PSA - Wink can't handle foreign character SSIDs

TL;DR - I put in a new wi-fi system a couple of months back to one of those mesh systems. Almost all of my apps were able to make the transition to the new network, except for my Wink Hub.

I called support several times to try to resolve it, but to no avail. On my last call, I mentioned to the tech that my SSID had foreign characters in its name. He suggested that I setup my wi-fi systems guest network to use only ASCII characters in the SSID as a test - sure enough, it worked flawlessly.

Has anyone seen this behavior on the Wink Hub 2? (Mine is an original wink hub).

I guess if google went there, Apple was sure to follow.

Our doodle in Israel marks the 60th birthday of Israeli astronaut Ilan Ramon. As the only foreign recipient of the U.S Congressional Space Medal of Honor, Ramon is an inspirational figure to people around the world.
