Unable to optain IP address.


Unable to optain IP address.

I have set up my Nighthawk WiFi Range Extender with WPS to reach out with WiFi to my car to download new software.

But I get a message: "Unable to optain IP address. Check the DHPC server settings"

Does anyone have a suggestion how to solve the problem?


Best regards

Re: Unable to optain IP address.

What router did you connect it to? 

If you log into the extender, whats it showing on its status page for connection back to the router? 

Have you tried factory resetting and connecting it using the installation assistant and not using WPS?

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
1.4gig download/50mbps upload from Xfinity
