Orbi not connecting after reloading the app

My RBR50v2 is not connecting after reloading my app. When going into my Orbi App the wording was in Chinese so I removed and redownloaded the app. The app then did not recognize the Orbi. I then tried to set up as a new system. I continue to receive an error message "unable to join the network "ORBI03"

Did you change the SSID name on the RBR?

Re: Orbi not connecting after reloading the app

What model Orbi do you have?

What Firmware version is currently loaded?

 

What devices do you have that your installing the app on?

Re: Orbi not connecting after reloading the app

I did a reset of the Orbi router and reset everything as a née system and everything is working fine now. By reset I mean pushed the little button on back of router and started over. I used the same device name and password so I didn’t have to fix every WiFi device in the house

Glad you got it working. 

 

You can always use same SSID name and PW after a reset and setup from scratch. 

Be sure to save off a back up configuration to file for safe keeping. Saves time if a reset is needed.
