Wifi range extender with same SSID as router

HP Recommended
Photosmart 5520
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have signed up to BT total wifi, which extends the wifi network with discs. They use the same SSID as the router. My printer won't allow me to connect, as it detects more than one access point with the same SSID. What can I do?

Hi @WillGale,

 

I'd like to help!

 

The router is probably not configured in the bridge mode. This could be a NAT issue which means multiple routers are handing out IP addresses and causing a conflict. I recommend you contact the ISP for assistance.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.

Thanks Jay. 

I'm puzzled: even though I tried again to connect the printer to my new router, and it said it couldn't ..... the printer has started working! (I forgot it wasn't connected, and sent a print job - and it started printing. So I'm hoping it's fixed.

Obviously if it isn't I'll follow up your suggestion.

Many thanks,

Will
