Hello,

 

If you want to connect this WA860RE to your existing powerline network via Ethernet cable, please change the working mode to Access Point as below:

How to configure the range extender as an access point

 

Then plug it into the powerline adapter with an Ethernet cable.

@Solla-topee 

I accesed the link the it is written in German, why?

My Wi-fii Range extender is Eu/1.1 the user interface is very different, I could not fallow the instractions from this link https://www.tp-link.com/de/support/faq/1401/

The user intreface has a grey dashboard with a green banner on the top. I suppose is a very old version.

Hello, sorry that WA860RE V1 doesn't support Access Point mode and it can only act as a wireless extender, so you cannot connect it to the existing powerline ethernet network.

 

Sorry again for any misunderstanding caused by the previous answer.
