Question

Installing access point

Hi,

I'm installing my TP Link access point as an extender/repeater to get a stronger WiFi signal throughout my house. Although when the AP is done and set up I don't get a WiFi signal from my router downstairs.. Any insight?

Let's hear location, location, location.

For a repeater to work, well most don't for me, I place it halfway from the router to the target area. If you can't pick up the repeater at the half way point it's defective or just never going to work. Next up? Powerline networking.

Wired

The AP is running wired from my router. Could you elaborate on powerline

So the AP is wired.

Standing by the AP, can you see and connect?

Powerline WiFi is on the web but here's a graphic folk seem to like and I think it tells almost all of what it does.
