Model : TL-WA850RE

Hardware Version :

Firmware Version :

ISP : TOTAL PLAY (México)

Hello tto everyone,

As the title suggest, I'm experiencing problems trying to connect my repeater TL-WA850RE to extend the wifi network of my Huawei router HG8245H. I have followed the instructions of the quick instalation guide with no success both options, i.e. the configuration using WPS and the option using the web browser with the ethernet cable. At the end of the quick setup the configuration site shows the message "Connection failed. please check the host ssid or password". The router SSID and password are not the problem since I have some other devices connected to this router using the same SSID and password :-/.

Please, does anybody knows a solution for this?? If you need more informations, plese ask me.

Good day.

Sorry for the delay.

May I know the model number, hardware and firmware version of your range extender? is it 850RE as well?

After the setup with Huawei router (HG8245H), did the 2.4ghz or 5ghz(or RE and signal lights) lit up?

Have you seen the suggestions here

I had the same problem as you. After many, many hours of fustration, I finally saw something on my many Google searches about channels, so I changed the channel on my router from 12 to 11. It works now. I tested channels 1-11 and they all worked, except channel 9.

I don't know if this is your problem, but it worked for me.
