Xiaomi (MI) WiFi Repeater/Amplifier Setup w/ Other Routers

Video guide to setup/configure Xiaomi’s WiFi Repeater/Amplifier to extend the network of a WiFi router not made by Xiaomi. I’m using it to connect to my Asus router.

Download Mi Home app (Play Store version and has a different interface now) – http://tchms.to/MiHome
I purchased the repeater from AliExpress – http://tchms.to/1ZU1CwB

Restrictions: You cannot set a custom password for the network created by the repeater (and you can actually make changes to none of the settings). The app sets the same password as used on your router.

The device is branded as WiFi+. If you instead want to set it up with a Xiaomi Mi Router, you just need to plug the stick into the USB port at the back of the Mi Router and wait for the LED to turn blue.

nice vedio Q: can i use one more 2nd extender connect to the 1st extender??? router + 1st extender + 2nd extender + any device???

A A says:

I have change it to Security Options (WPA-PSK) OR WPA-PSK [TKIP]

andrea lenzi says:

for those who are having the “time out connection” problem: enter your router (from browser digit or something similar) and set “wpa2” for the password and set 20mhz (not the 20/40 option).

turn on bluetooth and wifi on the phone and connnect to your router establishing a working connection to the internet.

then open “mi app” (provided that you have downloaded it from the play store; if i am not wrong it will ask you to register a “mi account”) ,
add manually the device choosing it form the list (it is the second on the right between the 2 repeater you will find in the list)

follow on screen instructions

blu light will show up

Jason Wilson says:

I bought one. It wouldn’t setup and would fail at 100% everytime. Sky Q hub router. Set to WPA2 and 2.4Ghz only. Still wouldn’t connect. Used my old Sky router (SR101) and it connected first time and has been working flawless. So, if it doesn’t setup, check WPA setting and turn off 5Ghz. Failing that, swap the router.
