TP Link Troubleshooting Guide

Important Queries and Their Solutions

TP Link Extender Power LED Blinking Red

If the power LED on your TP Link WiFi range extender is blinking red then it means that it is not getting a steady power supply or placed away from the reach of your existing router.

To get a fix for this query, do the following:

  • Place the extender near to your router.
  • Provide the extender continuous power supply. This can only be possible if you choose a working and non-damaged wall outlet for it.

Extender Not Connecting to the Router

If your extender is not connecting to the router, then ensure the following:

  • Have you used an Ethernet connection for connecting the devices? If yes, then please be certain that the cable you have used for the same is in working condition. Apart from this, be sure that the connection between them is finger-tight.
  • If you have used wireless source for the same, ensure that your range extender is broadcasting SSID, and your router is securely accessing it.
  • Thirdly, make sure that you have used the correct password to access the extender’s SSID.

Unable to Set Up TP Link Extender

This is the issue I have experienced multiple times. Don’t sweat over it! I succeeded and that is why I am here to share my personal experience with you. Look, if you are unable to configure your TP Link WiFi range extender, then it can be due to one of the following reasons.

Reason 1: Not followed the exact configuration steps that were provided on tplinkrepeater setup page.

Reason 2: You have left the configuration process incomplete.

Reason 3: Sudden power outage while configuring the device.

Reason 4: Provided wrong extender login password to reach the setup page of the device.

Note: not working can also be one of the reasons behind the issue. Why? If the web address is not working, then how would you reach the setup page of your range extender? And, if you are unable to access the extender’s setup page, then how will you complete the configuration process?

Don’t worry! Further in this post, I will provide you the tips to fix not working issue.

TP Link Extender not Working

Look, if you have performed the TP Link WiFi extender process correctly and it is still not working, then it means that it needs to be updated. So, without much delay, visit the firmware update page of your TP Link device using its default IP, provide its model number, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Note: Please do not interrupt the firmware update process. Do not turn off the extender. And, do not go online of click on any link.

Alas! TP Link extender stopped working suddenly after firmware update. Is this query similar to yours? If you nod in yes, then chances are:

You haven’t downloaded the firmware update file as per the extender model you have.

Surely, you have interrupted the process or a sudden power cut has taken place.

Well, the only way to fix the issue is to reset your extender first and again download the firmware of your range extender. Doing so will make your TP Link extender up and running. Not Working

If the web address is not working for you, then:

  • Ensure that you have gained access to the extender’s default SSID.
  • Be sure that the SSID of your TP Link device is enable or broadcasting it.
  • Make sure that you have cleared the browsing history and refreshed the web page.

What’s More Important?

Be certain that there aren’t any typos in the web address. To prevent the same, copy and paste in the URL bar. Don’t ever do the mistake of using the search bar or an outdated web browser.
