All lights GREEN but no _EXT network appears

Mac OSX 10.13.4

iOS 11.3 - 6th gen iPad, iPhone 6

 

WPS set-up went smoothly and lights are all GREEN on the extender, except the DEVICE light which is nothing, neither green nor red. And no _EXT network has shown up. So I can't connect my devices to the extender.

 

mywifiext.net says no connection. mywifext.local does not exist.

Have you tried to factory reset the unit by holding the reset button for 10+ seconds then try to set up the extender again? Then try to give it a different SSID when in the setup process.

Try to connect to the extender again VIA www.mywifiext.net login and try changing the SSID see if that shows up to your devices.

Did that (see bove). mywifiext.net gives me:

 

"You are not connected to your extender's WiFi network."

 

Which is the whole problem.
