Linksys access points, such as wireless routers, can be configured to act as an access point, access point client, wireless bridge or wireless repeater. Using your router as a wireless repeater is beneficial in that it extends the range of your wireless signal. In order for your router to act as a wireless repeater, you must check its wireless MAC address and turn wireless repeater mode on in your device's settings.
Access your router's set-up page. Type "192.168.1.1" into your browser and press "Enter." Enter your username and password and press "Enter." If you are not able to access your router's set-up page this way, consult the instruction manual for alternative instructions.
Click "Status" and "Wireless" on the router set-up page.
Record the number that is listed next to "MAC Address."
Access your router's set-up page.
Click "AP Mode" and select "Wireless Repeater" on the router set-up page.
Type the MAC address you recorded into the "LAN MAC Address" field. Do not type the colons (:) when entering the MAC address.
Click on the "Save Settings" button.
