Firmware Version: 1

Hi,

 

I've got two TP-Link RE300 AC1200's and have set them up working using the configuration app, but have I done it the right/best way?

 

1. Should the extender networks use the same network names as my Virgin router or should they have different names?

- I've called my extender network 'Router-5G-EXT-Hall' and 'Router-5G-EXT-Kitchen'

- But should they all be 'Router-5G' the same aas the router?

 

2. Can these devices only extend one 5G and one 2G network?

- My router has three networks - i) 5G for the family, ii) 2G for the family, iii) 2G for visitors with a simple password.

- When I configure the extender it only gives me the option for one 5G network and one 2G network - is this right?

 

Thanks,

 

Andy

Hello,

 

1. The extender can use a different network name from your Virgin router. But the password of them must be the same.

 

If you want to change it, you can refer to this FAQ to customize it:

https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/faq/1402/

 

2. The range extender can only extend one 5G and one 2.4G network.

 

May it help and have a nice day!
