Hi everyone,

I bought Mi WiFi repeater 2 recently, I'm not able to connect it as instructed. Like with Mi home App, tried resetting, kept region China etc. Always during setup process after 89% it shows connection time out. Please anyone help me.  I'm using Redmi Note 4, Mi home App to setup the device, but again nd again connection time out at 89%.

Before you start, check the security settings on your WiFi router. This extender will only work on networks that use only WPA2 security. If your WiFi router is currently set to use WPA/WPA2 security, you will need to change this. Also note that this extender will only work on 2.4GHz networks

it still does not work at my device . At 89% the connection between my repeater and the app interrupts. Also the led is the whole time Yellow/orange, it never changes to blue.

Reset again! And now try with Mi WiFi app! There you find an option to add an repeater! Try that and see if it works. While resetting hold the reset button for few seconds then release. Check router blocklist, settings anything which would interupt the process turn it off!

Thank you for your replie. Yesterday it worked to connected the repeater with my wifi but today I needed to change the position of it so it loses the connection to my wifi. Then I tried to Connect it a seconde time but I have the same probleme like before. Everytime it doesnt connect i reset the repeater the same way you discribed but at 89% the ``connection timeout``.

Reset your extender, push reset button let the led blink and then stug orange and blink again until 3 times (do not release reset pin) and than you can set your extender from begining. i was success to reset extender while change to another SSID.

I have same problem last week, time out at 90%. Just realized after 2 days after, entered the wrong password! Just make sure you entered right password, or simply check your router password again.

FINAL SOLUTION: Reset the Xiaomi Wifi Repeater for at least 60 seconds, reset again for at least 40 seconds and reset for the last 20 seconds.

Uninstall the MIHOME application from your mobile phone. Turn off the router and open it in 30 seconds. Install the MIHOME Program on another phone. And create a new account. Set up Wifi Repeater.

NOTE: 1- The Mihome application must be run with a new account on another phone. 2- The old account session must be closed.
