So one would need a phone plan for this spare phone?

That'll probably cost at least $10/month, right?


Yes, the phone will need some kind of data plan. T-Mobile used to give 200MB of data a month for free. Not sure if that’s still offered.

+1 for the Belkin N300, cheap, easy to set up and works fine.

I purchased a Netgear N300 range extender (Model EX2700). All the steps seem to go great except it never connects to the Outlander wifi to extend it. I've tried it with the same SSID and a different one. I've tried with different passwords and the same. I just keep going through the same loop over and over with it never connecting to the Outlander. Does it need to be registered like a smartphone with the lock/unlock sequence on the fob? Because I tried that too to no avail. Any advice?

Thanks.

I have this range extender and I also can't use it with the Outlander.

Netgear N300 EX2700 does not work for my outlander PHEV either. I even tried static IP/DNS settings etc. It just won't connect.

Also tried a repurposed ASUS RT-N10 with DD-WRT and that would not connect.

I am successfully (with a twist) using a repurposed ASUS RT-AC68R in extender mode with standard ASUS firmware. Good strong repeated signal on both 2.4G and 5G.

As mentioned in other posts, the Outlander PHEV II App will not connect to anything other than the car SSID, so the repeater 2.4 and 5G are set to the car SSID.

Now the twist: When i drive away and come back, the ASUS AC68R does not reconnect without a power cycle! So automated that with a motion detector, power off/wait a minute/power back on whenever car motion is detected.

Is anyone else having reconnect issues with any other extender?

Also, I would like to reuse my AC68 as a router so is the Belkin N300 really rock solid?


Wish Mitsubishi would fix this and allow the car to connect to a home WiFi network...

Set up in the car, connected to a powerbank that is connected to a usb-charger ?
(the link on charger is not mine)

Just wanted to add that the TP Link N300 range extender also does not work. It was on sale for under $20 so I thought I would give it a try.

Pairing and extending the network was fine but the PHEV app would not connect to the car.
