DST Adapter cannot connect to router with SSID broadcast turned off

I am trying to add a DST adapter to the Nighthawk AC1900 Router (Model R7300) but it keeps saying no DST adapters found. I have turned 'broadcast SSID' off on the router which I think could be the reason. Is there a way to manually connect the DST adapter to the Router with 'broadcast SSID' turned off?

Model: DST6501|DST (Dead Spot Terminator) Adapter

Hello twenty1670

 

Have you tried to connect it using WPS buttons?

DarrenM, yes, tried that and didn't work. I think WPS requires SsID broadcast to be on to work

Hello twenty1670 

 

Are you not able to enable the SSID connect the extender then disable it again?
