I just got a new TL-WA850RE range extender. I followed the instructions on how to set it up via the Tether app. However, it only allows 8 devices to connect. I checked the IP address pool, it should actually allow up to 200 users and I dont see any settings that says that it only allows 8 devices. DHCP is set on auto so it should not be a problem. However, I noticed that the assigned IP address has its last octet in random, it is not sequence. Not sure though if that matters but most of the time I think it should actually be in sequence.
Also, the manual does not say anything about only allowing a certain number of connections. Is it really just limited to 8 devices? How can I fix it to allow more than 8 devices. Need help on how to resolve this. Thanks in advance and I appreciate all your thoughts on this.
