I live in a dorm room and bought a cheap router on sale (TP-Link TL-WR845N. At home I had a really bad wireless router and I never had problems with it, so I though it’s a go.
After I set it up with the username and password everything went ok for a few hours until it showed a orange earth ( no internet connection ), the wireless router crashed, I couldn’t even enter the settings. A reboot usually help it go back online after 2-3 minutes, but it works for a few hours sometimes, and for just 20 minutes sometimes.
I changed the IP of the router, disabled ipv6 ( thought it might be the problem ), updated the firmware, but nothing works. The connection from the dorm has no probles, as when I plug the cable from the wall, the internet works flawlessly.
What can I do? I want to try all I can before deciding to buy a new one.
Thanks in advance!
