pairing range extender


  • having purchased 2 Alien routers, I found I still have a dead spot. I have a Linksys RE7000 range extender, and wish to add this to my network to resolve this. after reading Alien documentation, I do not find any documentation about adding another brand extender. only reference I find is to other routers. Before when I had used the extender it created SSID with SSID-ext extension. my question is: will the Alien attach to those Linksys created networks. This problem occurs from the recent addition of 8 Nest external cameras which will only function on 2.4 GHz. Bad trick NEST/Google !


  • @Phil-Parkhurst The alien doesn't connect to the extender.. The extender can attach to the Alien if it supports 802.11ax, 802.11ac, or the other protocols supported by the Alien. You may want to check with the manufacturer of the extender.
