    I lost first P2V+

    I still have the old controller and wifi.

    I can see how to bind to the 2nd wifi. Is there a way to bind to both? I'd like to use whichever one is on.

    In the app, try renaming the second Wi-Fi identical to the other. Not sure if it goes by MAC ID or name...hopefully by name...so if you name them identically it should bind with whichever one you have turned on.

    hmmm, unfortunately that didn't work

    seems like there should be a way to make use of this second controller and wifi but they make it pretty complicated to switch back and forth

    So it is binding with the MAC address and not the SSID?

    In another thread on here a guy is working on the GUI for passwording the extender/Vision+. I wonder if the MAC is hardcoded, or it it could be modified? Many routers offer a way to assign a specific MAC to the device. I wonder if the extender allows this? He would be the one to ask.
