Hey.

 

i have a room in house that don't have wifi signal at all,

 

i can connect it to the internet via cable,

 

i thought if i'll connect the RE450 with a cable, i'll get a wifi connection aswell,

 

when i set it up it asks to connect to wifi, but no signal ofcourse,

if i put the wirless network manually it connects but says no internet connection,

 

can you guys help?

maybe i need a mesh router instead?

@SHEN-B Hello, 

 

When Router ---RE connected via Ethernet cable, RE should work in AP Mode which transfer wired connection to Wirle one. 

 

For model RE450,   V2 and above hardware version supports Access Point Mode, V1 does not. Please double check the hardware version here:

If your router supports AP Mode,  please  refer to this instruction to set up Access Point for RE:
