I have a
Dell Inspiron 5370 which has the
Qualcomm QCA9377 802.11ac Wireless Adapter. I have a
TP-Link TL-WR841N 300Mbps Wireless-N Router in the other room.
Thinkpad used to get the wifi signals fine even in my other room. But the Dell couldn't. So I purchased the
Netgear Wifi Extender & set it up with the same SSID - so that the laptop seamlessly works when I move it across rooms. This worked fine for a month. But since then I am facing issues - my laptop tries to connect to the extender but fails & then goes back to connecting to the router whose signal is too weak & hence unusable. I have to turn the extender on 2-3 times & also disconnect/connect to the SSID 2-3 times on the laptop before it successfully connects to the extender. The extender is very close to the laptop so it's not a signal strength problem. All the lights on the extender also seem to be fine/same when it does connect to the extender & when it doesn't. I have even done a factory reset of the extender but the problem continues. I think the Extender says "No internet" & hence the laptop goes back to connect to the main router, but I am not 100% sure about this.
I have latest firmware on both the wifi adapter & the extender.
Is there a way, I can troubleshoot this further?
