Running tether app on Android 9, cannot find the range extender at 192.168.1.13

 

I am standing right next to it.

Any ideas?

Hi Bob, below is the compatibility list of the Tether app.

https://www.tp-link.com/tether_compatibility_list/

 

Please verify whether the TL-WA850RE supports it. 

Note: Please check the hardware version first.

 

Then to detect the range extender, please ensure that you have connected your smart phone to the extender's wifi.

 

May it help and have a good day.

@gratefulfrog the V1 model of the extender (which has a green web UI) is not compatible with Tether.
