Since a recent update to the tether app (don't know when exactly), the tether app is refusing the router admin password. I know the admin password is correct, as I am able to access the admin interface for the router via a web browser (any of them) installed on any PC or mobile device and putting the router IP address in the address bar. I have tried deleting all data in the app, and removing/reinstalling the app and the same thing happens. I get the same thing on both Android and iOS. I have tried setting the admin password to '1' to ensure there is no possibility of mistyping the password on the app, and unsurprisingly (the password I entererd was infact correct) the tether app still reported incorrect password. I am at a loss, on what to do with this app, it's broken completely, and I find it more 'friendly' to use than the browser interface.As I see it, the only choice is to abandon the app until such time as TP-Link fix the app, but as my attempts to contact support and explain the situation resulted in my being told the only choice (as I was unable to access the admin pages on the router, which is incorrect) was to hard reset the router, I have no expectation that any action will be taken.
Has anyone else encountered this and know what to do to resolve it?
(I'm hoping someone at TP-Link will read this and pass it along to the app devs)
(I have reset the admin password to something properly secure :))
