Hi there

 

I've connected from my laptop at home to my desktop in my office via remote desktop for several years. Today I've had to replace the wifi extender as the old one died. I bought the kit but am still using the previous powerline adapter as it is a passthrough. I'm just using the new wifi extender.

 

They've paired fine and i have a wired and wifi signal in my home office. But i cannot connect from home. the old configuration worked fine until the extender died whch suggests that its something to do with the new unit.

 

Is there a setting that i need to change on the new unit? Or anything else that might work?

 

Many thanks in advance

Hello   @melbob 

sorry for the late reply, if the Windows remote desktop does not work when a destop connect to new Wifi network, what I could think of is the Public/ Private network settings on your Windows PC.

If a Windows PC in private network,it is accessible in the local network.
