I have a Ring and the same router and it works. As the other poster said, you'll need to connect on the 2.4GHz network, not the 5GHz. Also, I find that the Ring has really weak wifi reception. I can stand on my front porch and get a strong 2.4GHz wifi signal on a phone/tablet, but the Ring complains the network is too weak, so I use a cheap ($30 Netgear) network extender to extend the 2.4GHz network to my porch.


Don't forget that you'll have to take the faceplate off the Ring and push the reset button to change the network settings.


If that still fails, try setting up your Ring standing next to your router. Can it see the network there? Do you have the 2.4GHz network on?
