Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: TL-WPA4220(EU)_V1_160525

Hello,

 

I am trying to extend a wireless network using my TL-WPA4220. However, I don't have a Poweline network anymore. So, I want to use the TL-WPA4220 as a typical range extender. Is this possible?

Good day.

For the TL-WPA4220, If you only has one adapter, it needs to be connected directly to the home router via Ethernet cable, working as an access point, could not work as a wireless range extender.

Thank you very much.

@TP-Link thank you for the reply, I really appreciate it.

I was expecting that. Good thing it does work as an access point when connected through Ethernet, not being part of a powerline network.
