Too long SSID? Authorisation problem

I can not connect to my WN2500RP, I get authorisation problems. My devices (phone, computer) will not display complete SSID, 23 signs, could this be the problem?

Re: Too long SSID? Authorisation problem

Have you tried a shorter SSID, is there any particular reason why it is currently so long?

Re: Too long SSID? Authorisation problem

Thank you for replying, Babylon5. Yes, I got help from my ISP. I still have the authorisation problem. I assume it's because I managed get into the _2GEXT line and I was messing with the password. There was a countdown display, that I managed to enter twice. Now how do I change the password without getting into the line? I have made the factory reset many times, shut the router and the extender down in different order. When I try to enter via mywifiext.net I get an Oops! screen, telling me I got there by mistake.

In order to access mywifiext.net make sure your computer is connected to extender's network.
