AC750 WiF Range Extender won't take password after power failure

We have power failures once and a while. I have my router and modem on a battery back up but there is no way to do that for the extender. When the power comes back on I cannot get my devices to connect to the extender again. I have never changed the password but it says it is incorrect. If I am not at home and this happens I have no way to connect to any of my devices such as my thermostat when they cannot reconnect to the extender using the original password.

Last time I just reset the device and started from scratch all over again but that can't be the easiest solution. Advice? Thank you.

Hello MarquesAlan

 

Unfortunately resetting and starting over is the easiest solution.
