Had this problem for a while, but would love to solve it. Can see on other forums that many others have the same problem…
I have several saved wifi networks for use with repeater mode. It would be nice if when the router rebooted it would automatically attempt to connect to a known wifi in range, but it does not. Perhaps because I’m running load balancing with with device plugged into the WAN?
My real issue is that when the repeater is not connected, I go to the “saved networks” click on the correct one and “join”, but it rarely works. Most of the time it just says “timeout”. Sometimes on the second or third try it will connect. This happens with all of the saved networks, so I would like to think it is not network related.
Is there a way to make sure the saved networks will actually easily join and not waste several minutes trying again and again? It will work if I rescan, find the network and manually enter the password…connects every time and easily. Doesn’t make sense why the known wifi settings and approach does not work.
