Model : TL-WA850RE & Archer C7

Hardware Version : 1.2

Firmware Version : 3.14.8 Build 140826 Rel.63335n

ISP :

Hi folks. I have a TL-WA850RE Range Extender after my main router, an Archer C7. I want to use my iPad on the Range Extender. It's failing me miserably.

Main router on main floor on the far side of the house. Where should I put the extender so that it can talk to both my iPad on the top floor (2 floors up)?

Thank you

The ipad is on the third floor while the main router is on the first floor?
If so, I don't think range extender is the best solution for you to extend Wi-Fi network. It would be much better to use powerline extender.
Did you try to place the WA850RE on the second floor? How many signal lights will be on on the extender? It is better to have three or four signal lights on.

Correct. I have the Extender on the second floor. Main router to Extender is across the house, one floor up. Signal is 80% or above, from my experience, but it's dirt slow.
