AC1200 Wifi Range Extender unable to change wifi

I'll make this as short as I can since I'm unsure on this. So for a quick story, after a huge wind storm hit my area, my wifi went out. We had to get a whole new wifi for my house and now I am trying to change the internet on my extender but am unable to. If anyone knows how, please do let me know right away. If not, then thanks anyways.

Re: AC1200 Wifi Range Extender unable to change wifi

while the extender is powered on, push and hold reset for 7-15 seconds. 

That'll get you back to the defaults where you can then follow the install guide. 

If that doesn't work, you need to explain:

  • wifi system you're connecting to
  • method of install (app based, wps based, installation assistant)
  • where its failing in the process

make sure to try each method of install if one fails.
