    Hi, there's no way to make that happen. The repeater is only designed to work with secured networks. Honestly, even connecting to secure network from some routes is a hard task on it and thinking of a workaround for unsecured networks seems like a distant possibility.



  • Anyone searching for this, you can download an old version of the mi home app from third party websites and it will let you add unsecured. Search for " Mi Home 5.1.16"

    The reason people want to do this is to extend cheap 'toy' FPV drone range - they are not connected to internet and just using Wifi to stream video from the toy drone to the device so security isn't much of an issue that it would be.
