I have a home network in which I use the same SSID. After setting up the above model, I changed the SSID to the home name. Is there a way to check if the extender is connected to the internet using windows, android or linux? I can connect to the internet but cannot tell if it is through the tp-link extender or the home router or another home AP.
[Edit] I re-set to factory default to see which wifi point I was connected to and confirmed I had internet, so problem solved.
