Hi,

I'm trying to extend my network, I have a brand new Virgin Hub 3.0, and for some reason I can't get my  TL-WPA8630P to clone the the wifi settings.

I've tried a number of times all without success; I've tried pressing the 'Pair WPS' button on the router first and then the 'WIFI' button on the extender, I've also tried it the other way around and still no joy.

 

The first time I tried the clone it kicked my Virgin router offline and then made it very flakey, resulting in me having to contact their technical support to get them to reset the router.

I've also rebooted my router, at least twice.

When I first plugged the extender in I couldn't see the 'tl-link' wifi network so I've factory reset my range extender.

I've upgraded the firmware on the extender from the TP-Link site.

It still won't work....!

 

Anyone managed to get this to work?

 

I've attached a screenshot of the system log to show the couple of times I've tried to clone and failed..

@MSMurfitt 

 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused here, we have not received such feedback yet, we will try to get a Virgin Media hub at our end to do a test;

 

Back to your case, we can change the wireless settings manually to the same as the main router's wifi via the tpPLC utility.

 

Below is the download link and the instruction to customize the wireless settings.

May it help and have a great day.
