nighthawk incorrect password

my ipad and iPhone are stating incorrect password to my new NetGear Nighthawk.  I had to move my Xfinity Gateway and reconnect at a different AP.  I had previously chosen in the NetGear app the smart connect and as I read it says thats the problem.  But because I cannot reconnect to the app because I cannot connect to the wifi, I cannot uncheck the box to disable smart connect.  Can anyone please help me?

 

Thanks

Re: nighthawk incorrect password

What is your actual setup? 

modem: 

R8000, firmware on it? 

What makes you think its smart connect? I've got several ipad/iphones that connect to my network fine using smart connect. 

You do have the option of hardwiring into the router via an ethernet port and changing settings. Then you don't have to worry about the incorrect wifi password. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> RBK750-> GS716v2-> RAXE500-> Pi-hole->
