EX3700 password not accepted

Hi,
Firstly;
I've managed to set it up through Google Chrome (or at least get the mywifiext wizard to work) but when I try to log into the 2GEXT or 5GEXT Wifi links on the Wifi list, my wifi password doesn't work. It'll work if I try to log back onto my original Wifi link. 

Secondly:
Can you set up more than one extender in the house?

Cheers!
Chris

What router are you connecting it to? 

What firmware is on the extender? 

You used the installation assistant and not wps? 

 

You can use more than 1 extender but I'd recommend setting them up in a star configuration and not daisy chained. 

star:  extender<------router------>extender

daisy chain: router------>extender------->extender

 

reason why is standard single/dual band extenders take a 50% speed hit just based on how they have to work. they have to send/receive to router and then to device and they can't do both at once. so they take a 50% speed hit from whatever signal they're getting. If you have a 2nd extender in line, its running at 25% speed. Its why I usually recommend people move to a mesh system like orbi if they're needing to daisy chain.

Hi,

the router is a Technicolor TG588. I followed the instructions for WPS and then with ethernet cable and then via Chrome, so the laptop registers there are the two extensions but won't accept password..
