Hi, Jamie22.

Sorry for the issues you're having getting your points set up. That sounds like a frustrating experience. Let's look at this and see how we can get things working fully for you.

I do have a few questions that will help us narrow down a fix.

  • When the setup fails, are you getting an error message? If so, what does it say?
  • If you set the points up in a different order (the one failing before the one that was successful), does it fail on the first point or still the second?
  • Is the placement of each point the same as it was before the factory reset?
  • With just the router and first point, are you getting a strong connection result when you perform a mesh test?

If you can give me a little more detail, we can definitely get this working right. I look forward to hearing back from you. Thanks.
