!) The Hub 6 has been installed in exactly the same place as Hub 1 but the signal strengh appears to be lower, which I was not expecting.
I am unable to connect to my range extender (TP-Link Model TL-WA850RE Ver.1.23) despite trying numerous time, and which connected to Hub 1 witthout any problems.
Any help would be appreciated
Fixed! Go to the fix.
Re: Changed from Hub1 to Hub 6/Working but a couple of queries
The signal strength might appear lower as you are using different channels. Use a wifi sniffer app, I use Wifi Analyser on an Android phone to see what channels you are using and the signal strengths
Reset your range extender by pushing a paperclip or similar into the reset hole. Keep the switch closed for at least 25 seconds. This will clear the Plusnet Hub interface settings. Then set it up again from scratch
Thanks for your reply. I alrady use "WiFi Ananalyser" which I have found to be very useful.
After more tries yesterday I gave up and unplugged the extender. This morning I plugged it in again and a login and password came up when I tried the access the internet. I tried admin and I was directed to the set up page for the extender.. Installed the information and the extender connected to te router. I have never had the login page come up on the screen before even when using Hub 1. I hate to think how many hours I have wasted tryng to get the extender to work.
Thanks for your help
