after plugging into my router the wifi works, but I can’t access the admin page off a brower. I’ve tried 2 browers and both say either connection takes too long or unable to connect?
Try the correct address 192.168.8.1 … And most GL-Inet routers can’t handle https. So if your browser per default requests https, just try http://192.168.8.1 …
If HTTPS is necessary in case of a small local area network is another discussion.
Can you access via SSH?
Please try using your browser in Incognito/InPrivate mode without the plug-in.
