R8000 appends "_re". To my ssid

Ssid = egbc24ghz, r8000 broadcasts this ssid plus an ssid egbc24ghz_re. What does this mean and

why "_re" ???

Re: R8000 appends "_re". To my ssid

Welcome to the community, @WalterM

 

Do you have a range extender?

Is there another device that extends the signal of your router?

If you're not familiar with it, I suggest that you change the SSID and wireless password of your router.

 

How do I change my NETGEAR router WiFi password or network name (SSID)?

Thanks for your reply, ElaineM.  No there are no extenders involved.

Double check your SSID's configured on the router before you reset and configure new SSID's and password.
