I cant connect to wifi.  I stated having this problem after updating to 3.12.  It would take about five minutes to connect and now it wont connect at all. Has any one else had this problem?

When you check for wifi signals on your phone or table do you see the Phantom SID as an available wireless connection?

This started after I updated to 3.12.  I did a flight right after updating and everything was great the next two times it took about five minutes to connect to wifi and as of now it wont connect at all. The phantom flys fine but I cant use the camera.

Sunny,

You might have to back up and try a few minor things. Make sure everything is off. Go into your FPV device and look at your networks. "Forget" all networks (I'm not sure what device you're using so You'll have to figure out how to do that with your device). You want to get rid of all networks. Turn off and 'auto-connect" or "ask to join network" features. Turn on "airplane mode" then turn on wifi on the device (turning on airplane mode will shut it off). Turn on you Phantom stuff in this order, turn on the wifi extender, turn on the RC controller, then turn on your Phantom. now watch your networks on your device and see if the Phantom network shows up. If it does, try to connect. If it doesn't then there is probably something wrong with your wifi extender, the wifi module in the bird or something is hosed up in the firmware. I know you've probably already done this stuff but sometimes t's the simple things that gets us messed up. Let us know what you find out after trying it this way.

Yeah I have tried that several times now with no luck thanks anyway. I talked to DJI yesterday and they told me to try rebinding and if that didn't work to call today and they would start the repair process. I wish they would just send me a new range extender because im pretty sure thats the problem.

Sunny,

I know you probably don't want to spend any more money on this but DJI will probably charge you for the repairs and shipping anyway. If you really suspect the range extender, you might want to grab one of these:

Wish I could have been more help.

Well my range extender is shot. Dji gave me a RMA number so I can return it  and said it will be replaced free of charge. Thanks DJI.
