    TL-WA850RE: Connection to admin refused

    Region : UnitedStates

    Model : TL-WA850RE

    Hardware Version : V1

    Firmware Version :

    ISP :


    I just changed routers and wanted to connect the extender to the new router. The WPS method did not work with my Asus/T-Mobile router. I read here that it sometimes happens with some router brands.

    So I connected to the extender with a network cable and tried to access the web admin at 192.168.0.254.

    I am getting connection refused, chrome error: ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED. I see the same error using Wget...

    I have tried:
    - reset to factory settings
    - use a different browser and device
    - fixed IP vs DHCP IP
    - connect via network cable or via Wifi

    In all situations, I was never able to bring the admin web interface, even though I was able to do so in the past

    It is surprising because the reset seemed to work, as I got the default SSID name.

    IS there a more powerful reset than holding down the reset button for more than 8 seconds?

    Any advice?

    So I connected to the extender with a network cable and tried to access the web admin at 192.168.0.254.

    Wi-Fi is disconnected at that time?
    When you reset it, any changes of lights on the device?
    What's the default gateway of local area connection?

    I have tried to connect to admin without wifi connection on the PC and with a wifi connection (to main router) on the PC. Same result.

    When I reset, all the lights lit up for 1/2 a second.

    When I connect to the extended, the default gateway is always 192.168.0.254.
    I can always ping that address, but the web connection is always refused...

    Press Windows Key and R Key together, type in http://192.168.0.254 and press Enter Is it working?
    Did you try different web browser or different computers?

    No it is not working. I tried different computers and different browsers. Even tried to use wget.

    It is as if the web server on the extender is blocking access as if a firewall rule was in place.

    But I have reset the device to its default configuration multiple times, it is still refusing any kind of http connection

    Can you telnet 192.168.0.254 if you know how to do that? If telnet fails, your device may be defective for some reason.

    Angry Same problem

    I am also experiencing the same problem. After several failures along the months in which the device after a reset or after some time again to work. Now, after another failure, it is impossible to access the web management. Always returns or refused connection or LAN connection reset. Is it possible that the firmware has been corrupted? In that case, is it possible flasearlo again with some external utility?

    No external utility. If you have done all possible troubleshooting, report it here, http://www.tp-link.com/en/support/contact/

    Do the hard reset again via the reset button, don't press too hard because the button could be stuck! Once the reset button got stuck, it can no longer work.

    If you finish the reset successfully, wait for the 850RE to power on again. Connect your computer to the 850RE. Set up a static IP address on that computer 192.168.0.10. mask 255.255.255.0.

    Open a browser and try to access the webpage at 192.168.0.254.

    Same issue

    Please help, I'm having the same issue. I have done a hard reset on the extender and whenever I try to connect to it, I get the message "Connection refused". I've done the reset multiple times, the name goes back to the default TP link_Extender. I've tried connecting and accessing the admin page via 2 different computers with the same result.

    Did you check IP address obtained? Is it correct? Can you ping 192.168.0.254 and telnet 192.168.0.254 successfully?
    There is troubleshooting guide.
