The reason I am asking you may be experiencing some sort of interference. So we need to narrow the problem down. Because those are good access points. So I am more than happy to help you resolve the problem.

No. Would this affect people not being able to connect even when standing right next to the AP?

So you have Mac Address Reservation for each Access Point within the DHCP settings of the router? Technically Yes you can do that but I would recommend that you remote into each access point and statically assign the ip address to each access point.

Yes.

Ok, I'll change the ISP router configuration to only have DHCP from 192.168.1.5-254 and have the APs manually configured with static IP outside of the DHCP pool as .2 .3 & .4 and see if that improves anything.

Also what encryption are you using on the network? Some devices have issues with connecting with WPA2 Encryption. If you have the APs using WPA2 and you are having connectivity issues. Change it to WPA and that should resolve the connectivity problems.

Yes. They are all WPA2 as far as I'm aware. I'll change all APs to WPA only and see what happens.

Fingers crossed!

Make sure that you change the encryption on the devices that are connecting to the network are also using WPA.

Yup I'll just 'forget network' on all devices and reset them back up.

One more thing there hard charger, I need for you to check again the firmware version of your WAPs. You mentioned earlier that mosts of your WAPs are new. That's wonderful I love working with new equipment. But there's no way of telling how long your WAPs have been sitting on the shelf in the warehouse before they were shipped to you.

 

TP-Link could have made several revisions of firmware for your WAPs. So just to be safe check and make sure you have the latest firmware my young Jedi Apprentice  :warrior:

Some of the less than new APs are hardware V4 so I'll check the firmware on them but the newest ones are all V5 which only have release firmware available and weirdly isn't even listed on your link.

V5 seems to only be for my region atm - http://www.tp-link.com.au/download/TL-WA901ND.html#Firmware

Wow yes, go with your links version and make sure all the WAPs have the same firmware version. Now, what's the progress looking like? Are you still having connectivity problems? Please give me an update. I want to make sure you are good to go.
