Is there an error message you're receiving while setting up the range extender? I the RE7000 firmware up to date and the operational mode set to access point? Yesterday my provider changed my modem for a newer model Arris TG3652 and configure it with the same names and passwords for my networks. All I have is the new modem/router Arris TG3452 which provides a 2.4 GHZ and a 5 GHZ wifi. When I research the issues, it appears this printer is NOT visible to the router. I did reset the extender a couple times. Connect your Wi-Fi devices to the extended network you just created. Linksys says this extender will work with all WiFi routers so you don't need to adjust any settings to get this working alongside your current setup. You are going to be able to extend both bands 2.4 Ghz & 5Ghz. Have had an RE7000 for a year or so. When I look at a device listing on the re7000 I can see the printer (hp8620) but it cannot be added to my printers available on my MacOS. The RE700 would not connect … I have several old wireless routers configured as access points. Unable to configure RE7000 as an access point. I just got an RE7000 to test replacing them (and hopefully getting a stronger signal as well as 5ghz band). My network appears listed (so it detects it) asks me for the pwd to connect.

Wifi have diffeernt passwords and the 5 does not broadcast SSID. I just got an RE7000 to test replacing them (and hopefully getting a stronger signal as well as 5ghz band). If I configure for extender I can only configure 2.4 using WPS. I have a similar installation for a canon printer and it connects properly (recognized by wrt3200acm) and I can use bonjour and AirPrint. This extender can also be setup as an access point allowing you to connect a router using a wired connection to boost the most broad bandwidth input possible. I have a wrt3200acm installed with a wire re7000 connected as an access point. Since the RE would extend your Greenwave wireless network you might want to probably change the security type to WPA2 Personal and add an 8-12 password characters just to isolate security issues with the RE and the Greenwave before setting up the RE7000 with your wireless network.

Router is a Greenwave FIOS-GT-1100-FT which serves as a cable modem connected to a Verizon -- now Frontier -- FIOS network (if it weren't for that, it would probably be Linksys -- but that's another story). I have managed to circumvent the problem by assigning a fixed IP address to the printer and after a few restarts, it appears the connection remains and I have access to both Bonjour and Airprint. Wrt3200ac and re7000 installed as access point. Have had an RE7000 for a year or so. Kindly check if there's a step that you've missed. SO, my question is, if I have a device attached to the re7000 why isn't it visible to the wrt3200acm. Shoot us an email at [email protected]

I also have an hp8620 printer installed that seems to be connected to the re7000 but is not recognized by the wrt3200acm. If (as manual suggests) I try to configure the 5.ghz using WPS, I get the same kind of thing -- hangs for ever with a blinking amber. One other thing which may be relevant.

I've configured Re7000 as an extender but when I try to configure as an AC (either thru the change option on setup screen or in initial setup after a reset), the light remains a blinking amber "forever" and the device is not recognized. When I turn the RE7000 off, the printer connects to the main router AND i have access to bonjour and airprint features. I want to maximize the advantages of this setup (maxstream, etc.). @juancl, let us have our Second Level Support Team to check on your case further. Linksys RE7000 review: Performance. I provide the password and then it tries to connect, and keeps doing so for a while until it tells me it could bot connect to it. http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=135206. When I do a network scan through smartmwifi, the printer does not show up. I have several old wireless routers configured as access points. I may have found the solution to my problem (though it doesn't answer my basic question). Any thoughts on how to make this thing work? Update us after.

The issue I am having is my HP 8620 is connected to the extendeer (R7000) and is NOT visible to the rounter (wrt3200acm). By the way, may we know your network topology?
