Netgear Nighthawk R7000

I purchased the Netgear Nighthawk wifi router last week.  I managed to interface my Dell laptop to the wifi with no dificulty, so I know all is working correctly.  My problem is with my I-phones! I have a 5S, 7 and an 8 and none of them will recognize the wifi password!  I have tried all suggestions with the same results.  Yes, I tried deleting all of my network settings, unplugging the equipment, rebooting the phones, nothing.  Help out there?

I’ve had the same problem. Can’t say I ever found the root cause. And can say it magically worked after trying so many times.

Try changing the router wifi password to something simple.  iPhones like to captialize words, autocorrect, etc.

I vote for auto-correct.  Happened to me in the past with iPhones and Android devices.  For some reason, it seems I have fingers too big for them to predict what keys I'm trying to press! XD.

I always wanted to start using WPS instead but never really got the hang of it.
