Hi

I have had to change my router etc, so have a new wifi and a new password.

Obviously the inverter no longer connects, the only info i have doesnt show my se3000 (ask to use wps).
I cannot get any further as the se3000 asks for a password, which i presume is set by the installers.

Anyone got a guide?

    Hi

    Couldn't the new router be set up with the same SSID & password as the old router? ... we always have an older router which is set-up ready to swap in without any connectivity issues if there's a failure, it's standard contingency planning ...

    Sadly not, the new router wouldnt accept the old password, not to required strength etc

    Two suggestions.
    Firstly, could you install an ethernet cable between the inverter and your router. My Solaredge inverter is hardwired and doesn't need reconfiguring even if the subnet address range changes, as can happen when you change broadband provider.

    If that is impractical could you configure your old router as a subnet on your new router (i.e. a repeater).

    All sorted now, thanks to everyone helping.
    Password helped.
    Bit of a faff entering new network password, wps didn't seem to work either, once the inverter eventually found the wifi (took a few searches)

    Seem to remember the menu is a real pain to navigate with essentially two buttons consisting of either short press or long press, wps was much easier than trying to enter a password.
    I think....
