    tp link wa850re

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    hello everybody..

    I'll get straight to the point..
    I have a network with a router and a wa850re working as fine as it gets.There are two iMac connected and casually any iPhone or android platforms.But i wanted to extend my network cause in some areas i don't have strength signal.So i bought a new one tp link wa850re.
    I logged in to the new one and make the configuration to the main router.
    I can connect to the new tp link wa850re with my iPhone and surf to the internet with no problems.
    The problem is that when i try to connect the 2 imacs, i can see the wifi signal,trying to login with the password and it doesn't connect.

    i manage to re-configure the old one from scratch and also disable the DHSP server to both repeaters but nothing again.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Same issue on my TL-WA850RE with my MacBook, all my other devices can connect with same password, when connect on my MacBook, it says "invalid password" or "incorrect password".
    What is the version of your iMac? Is there any error information when it fails to connect?

    Can send email to support@tp-link.com, they may need test on it

    I have one model from 2007 and one Late 2012.Both on Maverick OS.
    Whats your OS?
    The weird thing is that the old extender works with no problems.

    I can confirm that I have the same problem.

    I am using the ASUS RT-N12HP router with this repeater.

    This is very frustrating, my Macbook is my main device and I cannot even return the repeater.

    Spoke to support and received the latest beta firmware. The issue seems to have been fixed.
