iPhone app not pairing, with tp link wifi repeater


(robert dunne) #1

Having trouble at home with iPhone app pairing with laptop. It works in the office. At home I am using wi-fi repeaters as the house has big thick walls. Any ideas?

Thanks

I was having issues getting my iPhone to connect also and I did the following:

I have a Linksys Router that is capable of both 5GHz and 2.4GHz so I split the 2 into different access points

I changed the channel for the 2.4GHz to channel 1 (by default it just grabs any channel)

I make sure both my phone and PC are connected to the 2.4GHz access point.

Since I did this my iPhone connects to my PC without issue

Cheers Paul,

 

Turns out I had to disable MAC filtering on my TP link wifi repeater thing.

 

All good now

 

Ride on

Was having same problem on Ipad. My fix was in game to turn on airplane mode, turn off airplane mode and they paired. Only worked in game though.
