Model: Archer T4U
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version:

Hello all,

 

I have an issue with trying to connect my T4U adapter to any 5GHz connections. When I try to connect, I notice that my adapter will sometimes disconnect as if it has been unplugged, and then reappear as if it was plugged in again. Once I am connected to my 5GHz connection, I tend to get about 10 sections of good speed before even web browsing is almost impossible.

 

I have a TP-Link Archer C6 (also JP version) and I have also tried another D-Link router. Both have the same problem. I did read that the Onemesh on the A6 might be causing issues. Does anyone have any ideas? I've tried to find a solution on my own for weeks now.

 

I am using a 64 bit version of Windows 10.

Quick note,

After viewing this post and updating my Archer C6 router to shut off One Mesh, the problem is solved:

@Evan1990 Good day,

Thank you for reporting the issue and sharing case solution yesyes

This may be related to Smart Connect Feature on some router, Smart Connect will automatically select a 5Gh channel for router, while most Wi-Fi adapter supports Band1 5Ghz channel 36/40/44/48 . Users who met the same issue could also try to turn off Smart Connect off and try 36/40/44/48 channels on router and see if that helps:

 

Why cannot the adaptor detect the 5G Wi-Fi of my router?
