router password not working with extender AC1200 dual band wifi range extender model EX6110

I have used the WPS and all lights are green.  When I go to connect the extender, the router password (and I'm positive it's the correct password) will not work for the extender.

When I go to find the extender's IP address, nothing shows, with the exception of "connect".  When I try to connect using the router's password, it tells me wrong password.  

 

I do not know what to do next.

Try factory resetting the extender (push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds while powered on). 

Then install it using the installation assistant and NOT wps. I've seen wps get coded poorly with some routers and not work properly. 

when it doesn't work properly, usually the installation assistant will. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80

Remember,  the extender's admin password is not the same as the wifi password. The default values for both are on a label on the device.

 

While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

WiFi Range Extenders & Nighthawk Mesh - NETGEAR Communities

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.

Just another user.
