Hardware Version:Archer VR600 v3 00000000
Firmware Version:1.3.0 0.9.1 v009e.0 Build 201122 Rel.66972n
Powerline (two sets)
Hardware Version: TL-WPA8631P V3
TL-WPA8631P firmware: TL-WPA8631P(EU)_V3_200314
I'm based in the UK. I have a OneMesh network set up using an Archer VR600 and two separate V3 TL-WPA8631P Kits. Using any WiFi device, I can roam between the areas covered by the two TL-WPA8631P units perfectly, and my WiFi stays connected, switches seamlessly, and works beautifully. However, if I move to the area covered by the VR600, the WiFi indicates it has a full signal, but all connectivity stops. If I stop & restart my WiFi on the device, it connects and works perfectly, but then connectivity fails when I try to roam back into an area covered by either of the TL-WPA8631P units.
The web interfaces on both the TL-WPA8631P units state that they are both part of the OneMesh network, the VR600 also says that it has them both in its OneMesh network.
Everything is running the latest firmware.
What do you advise please?
Edit: I had to restart everything, as I had some work done on my house. Seamless routing worked for for a day or so, then failed again. Thankfully I was able to run some tests as it was all happening. It appears to be an internal routing issue, probably from the VR600.
Internal Network Topology
TL-WPA8631P_1: OneMesh plus Ethernet cables wired to Server_1 (DHCP/DNS) & Server_2
TL-WPA8631P_2: OneMesh plus Ethernet cable wired to Server_3
TL-PA8010P_1: Ethernet cable wired to Printer
TL-PA8010P_2: Ethernet cable wired to VR600 Router
If I enable WiFi on my device in an area covered by TL-WPA8631P_1, I can ping all of my internal Servers, my Router and 22.214.171.124
If I roam to the area covered by the VR600 Router, I can ping my Router and 126.96.36.199, but none of my Servers or the Printer.
If I disable then re-enable wifi on my device, & re-connect within the area covered by the VR600, I can still only ping my Router and 188.8.131.52, but none of my Servers or the Printer.
If I move the Printer Ethernet cable away from TL-PA8010P_1 and plug it directly into the VR600 & the repeat all of the tests, when I roam to the area covered by the VR600 Router I can now ping my Router and 184.108.40.206 and the Printer.
This would appear to indicate that the VR600 Router isn't routing to the PowerLine network via TL-PA8010P_2, but can route to anything that it has directly connected to its Ethernet ports and to the WAN/Internet.
This all seems like I can replicate it easy enough, so what would you like me to do to help fix it?
