Hello I need help!

 

I purchased this device today as I wanted to use it as an access point and set up a WiFi network for my outbuilding in my garden which has an Ethernet cable running from the back of my router in the main house to the outbuilding.

 

When I put an ethernet cable into the TP Link device and to the Ethernet supply slot in the outbuilding the Internet light keeps flashing and when I try to access the internet from my phone, I can't. The power light is solid as expected and so is the WiFi (the 3rd icon), its just the Internet light (the 2nd icon) that keeps flashing. 

 

However when I connect the TP Link device directly into my main router everything works as it should. 

 

When I connect my personal laptop by ethernet in the outbuilding it works and I can get on the Internet, but I wasn't able to get on the Internet in the outbuilding with my work laptop.

 

Can anyone help?!

Make sure you're with the latest FW release for TL-WR902AC - here.

If TL-WR90AC works with a shorter cable connected to your main router, your issue probably is with the long ethernet cable to your outbuilding.

Log in TL-WR902AC web management interface when it is connected in the outbuilding and check its LAN IP address:

 

 

Then connect TL-WR902AC direcly to your main router and make the same check and compare. If there's a difference then TL-WR902AC doesn't like your outbuilding cable.
