Model: RE300
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

I have a RE300 range extender. Configured 2.4 OK. Can not get 5 to configure. I have a Verizon router. Only way I could get 2.4 to work is using the WPS method. But, it still would not configure 5g. Manual with re300 said to press WPS a second time to configure 5g. I did not work. Tether app does not work. Updated firmware and tried set up again. Still no help. Only 2.4 LED is on and tether app shows 5g is off. Please help.

Hi, sorry for the delay.

May I know the exact model of Verizon router?

Could you please try to update the firmware to the following one to have a look:

I found the problem and now is working. Hope this helps others. Found the 5g on my router set to manual channels. Changed to 40. After saving my settings to verizon router 5g light came on Re300 and is now working very well.
