    Ping Watch Dog - TL-WA7510N

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Dear All,

    I have three TL WA7510N and I am sharing internet from Home A to Home B and C. All of three are configured as Bridge with AP transmitting on the same channel.
    Internet sharing from Home A. AP on Home A connects with AP on Home B and AP on home B also connects with AP on Home C.
    The issue I am facing is that after some time one of them randomly hangs.
    I have heard about ping watch dog utility. Is it worth to use it in this scenario? How can I fix the issue without me needing to manually restart the AP. How can i configure Ping watchdog and what values should I enter?

    Or should I try to configure the APs in other mode????

    Thank You!

    I recommend PharOS CPE510.

    Yes. WA7510 in home A should be in AP mode, the ones in home B and C should be in client mode. Using bridge mode can create loops if you don't lock home B and home C to home A. Re ping watchdog: a reboot is not considered a fix of problematic setups.

    IP address = your main router

    Interval = default 300 seconds means ping is sent every 5 minutes.

    Delay = default 300 seconds means wait 5 minutes after a reboot before first ping

    Fail count = default 3 is the upper limit a ping can fail before a reboot is initiated

    BTW, this all is described in even more detail in the manual. You should read it.
