The South African has done well since joining Paul Brush's side and following discussions with Ipswich boss Joe Royle, Miller has been allowed to continue his spell at Brisbane Road.
Brush told the Orient official website: "Justin will be staying for another five weeks which we're very pleased with, especially because he can play in the FA Cup too.
"I spoke to Joe Royle today and he's happy to for the lad to stay and Justin's happy too, so that's a big positive for us."
Brush refused to speculate if they will try and keep Miller for the rest of the season, once his new loan deal expires.
He added: "There's no point looking five weeks down the line, because anything could happen.
"He's been back there a few times to train and we're happy for him to do that - naturally he doesn't want to get forgotten about.
"But we want him around the place and he wants to be here so that's a real bonus at the moment."
Meanwhile, two of The O's loan signings have returned to their respective clubs in midfielder Jamal Campbell-Ryce and goalkeeper Rhys Evans.
Campbell-Ryce has gone back to Premiership side Charlton Athletic after three months with Orient, having recently picked up a hamstring injury.
The 19-year-old's contract at The Valley expires at the end of the season and Brush admitted that he will monitor the winger's progress with a view to bringing back in the future.
Brush added: "Jamal will be out for two weeks with this hamstring strain and Charlton want him to go back, there's nothing we can do about that.
"His three months are up but we'll be having further talks with Charlton to see if the situation does change during the season.
"If Jamal becomes available then we'd be interested in taking over his contract."
Evans has returned to Premiership side Chelsea after picking up a knee injury and will receive treatment from the Stamford Bridge medical staff.
