I just obtained a four pack of the HS103 smart plugs first time. I downloaded the Kasa app to set each plug up.   As I go through the process to link the plug and the app it disconnects my whole internet.  My Netgear Nighthawk router gets disconnected and shuts my whole houses net down.  I do not know if its the app or the product itself but it will not let me set the products up and I have no idea why that is. Anyone have these issues and figure it out?  Otherwise I am returning them.  To many other plugs out there to have to deal with this.  Thanks for the help.

Scott

@SharonM  I updated firmware on router and it fixed it.

I've seen smart plugs rebooting, but not capable of taking down a router?

 

If you are noticing your network going down, that usually pertains to IP conflicts. I'm not sure if you are doing any static IP addressing in any of your network products, but I would look over your network to verify that.

 

I would also follow up with your router manufacturer as well so they can go over the logs to see the potential cause.

@Tony  Yeah I do not know.  It is the only item I ever tried hooking to my internet that has done this.   Other brand smart plugs hooked up great but these are not.
