Model: RE305  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

I bought a RE305 to extend the wifi signal in my house. Router is downstairs and my study is upstairs, and signal up there is not strong. Wifi is BT broadband.

I followed the instructions to set the extender up, but when i connected my laptop/phone to the extender's network, it said i had no internet connection and it wouldnt let me connect to the web browser or via Tether. I then tried connecting via the WPS button. that didnt seem to work initially (the signal light kept blinking), but eventually it seemed to work.

 

I now have a solid signal light on the extender, and the 5 GHz light is also on, and i can see the extender network as an available network on my devices, but when i connect to it, it says no internet connection and will not let me connect to the internet.

 

Curiously, when i go onto the Tether app on my phone via the extender network, it does recognise the extender, and says i am connected to the router via the 5 GHZ network, but i still dont have internet connection for any other purpose (e.g. when i try to log in using the TP-Link ID, it says "no internet").

 

Can anyone suggest what to do, or what i am doing wrong?!

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Will

Good day,

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

May I know the model number of your BT home router?

I think it might be caused by the DHCP server on the RE305.

And there is a beta firmware for the DHCP function and please update the firmware to have a look.

Please feel free to update here with further improvement.

 

Thanks a lot.
