Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

I managed to connect a TL-WPA4220 V1 (AV500) to a TL-WPA4220KIT V4 (AV600) setup and this works when i use wired connections on both extenders.

Also the 4220 (v4) can be logged on using the web interface and i have changed the SSID and password. 

 

The problem i have though, is that i cannot use the web interface to update the SSID on the 4220 v1 and it only works with cable or with the default WiFi settings.

Not even after a factory reset.

 

It gives me the usual error:

 

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trying to Configure the Powerline Extender?

It looks like you may have run into an issue

If you're connecting to the Router directly, you will be unable to access the Powerline Extender's management page by using http://tplinkplc.net

Connect to the Powerline Extender wirelessly and try the link http://tplinkplc.net again.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Only the new 4220 (v4) can be configured via the web interface.

What is the problem you think?

 

PS. Also i cannot install or uninstall the tpPLC_Utility_Windows as there is a broken old installation. How can i fix that as well?

firmware: 1.2.9 Build 180509 Rel.55268n

 

And once again, the last idea is the one to work....

 

I connected the laptop to the default SSID of the 4220 v1

I started the v1 specific utility "Powerline Scan.exe"

It detected the 4220 v1 and gave me an option through the tool to connect to it.

It connected to ip http://192.168.178.238/ which is not an ip address i have seen around (or maybe i missed?)

used the default credentials and i was able to change what i needed (SSID, pwd etc)

 

just putting it here so if i forget it, i will search for the forum and find it! :-D
