I am unable to set up the printer for some reason. when i go to set the printer wifi network it shows 3x twinkletwinkle networks available but not matter which i connect to i cannot connect. on my computer/cell/laptop i only show one network name and everything is seemless. i have full bars thruout the house

   Should that name (?) mean anything to anyone other than you?

      The printer can only connect to a network that supports
      2.4 GHz connections. If your router offers both 2.4 GHz and
      5 GHz connections, make sure 2.4 GHz is enabled.

 

   Are you using the appropriate SSID and passphrase?

 

> 2x Nighthawk Mesh X6S

 

   Actual model number?  If those are wireless-network extenders, then
that might help to account for the printer seeing multiple SSIDs (if
that's what you meant).

NO thats just my network name

 

both are availeable but because the 2 extenders create a matrix there are 3 of the same ssid 

 

also i am not sure if me using my computer on one of the extenders (wifi) and the printer being on the main routers(wifi) is also causing issues because techniquely they are different even though they are matrixed together as one global ssid/network 

 

the extenders are the 

Netgear Nighthawk X6S EX8000 they are triband

The usual way to fix wifi printers is to find the printer maker's utility, the software that runs on your operating system. Then use that to connect the printer to the wifi.

 

The router just broadcasts wifi. It is then down to the printer to play ball. There isn't much that you can do on a router, beyond fixing it to a particular IP address, that affects what the printer gets up to.

 

Where possible, using the WPS feature can simplify things.
