Extender issue EX6110


Extender issue EX6110

I have connected my extender to the router but when I put in my password for the network on the _2GEXT or _5GEXT extender networks it says the password is incorrect. Though it is the same password I use when I join the network without the extender.

Re: Extender issue EX6110

Can you access your Extender's web page from the router network (you might need to locate it's IP address in your router's attached devices list).


If so, you can check the passphrase that way.  Another way is to connect a PC to the ethernet jack on the extender (bypassing the need to log into the wifi network).  Then you can enter http://mywifiext.net in your browser's address bar.
