What happens when you enter wrong WIFI Password as a Backup while doing Hub Pairing via Cable
When setting up a hub, you have the choice of pairing it via cable or WiFi.
If you select the cable option and accidentally enter the wrong WiFi password during the backup option on Step 8 of Pairing.
Hub will still pair successfully. However, it's important to be aware that the incorrect password will take effect when you unplug the Ethernet cable, as the hub will attempt to switch to a WiFi connection.
If the WiFi password was entered incorrectly during pairing, the hub will not be able to switch to WiFi and will display a blinking red light
To prevent this issue, ensure that you enter the correct WiFi password during the pairing process. If you encounter a situation where the hub blinks red after unplugging the Ethernet cable, it's likely that you entered the wrong password as the backup option.
In this event, there are two options to resolve the issue:
Firstly, you can pair the hub via cable again and ensure that you enter the correct password
Alternatively, you can pair the hub via the "Pair Hub With Wifi" option, as the hub will only pair successfully if the correct password is entered during the WiFi pairing process.
Also, it will be beneficial to check if Hub firmware is on the latest firmware which supports ethernet pairing i.e version 1.9.0.
