The Linksys Extender software needs to be updated since it can impact the extender's functionality if it is outdated. To install the software file, navigate to the Linksys web administration page. Once there, provide your login details. After selecting the advanced network settings option, choose the software upgrade option. Install the software package on your PC immediately. This will take five to ten minutes to finish. Update the firmware and restart your extender to complete the software upgrading process.  Resetting all of the Linksys Extender Configuration Settings is necessary if the issues continue. To reset all setup settings, press the reset button on your Linksys extender. Make sure you only press the reset button for 10 seconds after inserting the hairpin. After clicking the reset button to restore the previous settings, proceed with the Linksys WiFi extender setup once more.
