Router won't display in network list


Router won't display in network list

I recently purchased a R8500 Nighthawk tri-band router.  I started to installi it this evening and everything was progressing as expected. When prompted, I downloaded and installed the most recent firmware.  Now the router will not show up in the network list.  I've tried using the network name, searching for a hidden network, and looking for it in a URL search by IP.  Nothing will make the router visible. 


I do have all lights displaying on the router including the WIFI led indicator.  Still nothing.I've rebooted both the computer and router.


I'm just techie enough to be dangerous, but not enough to solve this issue.  Please help.



Model: R8500|Nighthawk X8 Tri-Band AC5300 WiFi Router

Re: Router won't display in network list

can you go online if you connect your PC wired to the router? if yes access the router UI and check the network SSID and pw. Disable the wireless adapter then reenable it then look for the network SSID to connect.
