I have purchased a WiFi adaptor for my Mitsubishi Electric air con unit. I’m unable to pair my router with it. Pushing the WPS button on both router and adaptor but connection fails. Is this a restriction on the router that needs to be disabled??
A quick review of the spec of this WiFi adapter suggests it can only connect to the 2.4GHz WiFi band.
As delivered, the Hub 3.0 comes with a single SSID (WiFi name) for the two WiFi bands, 2.4GHz and 5GHz. This causes some devices to get ‘confused’ and not connect reliably.
This can sometimes be resolved by ‘separating’ this single SSID into two, one each for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.
This is done by logging into your Hub 3.0 using the Settings password from the base of the Hub 3.0 which is access by putting the address 192.168.0.1 into a browser search bar.
Once logged in, navigate to Advanced Settings, then Wireless, then Security and you reach a display like the following:
Simply add -5 to the end of the 5GHz SSID as I have done. You can leave the password the same on both SSIDs for convenience. Once you apply this change, the Hub 3.0 will then have two SSIDs.
To connect your device by WPS, first press the WPS button on the Hub 3.0 until you see green flashing LED above the large white LED then press the WPS button in your device. This should connect the device.
