    I have just bought Mi Box and here is the huge dissapointment:
    I have a DSL router upstairs. Downstairs, there is an WRP-300 device, connected by cable as an Access Point - it spreads the signal of the router. Every single device (laptops, mobiles) have no problem to see Access Point's WiFi and have full range connection. However, Mi Box can see ONLY upstairs router and no WiFi from AP. It connects properly to the router, but of course the connection is very bad, since it is 15 meters away. Can I do something about it? Why every device can see AP WiFi and Mi Box cannot?

    Thank you for your suggestions. Here is what I did:
    - Changed AP's SSID to unique one
    - Changed AP's channel to other than router
    - Turned on DHCP

    Now Mi Box can see AP and properly connects to it.
