys RE1000 MU-MIMO Range Extender
