    Hi everyone,
    My range extender was working perfectly today. I went home and charge it as usual. Tonight when I get back and prepare for a flight, I couldn't find the ssid. No matter what I try, I cannot seem to find it. I notice that the wifi signal next to the power is not blinking at all. Anybody knows what's up? Please help!!!

    Well the thing is that I could not connect to it.. I even try to press the reset button but no luck. Only the power led iss old green. There is no activity on the other one.

    Did you do the full rebinding thing where you use the QR code. :?:
    If so did it find the SSID at all?
    If that didn't work you might need to replace the extender.
    Always worth trying - delete and re-install your phone app.

    Repost;

    You have to rebind.

    1) YOU WILL NEED BOX PHANTOM CAME IN!
    2) turn on ( extender, Tx, then phantom )
    3) turn on smart device, when you see the extender come up in your
    Wi-fi list ( power and system lights on solid on extender ) press and hold RESET button on extender
    Until SYSTEM light goes OUT!
    4) wait until you pick up phantom wifi again, and hook to it.
    5) open DJI APP
    6) under SETTINGS, find BINDING ( click it )
    7) scroll down till you see ( SCAN QR CODE ) click it
    8) scan code on box side
    9) now you should have a new MAC ADDRESS.
    10) click BLUE CHECK top right screen
    11) turn EVERYTHING OFF
    12) turn on ( extender, Tx, then phantom )
    13) connect smart device to phantom wifi
    14) open app
    15) click CAMERA
    You should be like new!

    Hope this helps!

    Take care, Fly safe!
