@Solla-topee hello

 

The range extender may extend Wi-Fi signal but it does not maintain the connection. This FAQ will guide you to do some tests to exclude possibility caused by router other elements beside the range extender.

End-device means computer, laptop, mobile phone, etc.

What should I do if my device keeps disconnecting from the internet when it’s connected to TP-Link Range Extender?

I have recently bought a TP-LINK WA801N v6 (with latest Firmware) and have configured it as a WiFi-WiFi extender.

 

Connection has been made with Modem (same SSID) but the connection constantly drops out then back in making it quite useless.

 

Using the progran NETSPOT the graph (attached) shows that the Modem signal is constant yet the WA801N fluctuates on/off every 20 seconds.

 

I also have an old TP-LINK TL-WR702N Nano Router configured "in the same position as the 801N" that gives an excellent constant signal - never dips.

 

The attached screen shows the TP-LINK WA801N v6 losing connection then regaing the signal.

 

Thanks

  @Smooooy 

 

I received a notice that you replied but could not see any entry. Are you pointing to your generic reply re fault finding ? If so did all those checks and did not solve problem.

 

Also as I explained - I also have an old TP-LINK TL-WR702N Nano Router configured "in the same position as the 801N" that gives an excellent constant signal - never dips.

 

I decided to inform the retailer about the problem and we settled to try another model TP-LINK WR940N. Installed it, configured exactly like previous model ( WA801N v6 ) in exactly same position ran signal strength monitor and received an excellent constant signal.

 

I'm 100% sure that the original unit WA801N v6 was faulty.
