Model: TL-WA850RE  
Hardware Version:
Firmware Version:

Hello everyone. 

 

Long story short my repeater is set on wireless repeater mode. It won't allow more than 2 devices to be connected simultaneously. If I disconnect my phone then I can connect my laptop etc etc. This happens with every device that tries to connect. I have reset it to factory settings 20 times. Nothing changes. I just don't understand why this happens. 

 

Thanks in advance

Hello, may I know does your RE connect to router by Ethernet cable or by Wi-Fi? 

 

 

If you connect Modem --- RE rather than Router to RE. you may have this problem, as modem could only assign 1 IP address to a single device. 

 

May I know the model of your router and your network topology, what is the IP & gateway on the device which has Internet from RE?

So the router is given by my ISP.  The RE is connected via WiFi. The default gateway for the router is 192.168.1.1

@Dimalvel Hello, thank your update

 

Here is the latest firmware for TL-WA850RE and make sure firmware is the latest first (need select hardware version firest)

https://www.tp-link.com/support/download/tl-wa850re/#Firmware

 

May I know did you set up a different SSID for RE from router's , if devices connected to router at the time, is there any problem? 

For "If I disconnect my phone then I can connect my laptop etc etc" what is the Error message if you try to add the 3rd device? 

 

What are the model & OS of the Wi-Fi clients?Can you login to RE and share us a photo of the client list at that time? 

 

 

> Do not use static IP on your client, but let them obtain IP address automatically to avoid IP conflict. 

> Please check if there is any advanced settings on router, like access control, whitelist on router. 

>May I know the model number of your router and your network topology? Many thanks~
