Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.0.0

Hi

 

I have two TL-WA1201 APs. One is in an area where relatively few devices connect and is abolutely fine. The other is in an area where eaily 25 plus devices connect (laptops/ipads/Echos and Particle Photons). The device with higher usage will "lock up" serveral times a day, requiring a power cycle (off/on) to get it working again. By "lock up" I mean that all devices are disconnected and presented with an incorrect WiFi password error.

 

I tried a factory reset and only changing SSID and password, no joy the problem persists.

 

The system log shows the following errors:

Dear TP-LINK,

 

I have exactly the same issues on my side, example:

 

Hardware Version: TL-WA1201 v2.0
Software Version: 1.0.0 Build 20191204 rel.41918

2020-07-12 15:54:26 led-controller[648]: <3> 288753 Config importing failed

2020-07-12 15:53:26 led-controller[648]: <6> 288051 Start to run LAN_ON

 

Are there any news regarding fixes (from what we can see on your support pages this problem is well known on various TP-LINK products) or should we send this not reliable hardware back to seller (or on warranty perhaps?)?

@boyek 

 

I had some sucess with using multiple SSIDs. I think there is an issue with the number of users. i going to replace this device.

@A_User 

Thank you for letting me know.

 

They advertise this piece of hardware even for corporate users (splitting SSIDs etc.) and it is going down at small home businness... with only two computers, two phones, cooking machine and simple POS terminal... six connections in total (!). On different Chinese company router there are no issues at all (except range of course) so all hardware connected is not bugged - we have pure TP-LINK device problem here. :(

I replaced my unit with an EAP225. So far working much better.
