Hi all,

I while back I set up my house with one TP-Link TL-WPA4220 kit and an extra two AV600 Powerline range extender units and they were working well but in the last week I have noticed that my (and my wife's) mobile phones won't connect to the wi-fi! we get a message saying there is no network available (or something like that at least).

Does anyone know what has happened and if so what I can do to correct it please? I believe that in the powerline utility icon on my desktop it is possible to create new passwords etc but I haven't got a clue how to do that. Actually, I have just opened this icon and there appears to be nothing stored on it regarding my powerline adapter or extenders under the "network" tab!

Any help will as always be very much appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hi
I have a similar problem with mine.
I unplug the master unit for 10 to 20 seconds and plug it in again.
It re-connects to the other units after a couple of minutes.

Hi,
Glad it worked for you.

Mine drops out regularly - not sure why - but the solution is simple enough :)
