Model: TL-WPA8631P KIT  
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: TL-WPA8631P KIT(UK)_V3_220330

I may be posting this in the wrong section as possibly a router issue but here goes.

 

My Archer AX53 / AX3000 will recognize my two TL-WPA8631P extenders as Easymesh/Onemesh devices when the extenders are freshly booted.
After a while it stops 'seeing them' as mesh devices, although they are still operating on the network.
 

Before the update form Onemesh to Easymesh they would appear in the dashboard in the Mesh Devices tab with the yellow circle showing '2' but would regularly disappear and only be reinstated after they were rebooted.

Since the change to Easymesh the same pattern is happening but even though the two extenders are clearly showing in the list (see below) the yellow circle says '0' Mesh devices!?


 

Does anyone know of a way I can definitively test/verify that my extenders are part of the Mesh network even though the router says they aren't??
Alternatively does anyone know of a solution to fix this odd behaviour?

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

There are still a few more places that can give you some clues whether they are connected as EasyMesh or not.

 

1) On the AX53 check from within the "EasyMesh" menu. If you click on the small "edit" icon (paper and pen) it will show the actual link speed of the wireless connection (should be > 0).

 

2) Log into the web interface of the extender(s) and check if the options in the Wi-Fi menu are all grayed out and locked, which should indicate that the extender is still being managed by the main router.

When is firmware with EasyMesh published for TL-WPA8631P V3?

I have an NX510V that can only do EasyMesh, not OneMesh.

NX510V details:  1.0.0 3.0.0 v6060.0 Build 230321 Rel.72292n

Thanks  @woozle 
Everything checks out per your comments.
I'm guessing that the router recognises them as mesh devices, but they don't appear in the yellow circle because the Powerline devices don't yet support Easymesh.

Hi,

 

I have a similar problem with my TL-WPA8635P connected to a Archer C80 as a main router. It keeps dropping out of the EasyMesh table descibed above in hte router settings. 

 

I really want to have a stable ad reliable systems. When this powerline unit drops out it really is not clear whether or not it is part of the EasyMesh network and providing wifi support. 

 

Looking forward to hearing more from TP-Link before this kit is put up for sale!

 

thanks

 

Mark
