    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!

    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.

    Do you have any idea what would nbe a good configuration for ping watchdog?

    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.

    Technically the correct way to do it is pointing to some reference ip, this can be your isp router or the main AP ...

    The interval is a maximum of 300 seconds for each send sequence, which means how long a request for availability of the selected IP will be sent ...

    The delay is maximum 300 seconds between each reception sequence, this means that every few seconds will be required without response from the host IP, so that a fault is considered ...

    And the counting fault is programmed in units, that is, every few consecutive faults must be detected before the computer restarts ....

    Before this, it is trial and error, since you determine the necessary values ​​according to your scenario ...

    Do not forget the restart time, so that it is correctly, the delay must be much greater than the device restart time, since it will enter an infinite restart loop ...

    Finally in a point-to-point where there are two teams, usually the IPs are pointed from one to another, in a multi-Point Point scenario, it gets complicated, and generally the stations point towards the AP ...

    I think maybe your typology has some problem. What about A is configured as AP mode, B and C are respectively configured as Client mode. TP-link outdoor AP is not good for bridge.
