    Hello.
    I bought a HUAWEI B525 LTE modem from T-Mobile. Everything went well until I set up and connected to the TP LINK TL-WA830RE extender network to increase range - 2 pieces. The next day I noticed that computers often lose range or cannot connect.
    questions:
    - can these extenders be configured somehow or should they be replaced?
    - I still have a router ASUS DSL-N55U - is it possible to set it as an extender
    - future question - what WIFI signal booster can you recommend.
    Have a nice day.

    No, the network will "work" like on WA-830, which is poor. This behavior of repeaters is the norm. This is an unreliable, unstable mode that cuts the speed by half. In order to improve WiFi coverage, an additional AP connected via LAN with B525 cable or PLC transmitters via the electric network is used. The general rule is stationary devices connected by cable and mobile devices by WiFi. WA-830 can be used as an AP. Also N55 can be configured in this mode.

    PLC transmitters are devices that use an electrical installation to transmit a LAN signal? Which transmitters would you recommend in my case?
  • Network and Internet Specialist
    The cheapest set with 2x PLC, one of which has AP with WiFi is D-LINK DHP-W311AV, at Allegro you can buy for PLN 100.

    Are there any restrictions on such devices over the electricity network?
  • Network and Internet Specialist
    Yes, the speed depends on whether the devices are connected to the same phase, or if there are meters along the way, how long the electrical network between them is and what kind of it is.

    Is it possible for these devices to work properly on circuits from other meters?
