Modem: Netgear CG3100
Wifi extender: Linksys RE6300
I recently bought a Linksys RE6300 to extend the wifi range of my modem. When I have the wifi extender connected I find that my internet constantly keeps dropping out. I have a computer connected directly by ethernet to the modem. I have done the following troubleshooting steps:
1) Reboot modem: This solves the connection for a few minutes
2) Reset to factory default
3) Checked cable connection for obstruction or faults
4) Rebooted computer
5) Updated firmware on Wifi Extender
When I disconnect the Wifi Extender the internet comes back to life and I no longer have the problem.
Was this helpful?
Thanks for reaching out. Do the lights change when it drops out and if so, which ones?
Please let us know.
I think I'll return the wifi extender as a last resort.
I'll have a look at Linksys support for any solutions.
