Re: Wifi range extender won't accept router password

Instructions were followed to the letter with the WPS setup and the broadband provider confirmed the extender was connected to the router. I have not tried the setup without using WPS. My router uses a 'wireless key' code.

 

As a 'last resort' I will try the setup with no wps tomorrow.

 

Again, many thanks for the helpful responses.

RTFM - the booklet says enter your wifi password not look for an alternative password.  I do this and it is not recognised.  There is no password on the device itself.

I go to www.mywifi.net and htis is the only page I get.  I have N300 extender. The iOS link doesn't work,  Jsut great!

 

 

You are not connected to your extender's WiFi network.

If your router and extender use the same WiFi network name (SSID), follow these instructions:

Note: These instructions apply only to the following extenders:

      • Nighthawk X6S AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi Mesh Extender Model EX8000
      • Nighthawk X6 AC2200 Tri-Band WiFi Mesh Extender Model EX7700
      • Nighthawk X4S AC2200 Tri-Band WiFi Mesh Extender Model EX7500
      • Nighthawk X4 AC2200 Dual-Band WiFi Mesh Extender Model EX7300
      • AC1900 Nighthawk WiFi Range Extender Model EX7000
      • AC1900 Dual-Band WiFi Mesh Extender Model EX6400

To log in to your extender, enter one of the following URLs in your web browser depending on your device:

Note: To find your extender's IP address, log in to your router and look for a list of devices connected to your router. The extender's IP address displays in the list. For more information, see your router's user manual.

If your router and extender use different WiFi network names (SSIDs), make sure that your device is connected to your extender's network.

To log in to your extender, enter mywifiext.net in your web browser.

Mikr001 - you deserve a medal for your persistence.  I have given up and returned the extender to the seller.  I'llbuy something that actually works.

That question about iOS should be answered I guess - just great, isn't it?

Not sure why they state using the extender IP on Android (what certainly works on any platform and browser!) - works like a charm here:
