I'm running a standard home network - just one router providing broadband access for a number of devices - laptops, tablets both android and Apple, and phones, again both android and apple.
I recently bought a TP Link wifi range extender - not so much for the ability to extend the range, but rather for the use of the ethrenet connection.
The range extender has been set up without any issues, and the connection seems to be working fine, however, once i power it up, the various Apple products seem to lose their connection to the original home network - the ipad, ipod and iphones, while the laptops and android still seem to operate perfectly fine.
The range extender shares all the same properties as the original network so can't seem to figure out why this might be causing an issue.
I'm at a loss - i've no doubt its something to do with IP address or DCHP - but im a bit of a novice in this dept and would very much appreciate some advice as to what might be causing this issue.
The original router is a ZyXEL P-660HN-T1A and the range extender is a TP=Link TL-WA850RE.
Any advice you might be able to offer would be very much appreciated.
