    How to extend my Archer C9 with my extender?

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    I got a Netgear Extender WN3000RP that works fine with my old router from Technicolor.
    Recently I bought a TP-LINK Archer C9 and replaced my old router.
    How ever I need (like before) extend my WI-FI.

    During the connect phase the Extender finds the Archer C9 and I can go through all steps, but at the last step when all is set and I confirm, the extender says I need to move it closer to the router. I even have tried to to do this half a meter away from the router, but no luck. If I try to extend my old router it works fine even if I'm over 15 meters away from it. Are there any settings I can change to make this work better?

    I do not think my extender is a dual band extender.
    Other devices can connect to the Archer C9 without problems.

    Do you guys got any solution?
    Best regards

    Did you change the channel for the Archer C9? Change the channel for 2.4GHz wifi to 1-11. If still not working, can contact the extender's support and see if there is any suggestion.

    Hello!
    Thanks for your reply!
    I never thought that this post get posted.
    I got great help from the support.
    But the solution was to upgrade the firmware in the extender.
    After that...tada!
    Works super!!
    Best regards
