Hello

I have a problem with configuration on the Tether app.

The extender is working, but when i try to configure the tether app i get the message that the IP adress of my phone is not in the same subnetmask  as the ip adress of the extender.

Please can anyone help to resolve this ?

Answers in English appreciated, in Dutch also.

Thank you

Greetings , Rien (Netherlands)

@Rien 

 

Hi Rien, the simplest way is to connect your smart phone to the extender's wifi; 

 

And please disable the cellular data on your cellphone. 

 

May it help and have a nice day.

@Rien 

 

Please ensure that the smart phone is in the same subnet as the extender. 

 

You can connect it to the extender's wifi and then verify whether it can find the TL-WA855RE via the Tether app.

 

Still the same, you can power cycle these two devices. 

 

Good day.

@Kevin_Z Thank you Kevin, but how can i get the telephone in the same subnet with the extender?

The Tether app is showing the range extender TL-WA855RE, but when i try to log in on it i get the message that the login failed because the phone is not in the same subnet as the extender.

So what can i exactly do to get the phone and the extender in te same subnet?

Thats where it's all about.

Thank you

Kind reagrds

Rien.
