Firmware Version :


Model : TL-WA850RE
Hardware Version : EU V5.0
Firmware Version : 1.0.0 Build 20171218 Rel. 58240 (and any earlier releases)

Main router connected direct to internet: TL-WR1043ND

Setup was easy and everything went fine and it works quite good (as in attachment).
But after some time (its different sometimes 2-3 minutes, sometimes 10) it lose connection to the internet (or mayby to main router [COLOR=#000000]TL-WR1043ND) (mobile phone is still connected to WA850RE and has full wifi range but apperas notification that there is no connection to the internet).
In most cases internet backs in 1-5 minutes, but sometimes WA850RE need to be reset. It makes when internet is in usage (or shortky after reset), so I don't think it mayby caused by some suspend modes or something.

It's very annoing, and make device useless.

I tried all firmwares, and restored to default settings many times, different WiFi settings (no secured, WEP, WPA, WPA2 - always the same problem).

Is any solution to make something that device willbe usable? Maybe something in [COLOR=#000000]TL-WR1043ND need to be done?

what is the distance between RE and Router? when internet stops on extender, can you login extender and router from devices which are currently connected to extender not main Wi-Fi?
also if the RE light is off which means extender lose connection to TL-WR1043ND. we can fix the channel on 1043 to 1 or 11, channel width to 20Mhz.
by the way, have you tried firmware upgrade for both unit? if no, you can try that first.
