What should I do if my device keeps disconnecting from the internet when it’s connected to my TP-Link Range Extender?

The range extender may extend Wi-Fi signal but it does not maintain the connection. This FAQ will guide you to do some tests to exclude possibility caused by router other elements beside the range extender.

a device means: computers, laptops, mobile phones, etc.

Note: Refer to UG to get detailed info of the LED status.


Case 1


Step 1

Update the range extender to latest firmware.

Step 2

Contact TP-Link support with model number of your router and provide us with details on the problem. 


Case 2


Step 1

Disable then enable the wireless network connection of the device.

Step 2

To figure out the problem please place the RE near to the router to see whether the problem still exists.

Step 3

Check the IP address, default gateway and DNS of the device, when the range extender loses its connection.

Step 4

Contact TP-Link support with model number of your router and provide us with details on the problem.

How do I fix my TP-Link router as it disconnected several times? I have to buy two routers but after some month both routers in showing me same problem auto disconnecting network  I think tp-link not well brand

Every time I open my MacBook or use my iPhone to connect to the Internet, the device tries to connect via my _EXT network. It appears to succeed, but when I attempt to go to any URL the response is You Are Not Connected to the Internet. I have done all the troubleshooting steps suggested but nothing fixes the problem. One step I took was to start over with the tether process. That solved it for about 2 days, and then the problem was back.  I purchased the RE300 from Amazon and the return window closed July 11. Reading the Comment posts, I can see that this is a common problem, and tp-link seems to be indifferent to it. I searched for a way to enter a support ticket, but that approach doesn't seem to exist. Any recommendations?

Hello support, I have this issue as well on the TL-PA8030P Range Extender. We are living in oktober 2020. Is this issue, that seems to be there for years already, fixed at this moment or not? In the latter case I too will send them back to Amazon. If it is fixed, please help me with a solution. The last acvailable firmware is already on the devices. I disabled low power mode. What can I do?

RE220 firmware update available now? Extender will stop connecting to my home network. Need help
