I recently purchased a wifi extender and I now have to set it up.
There are three options for how to set it up:
- Through the app
- By pressing the WPS button on the router and then pressing the WPS button on the extender
- By connecting to the wifi network of the extender (which does not have a password) and then navigating to a webpage that doesn’t have HTTPS and enter the password for the extender.
The fact that there is no preset password is worrying. Considering that 3 is even possible I worry about what security compromises they made in implementing 1.
Is 2. the best bet here? WPS seems to have some vulnerabilities though after googling.
