Re: ex7500 local login page not working


ex7500 local login page not working

My ability to log into my extender just went south.  When I log into mywifext, I get the "New Extender Setup" page.  When I click New Extender Setup Button, I get a page asking me to select two set policy on Autofirmware Update and Analytics Collection.  After clicking any of the four possible options of those two settings and then clicking on Apply, the browser takes me back to the "New Extender Setup" page again.  I can never get to being actually logged into the extender to check status, etc. 


I was able to reset the device, log into Netgear_ext sysid, and reconfigure the whole thing.  But even after that, I can no longer log into the device; I get into the infinite loop above.  I've tried turning off ad blocker, switching browsers, etc.   Anybody seen this?  Thoughts?  dave

maybe something got corrupted in the firmware. 

Have you tried actually reinstalling the firmware to it, then factory reset, and then do a clean install (don't use a backup configuration).
