EX2700 – N300 WiFi Range Extender cannoct connect to router at all.

Hello,

I bought this WiFi extender modem, recently.
I have a big problem with setting this up, I was trying all the options possible, I searched the forum through for the answer however I did not find it.
I was trying to fallow many guides however none of them helped.
I was trying to connect extender through WPS, it did not work. Also tried to do the same but using the PIN option, also failed.
Then setting up the extender manually, I got the message that the key I put there is invalid (even though the think that it is asking me for should be the same as my password) and it requires 10 hexadecimals values or 5 characters string. And last thing, I tried to set it up using ethernet cable connected to my laptop, this thing did not work out at all, because the mywifiextender, said that I am not connected...
Any suggestions what can I do about it?

Kind regards

Hello Mutantpike

 

Make sure your main router is using WPA2 security after that factory reset the Ex2700 by holding the reset button for 10 seconds then try the setup again.
