Wifi extender


Wifi extender

I bought this to boost my wifi so I can stream to my smart tv.

I went thru the setup on my EX3700 and it on . 

When I try to connect to my phone or my tv, I see both the 2g and the 5g wifi, it asked for a password to connect. I did not set up any password for this unit. I tyied my router password and it does not work.

How should I procede?

Model: EX3700|N600 WiFi Range Extender

Re: Wifi extender

If you used WPS to set it up, the extender should be using the same passphrase(s) as your router wifi.


If it's not doing that, perhaps try resetting the extender and set it up again.  Don't press WPS this time, instead connect to the unsecured extender network and go through the setup using www.mywifiext.net.
