It is advised against connecting to WiFi networks broadcasted by WiFi signal amplifiers. When passing through these devices, networks are often on different channels, leading to potential connection problems on phones and computers.

(9) Check if Your WiFi Router Enabled Guest Mode

If the router is in guest mode, where there is a separate network for guests and one for the host, it can lead to connection issues. If guest mode is active, kindly deactivate it in the router settings. (Usually, the login details for the router's backend are found on the router's back panel).
