    Default Nexus 7 (2012) won't connect to range extender

    Hey guys, I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I got an Asus RP-N53 WiFi range extender for Christmas but my N7 just won't play nicely with it. All the other devices in the house connect to it just fine. An all in one desktop, hybrid laptop (both Windows 8.1) and even the old BB PlayBook gets it done! I messed around with the settings interface quite a bit and can't figure this out. Thanks in advance.

    In my experience, range extenders can be fairly temperamental. Have you tried rebooting the range extender (i.e., unplugging its power and then plugging it back in again)?

    I did and no luck. I remember that when I first got the N7 I also had WiFi issues with it initially. Changing the security settings on the router from WPA to WPA2 fixed it. Problem is, trying that same trick on the extender's settings hasn't work! I'm about to email Asus and see what they have to say about it.

    Also make sure it's WPA2-AES, rather than WPA2-TKIP.
